Reprint of the prestigious volume published on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the House of Maranello and sponsored by Ferrari itself. The 408 pages of this imposing work are subdivided in two large sections: the technical part and the historical one. The technical part, under the title "Le idee - The ideas", is by Karl Ludvigsen and gives a long excursus on the technological innovations introduced by Ferrari from 1947 up to now. The historical part, titled "Le opere e i giorni - The works and the days" is by Gianni Cancellieri and has been divided into chapters, one for each decade, recalling Ferrari’s history from the industrial, sport and human viewpoint. For the first time, in these pages the drivers talk about Ferrari and not vice versa, as it was in the past for the books written by Enzo Ferrari. The appendix gives the catalogue and the silhouettes of all the cars realized by Ferrari, the list of the men that in these fifty years have contributed in building the myth of the Prancing Horse (presidents, technicians, teams, drivers and so on), and the sports palmares.
