Dotto was founded by Ivo Dotto in Castelfranco Veneto, in the Treviso region of Italy, back in 1962.
Ivo Dotto possessed great creativity and was very determined so he immediately made his mark on the market. In no time at all he had become the world’s leading manufacturer of tourist trains.
Ivo’s creations have been sold in more than fifty different countries spanning five continents.
Since the first road train was made, the company’s enthusiasm and fondness for the products it makes for customers all around the world have never waned, and expanding the product range has proved to be a winning strategy.
Dotto has successfully designed solutions for people’s travel requirements, not only in the leisure industry but also as part of people’s everyday lives in the city, with solutions to suit the new social awareness for environmental issues.
But what do these little trains have that makes them better than more common forms of transport like buses or trams?
The fascination stems from using something that we usually associate with another context, and using it out of context creates wonder and curiosity.
Pablo Picasso said that the only certain thing was that statues didn’t more, and then Alexander Calder invented mobile statues.
In a similar way, trains usually run on tracks whereas Dotto trains are free to travel wherever and this tempts us to try an unusual experience, a sort of a cross between a car and a train.
Dotto is now run by Bruna Dotto (president) and Sabrina Carraro (vice-president). It still designs and makes all of its trains from start to finish in Italy, reinforcing the truth behind the Made in Italy claim.
The invaluable advantages of Dotto Trains are their guarantee and customer service. Customers know that they can rely on a company which will stay with them for years to come after the initial purchase.
