    The younger man in this picture, and the young boy in several of the other photographs is Maurizio Conti, Michele's son. Together father and son worked on some of their commissions, and after his fathers death in 1996, Maurizio continued to complete back orders. Unfortunately he too passed on a few years later.

    This Ferrari is the one in the short film posted on page 7. However at the very end of that short clip, when another hand is demonstrating the virtues of another model, the one in the cabinet, I am sure that is the tweed clad sleeve of Sr. Conti!

    Both men had made many "solid" models, -Several examples follow and show the "cost effective" technique used to "suggest" spoked wheels.

    The transition to more detail models had to be supported by their individual customer bases. I do not of course know how many patrons each man had, nor how "loyal" those who purchased their models, were?

    It seems to me that Manuel Olive was to switch to "full builds" exclusively before Michele Conti, but again, I think that was more a reflection of satisfying the expectations of their respective customers, as both men had demonstrated the ability to make pretty much anything!

    This Ferrari and the Lotus above are the work of Conti.



    ​This image and the above Lotus were taken from the Bonhams catalog of The Transportation History Sale, Dec. 4th, 2014

    -and below are images from an ardent collector.

    and, Manuel Olive Sans, did a limited series of models of early phonographs, these are the only models that he made more than one of, other than these, all of his models are unique!
