ASCARI UN MITO ITALIANO

May 2005 marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Alberto Ascari and July the 80th year since his father, Antonio, lost his life in a fatal accident. Alberto was the last Italian driver to win the Formula One World Championship, which he did in 1952 and repeated the feat a year later, driving Ferraris. A tragic yet banal accident at Monza on 26 May 1955 brought Alberto Ascari’s life and career to an abrupt halt, during which he had first raced motorcycles and then cars for Maserati, Ferrari and, finally, Lancia. His father Antonio was a motor racing ace and a star of the 1924 and 1925 seasons at the wheel of the Alfa Romeo P2, in which he died at Montlhéry during the Grand Prix of France Cesare De Agostini, who had already written a biography on the two Ascaris back in 1968, has reconstructed their dramatic story with the help of new and much deeper research and gives us another, particularly absorbing portrait of the two personalities. Illustration research, which produced over 200 pictures and documents, is by Gianni Cancellieri, as is the meticulously assembled list of the two champions’ racing results. Cancellieri has also compiled a similar list of the motor racing results for the book recorded by Alberto’s son and Antonio’s grandson, Tonino. He competed in a number of minor races in the Sixties with some creditable placings, before retiring from the sport in which his father and grandfather were such stars.

AYRTON SENNA IMMAGINI DI UNA VITA / A LIFE IN PICTURES

Ayrton Senna is still the best loved of Formula 1 champions. Now that 20 years have passed since his tragic fatal accident at Imola on 1 May 1994, it is time to rediscover who and what Ayrton really was. An emotional yet rigorous journey that takes place along the two lines of visual testimony and in-depth intimacy. The stars of this book are the photographs: hundreds of shots and all of them in colour, which will ensure the reader relives the unrepeatable career of this great champion, from his humble beginnings in karts to his lightening experiences in lesser formulae in Britain, through to his rapid move to Formula 1. First with Toleman, then Lotus, with whom he won his first Grand Prix. But the definitive consecration of Ayrton took place at McLaren, where he won three F1 World Championships between 1988 and 1993 but, more than anything else, pulled off a series of ventures that are the stuff of legends.all bound together with new revelations, anecdotes, confidences and stories of a life that was lived, the gift of those who knew him well. To make the heart beat a little faster within those who have not forgotten and to have a vibrant and different account of the man, a new view to bring back the brilliance of an old sentiment, able to chrystallise itself in the pictures and between the lines of this book.
