Vittorio Jano, the famous automobile designer, is the man who more than any other helped Alfa Romeo in creating high performance cars and marked its glorious future. Called from Alfa Romeo in 1923 contributed to the design of cars that have drawn an indelible groove in automotive history. Among these, its realization perhaps more important, for the industrial development of the brand, is the 6C 1500, a fast car and light that showed the ability to mass-produce efficient vehicles with engines of high performance and small displacement.
If this brand, which has become legend, still run the streets of the world, is due to the heart and to the insights of Vittorio Jano and collobaration of those, like him, maybe unacknowledged, participated in making concrete many technical assumptions. A legend claims made ??for unforgettable sport cars that represent a limit hardly surmountable in the automotive technology. Without Jano and his team there would be no the type P2 Grand Prix, neither the first World Championship and probably even many of the later, but there would have not been Alfa cars as we know today. This large volume includes a general catalog of all the cars designed by Vittorio Jano until 1938, the year of his removal from Alfa Romeo, enhanced by beautiful archive images, reproductions of original drawings and technical data sheets. The book opens with an essay by Luigi Fusi, who has worked with Jano as designer and planner and one of the greatest historians of Alfa Romeo,followed by an interview released in the summer of 1964 to Vittorio Jano, by the American journalist and historian Griffith Borgeson.
