Luciano Bove

I was born in Nocera Inferiore Italy in 1963.  
At  the age of 19 I  moved to California to study at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, and in 1989 I graduated from ACCD in Human Science in the field of Transportation Design.
Straight out of college I started work at the FIAT Design Center in Turin, Italy, where I stayed for 12 years.  One of the most important projects I worked on at Fiat was design and management for the Fiat Seicento (1995-98).
In 2000 I moved to the Renault Design Center to be Senior Design Manager at the Renault Technocentre in Guyancourt, France.  As part of this role I took charge of the Renault Design Academy India, an online talent program that generated four internships at the Renault Design Studio in Chennai, India (2017-2018).
Starting October 2019 I was General Design Manager at Jinbei/Renault in Shenyang, China, and then in 2021 I joined Renault´s light commercial vehicle Design Studio as Senior Design Project Manager at Technocentre Renault in Guyancourt, France working on LCV Renault brand projects & Hyvia Hydrogen Technology vehicles Design.
