I bought a used Martinelli Quinta Strada- very similar to the Atlantico- but I'm always having trouble folding it? I can't seem to get the locks to latch properly and I have to do everything manually. Should I lay it flat or try to latch it while it's upright? I'm also having trouble with seat- not sure how to recline it???? I would SO appreciate any advice at all- thanks!
Different brand of equipments have user fecilities designed differently therefore it is recommended that you may go through the user guide of the equipment and try out the procedures a couple of times.If still find difficulty you may consult the nearest supplier or brand store for a demo.

Not sure where you are, friend, but my data book tells me the Fiat Strada was produced in the 1980's and there wasn't a 1.2 model, a 1.1 and a 1.3 is what appears in the book.
I remember the car quite well as I worked on a few, typically the car was short-lived due to the severe rate of body corrosion.
If your car is a locally made under licence in the way of many of the eastern bloc Fiats, you will need to obtain technical information locally as in those circumstances made under licence cars rarely used the original engines.
It is also possible your car is not a Strada at all but maybe something like a Fiat Bravo that is locally named a Strada because another manufacturer is already using the Bravo name or perhaps the original name clashed with a slightly distasteful product. The Strada was originally the Ritmo but had to be named Strada in the USA due to a similar sounding brand of sanitary towels.
Although I cannot locate the instructions in an electronic format, looking at the image I would suggest that it may be the following:
Down the right-hand back leg of the stroller, there is a horizontal peg sticking out, push this down with your foot, this will then allow the pram to be pushed forward (away from you) and then folded. You should have a locking device on this to keep it closed. If the locking device is on now (an it's already folded) don't force it as you will break it.
I would ALWAYS recommend that you contact the supplier for advise also.
If you go to a local baby shop and ask them to take a look this will help, although I seem to remember that this folds and opens very similar to the Maclaren Techno XT.
To fold the Pliko, first the both handles have to be pulled out. To do it, grab the plastic (1) which is just under the handle (with a little hook on it), and pull it upwards. Pull the whole handle upwards, so it gets out of the catch situated near the front wheel (2). Do the same with the other handle (maybe it is possible to do it with both at once - I'm not sure yet). And then lift the back handle (3) (between the rear wheels) up, folding the pushchair. To lock it folded, you have to use the same catches, which had to be released earlier, to hold the handles - but this time they catch the handles somewhere in the middle (4).
