    No. I read it was Chiti but in Alan Henry's book Ferrari, The Grand Prix Cars it says Fantuzzi, who I assumed built the body, not designed it?

    Yes correct.
    Lamborghini was born and lived in Renazzo and his factory (tractors) was in Cento.
    Both towns are located in Ferrara province.

    Kare,

    it is only a very short sequence of pictures, very few seconds. It is not from a cinema movie and it stands alone in some manner.

    I would feel it was done with a 8mm Film Camera, later called Normal8 camera, which at that time (before Super8) did only catch pictures for approximately 1 to 1.5 meters length of film in one go, if memory is right.

    Number plate is FE*40660. The gate in the background is being opened by the guardia and Ferruccio enters the industrial site.

    Carissimi saluti

    It was Carlo Chiti I believe but he was inspired by others including Fantuzzi and the Ferrari historian Hans Tanner. The following passage does not refer to the 156 in particular.

    From Doug Nye's Dino, The Little Ferrari book:

    "The twin-inlet 'nostril' nose was to become a Chiti-Ferrari trademark, as it appeared also on his monoposto designs.

    Hans Tanner-late Ferrari historian -explained its origin as having been brought to Ferrari by Fantuzzi, the former Maserati body-builder after he had bodied three Piccolo Maserati 250Fs for sale to private customers. These cars carried twin-nostril nose cones to make them look a little exotic and more attractive to race organizers, the shape having been sketched by Tanner himself, who in turn copied it from the stillborn Sacha-Gordine mid-engined Grand Prix car of 1953.... On Fantuzzi's suggestion it was adopted by Chiti's design team."

    Ferrari Tests; Modena Aerautodromo, April 1961. The first track test of the new Ferrari 156/F1 car with 120° V-6 motor which offered a lower center of gravity. The entire Ferrari cast of characters is in attendance. Bending over the front of the car, checking the water level, is Cav. Luigi Bazzi, Ferrari's senior technician of that time; the rather large man just to Bazzi's left is Medardo Fantuzzi who made the bodies for the F1 cars; to Fantuzzi's left in the dark suit and with his hand in the cockpit of the car is Ing. Carlo Chiti, who designed this new F1 car; in the car, ready to go out on test, is the American driver Richie Ginther; behind the car wearing the hat is Romulo Tavoni, manager of the Ferrari racing team; and leaning against the boss's 250GT are team leader and world champion to be Phil Hill and the boss himself, Enzo Ferrari.

    4105GT, in better days. Sadly, it's no longer in one piece and the remains are unrecognizable as a GTE.
