It can be said that Pubbli Mais collected the historical legacy of the Pubbli Auto founded by De Gregorio. Vinicio Mais and De Gregorio at the beginning of their career were in fact both apprentices and colleagues at the I.P.A.I company in Turin who invented the methodologies for creating the graphics in paint on vehicles.
In fact in the golden years of rally, the '60 -70-80, Pubbli Auto and Pubbli Mais Torino (as we signed at the time) they were the only two companies able to realize the graphics in varnish of these cars in a totally artisan way, collaborating directly with the leaders of Abarth and Fiat. When in 1984 Pubbli Auto closed its doors, Michele Mininni their most qualified collaborator (by the way he created all the liveries of the official Lancia Stratos car) joined Vinicio in Pubbli Mais.
Vinicio Mais, also strong of the experience gained thanks to the collaboration at a young age with Carlo Abarth and his team
technique, was the author of the graphic realization in paint of many cars World Champions with Abarth, Fiat and Lancia cars born in Turin, chief town of Piedmont (Italy).
Pubbli Mais can boast of having developed for the Lancia the very first Martini liveries on cars from the Delta S4 to the Lancia Delta Integrale 16v 1990 for the World Championships. These processes included the complete redrawing of the lines from scratch starting from the sketches supplied by Abarth and painting of the finished livery.
Among the graphics born in our premises, there is also the checkered livery of the famous Lancia Delta 16v, the only Lancia car to run on a red base with a Martini livery. This car, driven by Miki Biasion, won the 1989 Sanremo Rally and the Lancia graduated World Champion.
In addition, starting from the end of the 1960s until 1990, we can remember the first absolute executions racing cars like Lancia LC2 racing cars (new graphics), Fiat 131 MS livery, Fiat 131 and Ritmo Oil Fiat yellow and blue livery designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, Lancia 037 Scuderia Grifone, Lancia ECV, Lancia ECV2, Lancia Delta S4, Lancia Delta 4WD Martini, Lancia Delta Integrale 8v and 16v Martini and the F1 car Osella Squadra Corse livery Denim-MS driven by Eddie Cheever.
Since 1975 Pubbli Mais has designed and created the graphics of the magazine GENTE MOTORI numerous cars that have taken part in the Raids around the world.
Until the 1990s Pubbli Mais was a leading company in the production of paint graphics for the major automotive and commercial vehicle brands such as Fiat, Viberti, Iveco and the most famous italian companies of the time such as Rai, Panna Elena, Casa dei Cappelletti, Tortellini Rana, Godino Giocattoli, Caffè Costadoro, Galup, Loacker, Latte Abit and many others. Particularly valuable were all the mixed brush and paint executions for the most important brands of beer (Foster's, Bulldog, Beck's, Guinness) both on the wooden signs of the pubs of Turin and on the vehicles that were completely decorated.
