Innocenti was a world renowned mechanical company established in 1933 by Ferdinando Innocenti.
Innocenti was a blacksmith who patented the Innocenti Pipe. A common joint in scaffolding which is still regularly used today. By far the best known product from Innocenti has got to be the famous scooters from Lambretta. I believe these were built in the Crystal Palace which is what you see here today.
Innocenti also produced cars, some of their own and also some under Licence for the British Motor Corporation and even Maseratis Bi-turbo range was built here.
There is an ongoing debate about the site with contractors who wish to flatten the site for building homes and an historical group who feel it should be saved and not suffer the same fate as the Alfa Romeo plant in Portello.
