In the late 1960s, the gigantic factory city of Togliatti was built on the steppes of Russia in under 36 months. Russians and Italians joined together to construct a vast factory complex where hundreds of thousands of copies of the Fiat 124 would roll off the conveyer belt as Ladas. The new city was named after the Italian communist leader Togliatti. Togliattigrad is the amazing story of an improbable international collaboration, full of misunderstandings and miscommunicated intentions, under the threatening clouds of the Cold War. A city where hundreds of thousands of inhabitants had set their hopes on the future of the modern automobile industry.
