Today, perhaps, few automobile history lovers know what Cisitalia was. It was an almost ’family-owned’ marque which, immediately after the Second World War, was able to produce masterpieces like the 202 coupé bodied by Pininfarina, as a result of the inspiration and courage of Piero Dusio, a wealthy Piedmont industrialist. And it is a car that has been on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in the past. That’s not all, because the small manufacturer also produced a series of racing single-seaters, the agile and fast D46, as they did the Grand Prix, designed by none other than Ferdinand Porsche. The book is written by Nino Balestra, who is also the author of other volumes on the history Cisitalia with the opportunity of covering the entire production of the marque, from 1946 to the mid-60s. Precious archive pictures -some unpublished – complete the work, which closes with the meticulous restoration of a 202 Cabriolet, which has been brought back to its original splendour.

DENTRO L'OSCA

An extraordinary collection of images largely unpublished by Walter Breveglieri, is the axis carrying a rather unconventional narrative of the OSCA, the car brand of the Maserati brothers. Easy-going anecdotes, collected by the well-known Italian journalist, give a glimpse of an unrepeatable era. The genius, the imagination, the extravagances of the three brothers Bindo, Ernesto and Ettore Maserati, united to the value and the eccentricities of the pilots brought the OSCA among the queens of the International automotive panorama.
