CISITALIA: UNA STORIA DI CORAGGIO E PASSIONE

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 Precious archive pictures -some unpublished – complete the work, which closes with the meticulous restoration of a 202 Cabriolet, which has been brought back to its original splendour.

AUTOBIANCHI PRIMULA e A111

Finally following up on a project he had had in mind from the time of the Topolino, in the autumn of 1964 engineer Dante Giacosa was able to launch the first front wheel drive Fiat. In reality it wasn’t a Fiat at all but an Autobianchi, the satellite marque based at Desio. As well as for its “all up front”, the Primula also stood out due to another courageous and unusual decision: the 3-door body with a hatchback. Unveiled to a rather cool reception from the marketplace, in part for its not exactly competitive price, the Primula declined into a series of almost infinite bodies: 2, 4 and 5 door and a coupé. In the mechanical area, the old engine was derived from the 1100, but that was replaced by a new power unit from the Fiat 124. A year later, the car joined the A111 and then replaced it, with the mechanics of the Primula and a much more conventional, three-volume body. It was a saloon more sought after than the Fiat models of the day, but it left the market in the autumn of 1972. Unpublished colour pictures, detailed technical specifications and a section on restoration tell of the genesis and evolution of these two unique Autobianchis, not expressly conceived and designed as utilities.

ALFA ROMEO TZ-TZ2 Nate per vincere

Having left motor racing in the early ‘50s – at least officially – Alfa Romeo returned to the sport once again at the start of the following decade due to the commitment and enthusiasm of Autodelta. This Alfa offshoot distinguished itself by preparing and racing about 30 of the manufacturer’s different cars that really did make history. Among them, the Giulia TZ holds a place at the head of the crowd. It had a 1.5-litre, 113 hp engine from the Giulia SS, front and rear suspension of modern conception, disc brakes and an especially bold body shaped by Zagato on a modern tubular chassis. Those were the strong points of this car, which scored results of absolute prestige in its brief career at Sebring, in the Targa Florio, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Tour de France. Vito Witting da Prato, already the author of a meticulously written book on the Alfa Romeo SZ, covers the winning, human, technical and sporting factors of this unforgettable car in a monumental work. A book which, to the precise text and painstaking historical reconstruction, has been added illustrations of previously unpublished pictures and technical designs by Autodelta, plus all the results of the “Tubular Zagato” from 1963 to 1968.

FORMULA 1 & MONZA IMMAGINI DI UNA CORSA/A RACE IN PICTURES - COPIA FIRMATA DALL’AUTORE! / SIGNED COPY BY THE AUTHOR!

Finally available, “Formula 1 & Monza” is a significant work recounting two realities – the Monza Autodromo and Formula 1 – that have always been inextricably linked by a single celebrated event: the Italian Grand Prix. From back in 1948, when the World Championship had yet to be born, Monza was welcoming cars from the “blue ribbon formula” to the track winding through the Royal Park. This long and fascinating story of drivers and races, of tears and joy, is told in a rich volume presenting through rare and spectacular photos both the racing and the human side that has always been such a feature of the Italian Grand Prix. Featuring in the first part of the book are the over 60 editions of the race while in the second the story is developed with a series of portraits of those drivers whose name has become associated with the history of the Autodromo and those teams that have written unforgettable chapters in the history of motorsport on the Monza track. Adding further depth are chapters on the boundless passion of the Monza crowd – such a major part of the history of this race - the evolution of the circuit, the Autodromo as a film set or a privileged setting for long test sessions or an incomparable stage for the many VIPs who have always populated the paddock and pits. Tracing the history of the one and only authentic “Temple of Speed” is Enrico Mapelli, a Monza journalist and a great expert in the history of the Autodromo past and present. His story is illustrated with around 900 colour and black and white photographs, many previously unpublished and most drawn from the publisher’s own archives (specifically the collections of the photographers Erminio Ferranti, Danilo Recalcati and Franco Villani) or from other professional photographers who gravitated around the circuit.

DUCATI LA ROSSA DELLE DUE RUOTE - Nuova edizione aggiornata 2016

Ducati was founded in 1926 to produce electronic components and did not become a motorcycle manufacturer until after the Second World War, when it was placed under state control almost by chance. But today, it is a marque known throughout the world and lives as much in the marketplace as it does in the hearts of enthusiasts as the icon of the ‘made in Italy’ motorcycle. The story of the company – famous for its refined desmodronic valve gear – is peppered with legendary models, extraordinary sporting successes and great champions, but also by financial crises and different owners. But nothing has been able to dim the fascination, vocation for excellence and the racing success of the Borgo Panigale company. This is a book that tells both the sporting and industrial story of the company, a volume that gives an overall view – bulging with information and pictures – of the Ducati branded products. A rich and conclusive catalogue through which parade the entire production of the company, model-by-model.

FORMULA 1 2015/2016 ANALISI TECNICA

As with previous years, 2015 was one in which Mercedes-Benz dominated both the drivers’ and constructors’ championships. The German manufacturer confirmed the technical advantage it had derived from the introduction of the revolutionary power unit, which first appeared in 2014. In place of Red Bull, which fell into disgrace after a media conflict with engine supplier Renault, it was Ferrari that attempted to stand up to the Silver Arrows. Side issues were the stories of a Williams wanting to come back and battle for the title; McLaren with a new but not very effective Honda engine, which touched the lowest point in the Japanese manufacturer’s long history in F1; and the other leading teams of a season that ended with the official announcement of Renault’s return, having acquired Lotus. Offering a precise analysis of this latest F1 championship, especially from the technical point of view, there is once again Giorgio Piola. Hundreds of all-colour illustrations document the development of the various cars throughout the Formula 1 World Championship, and offer – as always – a wealth of information anticipating the 2016 season
