The first car produced by FIAT (Italian automobile manufacturer in Turin) inaugurated by the Duke of Genoa. Within 6 months, ten vehicles had been built. Later, the brand's great popularity came from its racing prowess.

Wishing to evoke through Tintin, the history of means of transport, peoples, countries..., Hergé developed the Chromos project with the help of E.P. Jacobs.
The first images appeared in 1946 in the Tintin newspaper and the chromos could be obtained in exchange for Tintin stamps.
Broader at the start, the project narrows and becomes the history of means of transport.
The 300 existing chromos are signed Hergé and appear in 2 stages.
Firstly, in collaboration with E.P.Jacobs, the series AEROSTATION and CHEMINS DE FER appeared.
Then in collaboration with J.Martin appeared the series THE AUTOMOTIVE FROM THE ORIGINS TO 1900. WAR AVIATION 1939-45. AVIATION FROM THE ORIGINS TO 1914. THE NAVY FROM THE ORIGINS TO 1700. THE NAVY FROM 1700 TO 1800
