The conception and initial design of this aircraft was
by the Torinese designer Bruno Giardino.
For a number of years he has been passionately
conducting research in this field and has patented various
design features of this project. The preliminary engineering work
for the aircraft was the subject of a degree thesis by Pier Luigi Guerrieri,
an Aerospace Engineering student at the Turin Polytechnic University,
under the guidance of Dr. Paolo Maggiore, Professor of the Polytechnic's Aerospace Engineering Department. The transformation of the design into a 3-D CAD model was by a young and promising designer, Fabio Ferrante, one of Giardino's former pupils at the Turin Polytechnic.
