A great color!

I really like this Sprint. The detailer was a little heavy-handed with the ArmorAll on the seats and door panels, the armrests are from a later car and the radio block-off isn't correct. But hey, that stuff is minor; this is one beautiful Sprint.

Agree, Celeste is likely the nickname of the sky blue color FIAT painted the 1950 - 70s era Cinquecentos.
Celeste = heaven, or heavenly.

Italian companies have interesting associations with colors. Bianci bicycles have their trademark light green color. Basically, the history there was Bianci purchased a quantity of mismatched paint from a local paint manufacturer. The color turned out to be a hit among cyclists and the rest is history!
