The Fiat 500 was a cheap and compact city vehicle, which became immensely popular in post-war Europe. Now this Fiat 500 has already sealed its status as a design icon as a 1968 original has entered the collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art. However, there's now a whole museum in Garlenda devoted to this global icon. Take a look at these pictures of how Fiat is celebrating the car's six decades of production.
To mark the 60th anniversary of the Fiat 500, more than 1,200 Fiat owners drove their 500s to the Italian foothills for a social gathering.
Hundreds of Fiat 500 originals were parked to make different formations for the birthday bash. This was the 34th gathering of its kind.
There were different demo events, talks and parades that took place in Garlenda, North-west Italy for the participating Fiat owners.
The Fiat 500 is an Italian classic hatchback that came into inception on 4th July 1957. Since then, it has now gone on to become one of the most iconic cars.
Fiat had launched the 500 Sessantesimo, a 500 60th Anniversary Limited Edition earlier this year. Only 560 units will be made to fit the name and the 500's 60th year of existence.
If that wasn't enough, one million stamps will also be made with the design of the old 500 in the foreground and the latest iteration in the background.
This stamp is likely to become a collector’s item as it is also graced by the Italian colours along with 'Fiat Nuova 500' mentioned on it.
