ALFA ROMEO IL LIBRO UFFICIALE - Edizione del Centenario

It was on 24 June 1910 when Milan ‘officialised’ the birth of Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili or A.L.F.A. About 10 years later, that acronym was completed by the surname of Nicola Romeo, an able businessman of Neapolitan origin, who had meanwhile taken over the reins of the company. One hundred years separate us from that historic event, during which Alfa Romeo wrote a chapter of extraordinary importance in the technical and sporting history of the Italian car but, more in general, has left its indelible mark on the culture and evolution of trends in Italy. It is, therefore, a duty to celebrate an event of such significance with a work of absolute prestige. To commemorate the 100 years of a marque that has become synonymous with legend many names have been brought together: names of important journalists of the sector and not only in that area; others have personally lived the Alfa Romeo experience. They have all been given the task of bringing alive once more the fascinating story of men and cars, availing themselves of the invaluable historical material from the Alfa Romeo Documentation Centre, but also through a series of pictures of great fascination and evocative power taken for the occasion on photographic sets prepared ad hoc. Protagonists: the cars that best represent the centenarian.

TARGA FLORIO UN’EPOPEA DEL NOVECENTO - Il libro ufficiale del centenario Ed. De Luxe/De-Luxe ed.

A high-quality, limited "Anniversary DeLuxe" edition with slipcase.
Many years ago in Sicily, the legend of the “Coppa Florio” and “Targa Florio” road races became one of the most emotive and prestigious expressions in world motor racing, second only to the mythical Mille Miglia. “Coppa Florio” began in 1905 while “Targa Florio” in 1906, at the dawn of motoring civilisation and evolved over the years, hand-in-hand with the ever growing popularity of the car itself. The narrow and tortuous roads of the Sicilian mountains were testimony to the feats of Fiat, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Lancia, Ferrari and Porsche: manufacturers who alternated year after year at the top of the final classification of one of the toughest races in history, a race rich in allure and an ever present peril. On the occasion of the Targa Florio Centenary the book retraces this charming epics thanks to a vivid text and hundred of pictures, many of them unpublished. The work is complemented by a rich appendix (150 pages) reporting the complete results of all the Coppa and Targa Florio editions.

ALLA DESTRA DEL DRAKE Ed. rilegata/Hardbound ed.

For 30 years Franco Gozzi worked side by side with Enzo Ferrari, first as a press officer and then as team manager, becoming much more than just an advisor and confidant. In all those years spent with the complex yet charismatic personality that was Enzo Ferrari, Gozzi was a privileged witness to events, anecdotes, motor sport triumphs and bitter defeats, not only concerning the Maranello company but also the world of motor sport itself. The crystal clear recollections of the Commendatore’s right hand man are used to reconstruct this long and fascinating story of happenings and, more than anything else, of the drivers - from Alberto Ascari to Lorenzo Bandini, Gilles Villeneuve to Michael Schumacher - as well as wealthy customers and show business personalities. All of them come alive again in this authoritative and compelling book illustrated with a vast collection of pictures and documents, many of them previously unpublished.

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.
