Over 100 years ago, a marque that stood out immediately in a young automobile panorama was founded on the outskirts of Milan – Alfa Romeo. A name that became synonymous with cars, so important has its presence been both industrially and in motor sport. In this long period of time, the celebrated Italian manufacturer has brought cars to life that have become part of history, like the 1900, Giulietta, Giulia and Alfetta. At the same time, Alfa Romeo has been an outstanding motor sport competitor, winning all of the most significant races and titles, among them the Mille Miglia, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Tourist Trophy and the Formula 1 World Championship.  This book, which first appeared in 2010 when Alfa Romeo (under the title 'Alfa Romeo 1910-2010') celebrated its first century, was written by the late Maurizio Tabucchi, an expert on the history of the marque, who died a few years ago. Today, his work has been updated to include all the latest models – the Giulietta, Mito and Giulia, chronologically the latest to have been launched with the name it shares with one of the great Alfa Romeo classics.

TUTTO ALFA ROMEO

The story of Alfa Romeo, the prestigious Italian marque which has created some of the most memorable cars of all time during its 100 year-plus history, is told by specification after specification in a ‘virtual gallery’ of many of the models produced by the company, both road-goers and racers. The 1750 GS of the 1930s, the 8C 2900 B, the Giulietta, the Giulia, the 33s, the Alfettas right up to the most modern 8C Competizione are just some of the cars that find a place in this long catalogue in which the illustrations of Michele Leonello, the authoritative car designer, come together with the words of Lorenzo Ardizio, the expert on the history of Alfa Romeo.

DESTRA3 LUNGA CHIUDE Quando i rally avevano un’anima

The rallies of yesterday, the ones that spanned 30 years from 1960 to 1990 were not just simple races, but a concentration of adventure. They were excessively long, tortured that took place over of roads with impossible surfaces, the drivers always prepared for the worst. Day and night, searing sun or pouring craven rain, then snow and fog, dust and ice. The drivers had to compete in cars that broke, fitted with tyres unable to withstand the harshness of it all. A perfect contest to generate an incredible story. So here is a collection of various facts, many of which it has been difficult to track down, which could help those who were there at the time to remember, and those who weren’t to get to know. Page after page review an unrepeatable era in which there were not just the winners, but the surrounding companies, defeats born with the same dignity as victories, painful team orders and those who made generous gestures in renouncing a win to help a colleague in difficulty.
Fifty incredible stories that bring out once more recollections the memory cannot cancel. Times when rallies really were rallies. Things that happened that really were over the top, sometimes a good situation because, although they seem like romanticised tales, they were no more than the rule in those days. Carlo Cavicchi competed in just such rallies and wrote about them in the Italian motor sport magazines Autosprint and Rombo. Now, he has reopened his notebook and extracted the best of the best from it. Some stories really do induce dreams, told as they are by Jean-Claude Andruet, Attilio Bettega, Dario Cerrato, Hannu Mikkola, Raffaele Pinto, Tony Fassina, Luciano Trombottto, Maurizio Verini, Mauro Pregliasco, Sergio Barbasio and Amilcare Ballestreri. All rally drivers who really did write the history of their period. And all of them told by a great professional of the sport, Carlo Cavacchi.

The people the author has selected as the stars of this book are:

Rauno Aaltonen, Erik Carlsson, Pentti Airikkala, Markku Alén, Jean-Claude Andruet, Fulvio Bacchelli, Amilcare Ballestrieri, Sergio Barbasio, Attilio Bettega, Miki Biasion, Marc Birley, Tony Carello, Dario Cerrato, Jim Clark, Bernard Darniche, Per Eklund, Tony Fall, Guy Fréquelin, Kyösti Hämäläinen, Paddy Hopkirk, Harry Källström, Simo Lampinen, Bosse Ljungfeldt, Timo Makinen, Shekhar Mehta, Hannu Mikkola, Michèle Mouton, Sandro Munari, Federico Ormezzano, Alcide Paganelli, Raffaele Pinto, Fabrizia Pons, Mauro Pregliasco, Carlos Reutemann, Walter Röhrl, Carlos Sainz, Joginder Singh, Jean-Luc Thérier, Pauli Toivonen, “Tony” (Tony Fassina)
