Carrozzeria Castagna is an Italian coachbuilding company based in Milan, Italy.
The company history began in 1849 when Carlo Castagna bought the Ferrari coachbuilding business. Carrozzeria Castagna built the first coach automobile with a combustion engine (Benz quadricycle).
Later the company worked with larger car manufacturers, including: Isotta Fraschini, Duesenberg, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, and Mercedes-Benz. The original company ceased in 1954.
The company name was revived twice in the 1990s. In 1994, the Carrozzeria Castagna name was bought by a businessman Uberto Petra and Gioacchino Acampora, the latter an Italian automotive designer who created all of the recent projects of Castagna Milano, starting from the re-body of an Alfa Romeo SZ as an Alfa Romeo Vittoria Castagna. The latest works of the company include a series of customised runabout and wood-panelled cars based on Fiat 500 and Mini.
