Understanding the genius of the Bugatti family
All of the Bugattis exerted significant influence in their times and in various fields. The story of this family of artists, spanning at least three generations, is marked by failure and success, tragedy and triumph. Patriarch Carlo Bugatti began the dynasty as a painter, musical instrument maker, master cabinet and furniture maker, and silversmith. Carlo’s son Rembrandt, respectfully named in honour of the great artist, was a renowned bronze sculptor, exhibiting his talent at an early age. Rembrandt’s brother Ettore took his technical and artistic genius to the world of automotive design. Grandson Jean followed in his father Ettore’s footsteps in the automotive world. The story of the Bugatti family is explored in this extraordinary film, featuring interviews with leading experts in this field.
