Schaltkulisse goes to Italy to discover Bugatti's rebirth place in Campogalliano, Italy. The Italian era of Bugatti is one of the most significant for the brand and is a human story, built off passion and dedication. This documentary is our tribute to the brand of all superlatives. We take with us some very special cars: a Bugatti Type 13 Brescia, a Bugatti Chiron, as well as two cars built in that very factory: an EB110 GT and a one of three, Bugatti EB112. Our documentary displays the testimonies of people who worked sleepless nights to revive the brand in the late 80's and early 90's. They talk us through their emotional stories and personal anecdotes at La Fabbrica Blu.
