’è una storia sui rapporti tra Henry Ford e
Giovanni Agnelli. Una storia che racconta
uno scambio di know-how. Il Sig. Ford insegnò
come trasformare la produzione artigianale Fiat in
catena di montaggio. Che cosa ebbe in cambio?
Bene, sembra che il Sig. Agnelli gli abbia mostrato
il progetto del futuro modello Fiat 514. Il modello
Ford A conosciuto in tutto il mondo entrò in produzione un po’ più tardi ed era davvero simile alla
Fiat! Ad ogni modo, eravamo nel 1929, un anno
che cambiò le regole di qualsiasi cosa. In una parola: crisi. Dalla grande economia alle persone comuni, le cose, le idee, i progetti dovevano essere
ridimensionati a un livello inferiore.
La 514 fu un’auto di gamma media prodotta dalla FIAT dal
1929 al 1932. Sostituiva la Fiat 509, ed era considerata la
prima vettura compatta mai costruita, poiché era lunga circa 4 metri. Progettato da Tranquillo Zerbi, è stata un grande
successo commerciale ed è stata esportata in gran numero in
paesi stranieri. Era disponibile anche in versione Taxi, la “514
L”. Furono realizzate tre versioni sport, tutte con finiture eleganti, la “514 S”, la “514 S MM” come Mille Miglia e la “514
CA” come Coppa delle Alpi. L’auto era equipaggiata con un
he story on the relationship between Henry
Ford and Giovanni Agnelli is a story of a mutual exchange of know-how. With the help of
Mr Ford Fiat turned its craft production into an
assembly line. In return, it is said that Mr Agnelli
showed Mr Ford the design of the forthcoming
Fiat model 514. The worldwide renown “Ford
model A” went into production a little later, and
it was indeed similar to the Fiat model 514. It
was 1929, a year that was about to change the
world as they knew it. From the big economy to
the everyday life, things, ideas, projects had to
be resized to meet more affordable standards.
The 514 was a medium-range car produced by FIAT from
1929 to 1932. It replaced the Fiat 509, and it was considered the first compact car ever built, as it was around
4m in lenght. Designed by Tranquillo Zerbi, it was a great
commercial success and was widely exported to foreign
countries. It was available also in a Taxi version, the “514
L”. Three sports versions were built, all with elegant finishes, the “514 S”, the “514 S MM” as Mille Miglia and
the “514 CA” as Coppa delle Alpi. The car was equipped
motore quattro cilindri in linea da 1438 cm³ con una potenza
di 28 cv, cambio a 4 marce e trazione posteriore. L’accensione era elettrica a batteria. Sulla “514 CA” venne installato un
servofreno a depressione che aiutava nello sforzo in frenata.
La “514” standard raggiungeva gli 80 km/h mentre la “514
CA” raggiungeva i 105 km/h.
Fu costruita in 36970 unità e venduta in diverse versioni di
carrozzeria: berlina a due e quattro porte, spider a due porte,
coupé a due porte e cabriolet a due e quattro porte.
Fu anche prodotta in Spagna dalla “Fiat Hispania” in una fabbrica acquistata da Hispano-Suiza, situata a Guadalajara. La
fabbrica fu distrutta nel 1936 durante la guerra civile spagnola e non fu mai ricostruita. Nel 1950, Fiat investirà notevoli
capitali per un nuovo stabilimento a Barcellona, nella “zona
franca”, creando la SEAT.
La Fiat 514 verrà sostituita dalla Fiat 508 Balilla.
with a 1438 cm³ four-cylinder in-line engine with a
power output of 28 hp, 4 speed gearbox and rear-wheel
drive. The ignition was battery-powered. On the “514
CA” a depression booster was installed helping the braking effort. The standard “514” reached 80 km /h while
the “514 CA” reached 105 km/h. It was built in 36970
units and was marketed in several body versions: two
and four-door sedan, two-door spiders, two-door coupes
and two and four-door convertibles.
It was also manufactured in Spain by “Fiat Hispania”
in a factory purchased from Hispano-Suiza, located in
Guadalajara. The factory was destroyed in 1936 during
the Spanish Civil War and was never rebuilt. In 1950,
Fiat will invest substantial capital for a new production
plant in Barcelona, in the “free zone”, creating SEAT.
The Fiat 514 will be replaced by the Fiat 508 Balilla.
Nata nel 1930, l’auto è sempre stata italiana. La Fiat 514 Spider, telaio n° 223194 venne consegnata alla filiale di vendita
a Genova il 4 dicembre 1930. Consegna confermata dai documenti Fiat. L’auto è stata completamente restaurata e revisionata meccanicamente: nuovi freni, frizione, il costosissimo
radiatore e qualsiasi particolare che doveva essere sostituito. Il
restauro da concorso presenta l’auto in un tipico set bicolore,
con parafanghi scuri e corpo vettura beige. Gli interni sono
quelli in tipica pelle goffrata. Molti gli accessori come la borsa
in pelle, il termometro acqua art-decò sul tappo del radiatore,
il faro orientabile-specchietto a lato del parabrezza.

In order to harmonize fiscal procedures between EU Member
States, on 1 January 2001 new regulations came into force in
Italy, and the margin scheme was also extended to auction
houses. Under Art. 45 of Law No. 342 of 21 November 2000, said
scheme also applies to sales made under commission contracts
entered into with: (a) private individuals; (b) entities subject to
VAT that have subjected the transaction to the margin scheme;
(c) entities that could not detract said tax pursuant to Art. 19,
19-bis, and 19-bis2 of Presidential Decree 633/72 (i.e. the sale
was made in exemption regime under Art. 10, 27-quinquies); (d)
entities benefitting from the exemption regime granted to small
enterprises in their own country.
By virtue of the specific legislation in force, in the aforesaid
cases, Finarte will apply the relevant VAT, if any, or the equivalent
tax, whenever applicable. No specific symbol will be used to
indicate lots sold under the margin scheme.
During some auctions, the latest exchange rates for the main
foreign currencies, concurrently with the bids made in the
auction room, may be shown on a screen.
Exchange rates are approximate, and all bids made at the auction
will be expressed in Euro. Finarte will not be held liable for any
errors or omissions concerning data shown on the screen.
The payment of purchased lots will be made in Euro. The
equivalent amount in other currencies will be accepted only if
calculated on the basis of the exchange rate of the day when
payment is made.
In order to protect your safety when you are inside our exhibiting
areas, Finarte will seek to display all artworks in such a way as to
prevent any danger. However, if you handle the objects displayed
on our premises, you will do so under your own responsibility.
Some heavy and bulky objects can be dangerous if handled
improperly. In the event that you wish to closely examine an
object, please seek assistance from our staff.
Some artworks on display could be marked with a “Please don’t
touch” note or other similar expressions. If you wish to examine
such objects, please ask assistance from our staff.
1. BEFORE THE AUCTION
Estimates published in the catalogue
Estimates are published in the catalogue for potential buyers
are approximate, and lots can reach prices that are both higher
and lower than the indicated estimates. It is always advisable
to consult with Finarte before an auction, as estimates may be
subject to changes. Estimates published in the auction catalogue
are not inclusive of the Buyer’s Premium and VAT.
The following list contains an explanation of the symbols used
in the auction catalogue.
o Minimum Guaranteed Price
In the event of a lot marked with this symbol, the Seller has been
guaranteed a minimum price in connection with one or more
P Lots owned by Finarte
In case of lots marked with this symbol, the property of the same,
in part or in full, belongs to Finarte.
PI Concerned Party
It means that, in connection with a certain lot, bids may also be
made by entities having a direct or indirect interest in the same,
such as a beneficiary or will executor that has sold the lot, or
a co-owner of the same, or any other party having provided a
guarantee in relation to the lot.
SR Without Reserve
If the lots contained in the catalogue are not marked with the
(SR) symbol, they are subject to a sale with reserve. The Reserve
is the minimum Hammer Price agreed upon between Finarte
and the Seller, below which the lot will not be sold. Generally,
the Reserve corresponds to a percentage of the Minimum Presale Estimate and does not exceed said amount. In the event
that the lot is sold without reserve, it will be marked with this
symbol. Should all lots contained in the catalogue be subject to
sale without reserve, no symbol will be used in connection with
each single lot.
® Artist’s Resale Right
With reference to lots marked with this symbol, the Buyer
undertakes to pay the “Artist’s Resale Right” that ought to be paid
by the seller under Art. 152, 1st Paragraph, Law 633 of 22 April
1941, in accordance with the amount indicated in the “Artist’s
Resale Right” section above.
I Lot sold by a company, where the Hammer price is subject to

of the temporary importation are on the behalf of the seller.
IA Lot in temporary artistic importation.
Condition of lots
Potential buyers undertake to carefully examine the lot when the
same is exhibited before the auction, in the event that the same
is put on display. Upon request, Finarte may provide, at its own
discretion and, if the case may be, upon payment, a report on
the condition of the lot. The lack of any express referral to the
condition of the lot does not imply the absence of any defects.
Finarte acts as the Seller’s agent and disclaims any liability with
regard to the description of the items contained in the catalogs,
brochures and any other illustrative material; these descriptions,
as well as any other indication or illustration, must be considered
purely indicative and they cannot generate credit lines of any
kind in the Bidders. All the auctions will be preceded by an
exhibition in order to allow a detailed examination about the
authenticity, the state of conservation, the origin, the weight
or the lack of quality of the objects. Neither Finarte nor the
personnel appointed by Finarte can issue any guarantee in this
regard, except for the cases provided for by law.
Any reference to the conditions of the lot in the catalog is not the
same as the complete description of the state of conservation. The
buyer (i) is responsible for verifying the condition, authenticity
and completeness or provenance of any motorized car or any
other lot purchased.
The vehicles are sold in their current conditions. The information
in the catalog is not binding. Indeed, the conditions of a car may
vary between the time of its description in the catalog and the
time of its presentation for sale. Since the exhibition takes place
for several days prior to the sale and allowing awareness of the
conditions of the vehicles, no complaint will be accepted once
the sale by auction is pronounced.
Electrical and Mechanical Devices
All electric or mechanical devices must be considered
exclusively on the basis of their artistic and aesthetic value, and
cannot be considered functioning. Before using the devices, the
electrical system must be certified by a qualified electrician.

condition that, no later than five (5) years of the date of the sale,
the Buyer does the following:
provides Finarte in writing, within three (3) months as
of the date when the same received information inducing him to
deem that the lot is a Counterfeit, with the lot number, the date
of the auction where the lot was purchased, and the reasons why
the Buyer deems that the lot is a Counterfeit;
is able to return the lot to Finarte, free from third party
claims of any kind, after the date of the sale, and the lot is in the
same condition as it was at said date;
provides Finarte with the reports prepared by two
independent scholars or experts of acknowledged expertise,
which explain the reasons why the lot is considered a Counterfeit.
Finarte reserves the right to proceed with the termination of the
sale even in case of absence, in part or in full, of one or more of
the aforesaid conditions.
Finarte will not be bound by the opinions provided by the Buyer
and reserves the right to request the further opinion of other
experts at its own expenses. Should Finarte determine to terminate
the sale, it may reimburse the Buyer, in a reasonable amount, of
the expenses incurred by the latter to obtain the opinion of the
two independent experts accepted by both Finarte and the Buyer.
2.4 Finarte will not reimburse said expenses in the following
the catalogue description is consistent with the opinion
of scholars and experts generally accepted at the date of the sale,
or the catalogue description indicated that the authenticity or
attribution of the lot was controversial;
as of the date of publication of the catalogue, the
fact that the lot was counterfeit could be verified only by
way of examinations generally considered unsuitable for the
purposes concerned or difficult to carry out, whose costs were
unreasonable or that could have reasonably damaged or resulted
in a loss of value of the lot.
4. SALES BY AUCTION
3. FINARTE’S AND THE SELLER’S LIABILITY TO THE BUYER
4.3 Anyone making a bid at an auction will be considered a
party directly concerned by the purchase unless otherwise
agreed between Finarte and the same with a written agreement,
where the latter declares to act in the name and on behalf of a
third party, and this is accepted by Finarte. In the aforesaid case,
the auction attendee will be jointly liable with the third party
concerned vis-à-vis Finarte in connection with all obligations
arising from the Terms and Conditions of Sale.
4.8 The auctioneer may, at its sole discretion and at any time in
the course of the auction:
withdraw a lot from the auction;
review a sale offer relating to a lot, whenever the same
may deem that it contains mistakes and/or could give rise to
adopt any measures that the same deems adequate to
the circumstances at hand.
4.4 Written bids are valid only if received by Finarte at least 24
hours before the beginning of the auction and sufficiently clear
and complete, notably with respect to the lot and the price at
which the bidder intends to purchase it. In the event that Finarte
receives multiple written bids of the same amount on a specific
lot, and they are the highest bids made on such lot, the same will
be allotted to the bidder whose bid has been received first by
Finarte. If you intend to make written bids, please fill in the “Bid
Form” annexed to the auction catalogue and send it off with the
documentation indicated therein.
4.9 At some auctions, a video screen may be operated.
Finarte will not be held liable for either the correspondence
to the original of the image displayed on the screen and any
malfunctions of the video screen.
6.1 The lot will be delivered to the Buyer at the expenses of the
same no later than (5) business days of the date of the sale. The
lot will be delivered to the Buyer (or a person duly authorised by
the same) only after Finarte has received the Total Amount Due.
4.10 Finarte represents that the lot can be declared an object
of cultural interest by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage
and Activities and Tourism under Art. 13 of the Urbani Code.
In the aforesaid case, or in the event that a procedure has been
undertaken in order to declare the lot an object of cultural interest
under Art. 14 of the Urbani Code, Finarte will announce said
circumstance before the sale. Should the lot be declared of cultural
interest, the Seller will notify the sale to the competent Ministry
under Art. 59 of the Urbani Code. The sale will be subjected to
the condition precedent that the Ministry does not exercise its preemption right within sixty days as of the date of receipt of the
relevant notice, or within one hundred and eighty days under Art.
61, 2nd Paragraph, of the Urbani Code. In the period when the
pre-emption right may be exercised, the lot cannot be delivered to
the Buyer in accordance with Art. 61 of the Urbani Code.
6.2 Should the Buyer fail to collect the lot within five (5) business
days of the date of the sale, Finarte may charge an amount
corresponding to 1% of the Hammer Price for each month of
delay in the collection of the lot, starting from the fifth business
day following the sale.
3.1 Any representations provided by Finarte, either verbally or
in writing, including those contained in the catalogue, reports,
comments or evaluations concerning any characteristic of a
lot, such as authorship, authenticity, provenance, attribution,
origin, date, age, period, cultural origin, source, its quality,
including its price or value, exclusively reflect opinions, and
can be reviewed, and also changed, by Finarte, before the lot
is offered for sale.
3.2 Finarte and its employees, collaborators, directors or
consultants cannot be held liable for any mistakes or omissions
contained in said representations.
3.3 Without prejudice to what set forth by clauses 3.1 and 3.2,
Finarte’s liability to the Buyers in connection with the purchase
of a lot by the latter is limited to the Hammer Price and the
Buyer’s Premium paid to Finarte by the same.
The limitations that apply to Finarte’s liability are also extended
to the Seller’s liability vis-à-vis the Buyer.
Except for the case of gross negligence or misconduct, Finarte
or its employees, collaborators, directors or consultants may not
be held liable for acts or omissions concerning the preparation
or conduction of the auction or any issue relating to the sale of
3.4 The descriptions in the catalogue for watches, clocks and
jewels in relation to preservation and/or restorations are given
as guidelines to the prospective buyer but may under no
circumstance be considered exhaustive. All the watches and
jewels must be examined thoroughly by the potential buyer
in order to be able to ascertain their status. The absence of
indication of a defect in the lot, of a restoration work or of the
presence of a non-original part, does not preclude the possibility
that these special conditions exist.
Wristwatches in water-resistant cases have been opened to
examine their movements: therefore, Finarte suggests that such
a watch be controlled by an authorized dealer before using the
same in conditions where water is present.
Straps made of organic material are associated with the watch
for display purposes only: prospective buyers are aware that
the importation to foreign countries of materials derived from
endangered or otherwise protected species (purely as an
example: tortoiseshell, ivory) are subject to CITES international
Prospective buyers should therefore acquire the necessary
information on such restrictions prior to their participation in the
sale of lots containing, even though partially, materials falling
under these rules.
4.1 At its sole discretion, Finarte may prohibit anyone from
participating in some auctions.
4.2 The auctioneer, in conducting the auction, starts from a bid
that the same deems adequate, in consideration of the value
of the lot and of competing bids. The auctioneer can make
consecutive bids or in reply to other bids, in the Seller’s interest,
until the Reserve is reached.
4.5 Bids made over the telephone are valid if confirmed in
writing before the auction. Finarte reserves the right to record
bids made over the telephone and declares that it may not be
held liable, at any title, vis-à-vis auction attendees in connection
with problems or disruptions affecting the phone service (e.g.,
interruption or suspension of the connection).
4.6 Finarte will indicate on the Website (at least 24 hours before
the date of the auction) and/or in the catalogue the auctions
where it will be possible to make bids online as well. If you wish
to participate in an auction through the Internet, you will be able
to make your bids in real time. Participation in an auction through
the Internet is subject to your registration with the Website or
with other Websites through which the online bidding service
will be provided and the subsequent signing up for the auction
at least 24 hours before the auction begins. Once granted access
to the Website as a registered user, you will be held liable for
any activities carried out on the Website by using your access
credentials. You will promptly inform Finarte of any unlawful
use of your password or in case of loss of the same. In the latter
event, Finarte will provide you with a new password granting
access to the Website, and you will no longer be able to use
the previous password for access to the Website or participation
in auctions. We invite you to log out at the end of any session
on the Website. Finarte does not guarantee that the Website is
always operational and that there will be no disruptions when
you participate in an auction, or/and that the Website and the
relevant server is free from viruses or any other hazardous or
potentially hazardous materials. Consequently, except in case of
willful misconduct or gross negligence, Finarte may not be held
liable for any technical problems arising when the auction is
under way (e.g. slow browsing speed or disruptions in the server
managing participation in the auction through the Internet).
Finarte will not be held liable for any damage or inconvenience
suffered as a consequence of any improper use of the Website
in accordance with this information and the conditions of use
of the Website. You will refrain from using any kind of software
or tool affecting or interfering (also only potentially) with the
conduct of the auction, and undertake to use the Website and
any related applications in good faith and a proper manner.
4.7 The auctioneer will accept the highest bid by the fall of the
hammer, which will be the Hammer Price, and consequently the
conclusion of the sale contract between the Seller and the Buyer.
5.1 The Buyer will pay the Total Amount Due to Finarte
immediately after the end of the auction.
5.2 The ownership of the lot will be transferred from the Seller to
the Buyer only upon payment by the Buyer of the Total Amount
5.3 In case of non-payment or late payment, in full or in part, of
the Total Amount Due, Finarte may, at its discretion, enforce the
payment or terminate the contract under Art. 1454 of the Italian
Civil Code, being it understood that the period available for the
payment performance agreed therein is of five (5) days, in any
case without prejudice to Finarte’s right to claim damages and
sell the lot on behalf and at the expenses of the Buyer, pursuant
to Art. 1515 of the Italian Civil Code.
5.4 In case of non-payment or late payment by the Buyer, in
full or in part, of the Total Amount Due, Finarte may attribute
any payment made to Finarte by the Buyer to the Buyer’s debt
constituted by the Total Amount Due, or any other sum due to
Finarte by the Buyer and derived from other contractual relations.
5.5 In case of delay in the payment of the Total Amount Due for a
period of over five (5) business days as from the auction, Finarte
will store the lot in its own premises or elsewhere at the Buyer’s
risk and expenses. Again in case of delay in payment for a period
longer than as indicated above, the Buyer will pay interest on
arrears to Finarte at the 3-month Euribor rate set forth by law plus
5%, without prejudice to Finarte’s right to claim damages for
further damages suffered. The lot will be delivered to the Buyer
only after the latter has paid the Total Amount Due, all storage
and shipment costs and any other expenses incurred.
5.6 In case of non-payment or late payment, Finarte may reject
any bids made by the Buyer or a representative of the same in
the course of following auctions or request that the Buyer lodges
a sum in cash as security before accepting his bids.
5.7 Finarte may offset any amounts due to the Buyer, at any title,
against any sums due by the Buyer to the same at any title.
6. DELIVERY AND COLLECTION OF THE LOT
7. TRANSFER OF RISK
7.1 Any risk relating to a purchased lot is transferred to the Buyer
whenever is the earliest of the following dates:
(i) when the Buyer receives the purchased lot; or
(ii) when the Buyer pays the Total Amount Due to the Buyer, or
(iii) the fifth (5) business day following the sale.
7.2 The Buyer will be indemnified for any loss or damage
occurring to the lot after the sale but before the risk is transferred,
but said indemnity could not exceed the lot Hammer Price,
along with the Buyer’s Premium received by Finarte. Except in
case of willful misconduct or gross negligence, Finarte may not
be held liable for the loss or damage to the frame or the glass
containing and/or covering prints, paintings or other artworks,
unless the frame or glass constitute the lot sold at auction.
In no circumstance may Finarte be held liable in case of loss
or damage due to any work (including restoration and cleaning
operations, and work on the frame) carried out by independent
experts designated by Finarte with the Seller’s consent, or the
loss or damage caused or originated, directly or indirectly, from:
a) changes in humidity or temperature;
b) normal wear and tear or gradual deterioration due to
operations on the lots and/or hidden faults and defects (including
c) improper treatment;
d) war, nuclear fission, radioactive contamination, chemical,
biochemical or electromagnetic weapons;
e) acts of terrorism.
7.3 The packaging and shipment of the lot to the Buyer are
made entirely at the risk and expenses of the same, and under
no circumstances will Finarte be held liable for any actions or
omissions of packaging workers or carriers.
8. EXPORTATION FROM THE ITALIAN REPUBLIC
10. PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION
8.1 The exportation of a lot outside the territory of the Italian
Republic may require a certificate of free circulation or an export
Obtaining a certificate of free circulation and/or export license is
the responsibility of the Buyer. In case of non-issuance or delay
in the issuance of the certificate of free circulation and/or the
export license, said circumstance would not constitute a reason
for termination or cancellation of the sale, nor justification of
late payment of the Total Amount Due by the Buyer.
10.1 Pursuant to Art. 13 of Legislative Decree 196 of 30 June
2003 (“Personal Data Protection Code”), Finarte informs you that
the Data provided by you will be processed by the same mainly

order to manage the relationship with sellers and buyers (such
as, for example, the management of sales proceeds, invoices
and shipping operations); (c) any checks and evaluations of
auction sales report and the risks related to the same; (d) the
fulfilment of tax, accounting and legal liabilities and/or orders
issued by public bodies, and (e) shipment of promotional and

Any dispute that may arise in connection with the application,
construction or performance of these Condition of Sale will be
subject to the exclusive competence of the Court of Milan.
the seventh month following the delivery of the lot, it becomes
the consumer’s burden to prove that the defect existed at the
time of delivery. In order to avail himself of the Legal Guarantee,
therefore, the consumer shall first give proof of the date of
the sale and of the delivery of the lot. The consumer, in order
to be able to provide this proof, should, therefore, keep all
documentation suitable to demonstrate the sale (for example,
the purchase invoice) and the date of delivery or collection of
13.4 With reference to the definition of “lack of conformity”,
please refer to the provisions of Article 129, paragraph II, of the
Consumer Code. Excluded from the scope of the Legal Guarantee
are defects caused by accidental events or by responsibilities of
the consumer, or by any use of the lot that is incompatible with
its intended use.
13.5 In the event of a lack of conformity duly reported in the
appropriate terms, the consumer is entitled: (i) first of all, to the
repair or replacement of the lot, at his choice, free of charge,
unless the solution requested is impossible or excessively
expensive compared to the other; (ii) second, (in cases where
repair or replacement is impossible or prohibitively expensive, or
the repair or replacement did not take place within a reasonable
time or the repair or replacement made previously caused
significant inconvenience to the consumer) to a reduction in
the Hammer Price or the termination of the contract, at his
choice. The remedy requested is overly burdensome if it imposes
unreasonable costs on the Seller with respect to alternative
remedies that may be exercised, taking into account: (i) the value
the object would have if there were no lack of conformity; (ii)
the nature of the lack of conformity; (iii) the possibility that the
alternative remedy could be implemented without significant
inconvenience to the consumer.
13.6 If, during the period of validity of the Legal Guarantee, the
lot manifests a lack of conformity, the consumer may inform
Finarte of this fact at the contacts provided in Article 12. Finarte
will reply promptly to communications of any alleged lack of
conformity and indicate to the consumer the specific procedure
to be followed.
13. LEGAL GUARANTEE OF CONFORMITY
13.1 All lots sold through Finarte are covered by the legal
guarantee of conformity provided for in Articles 128-135 of the
Consumer Code (Legal Guarantee).
13.2 The Legal Guarantee is given to the consumer (who,
pursuant to Article 3, paragraph I, letter a) of the Consumer
Code, is an individual who acts for purposes unrelated to his
business, commercial, craft or professional activities).
13.3 The Seller is liable to the consumer for any lack of
conformity existing at the time of delivery of the product, and
that becomes apparent within two years of that delivery. The
lack of conformity must be reported to the Seller within two
months of the date of which it was discovered. Otherwise the
guarantee is voided. Unless proved otherwise, it is assumed
that any lack of conformity which becomes apparent within six
months of delivery of the product already existed on the delivery
date, unless this assumption is incompatible with the nature of
the product or with the nature of the lack of conformity. From
