MILLE MIGLIA 2013

In addition, the volume offers a retrospective of the victories of Tazio Nuvolari and Giannino Marzotto in the Mille Miglia editions that occur in 2013, after eighty and sixty years, in 1933 and 1953, with an extensive authentic photo gallery. The issue, in a joint-venture between 1000 Miglia Srl and Renografica, publisher from Bologna, has been created with style and care by genuine enthusiasts, worthy of those protagonists of the Mille Miglia: besides the graphics recalling a Futurist style, pages are of different paper, "uncoated” for the historical part and glossy for the modern section. The editorial part is edited by Paolo Mazzetti, already author of several publications on the Red Arrow, former Director of the Mille Miglia Museum and current Executive Secretary of the Mille Miglia Club.

MERCEDES-BENZ & MILLE MIGLIA

Two key players in the history of motor sport first came together in the early Thirties and continued their racing association until 1957. The cars from Stuttgart competed in the Brescian classic from 1930 to 1957 and won the race twice. The first time was in 1931, when Rudolf Caracciola drove the huge SSK to victory: the second was in 1955 with the 300 SLR, one of the famous Silver Arrows, crewed by Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson, This fascinating story, which not only deals with the sport itself but also the difficult relationship that existed between Italy and Germany throughout the Second World War, is illustrated with exceptional photographs and other material, most of it provided by Mercedes-Benz itself and never previously seen.

MILLE MIGLIA A JOURNEY IN PHOTOGRAPHY

This series of images is the fruit of 1.600 km, strapped in the back of an estate car, eye glued to the viewfinder to best capture the sensation of movement and speed. In these breathtaking vews, both space and time are traversed by magical moving machines; rays of light or phantom shadows on the photographer’s film.

MILLE MIGLIA IMMAGINI DI UNA CORSA/ A RACE IN PICTURES

For 30 years from 1927 until 1957 the real Mille Miglia was the “race of excellence”. A unique event of over 1,600 kilometres across Italy, the stars of which were some of the world’s greatest car manufacturers, among them Alfa Romeo, Mercedes-Benz, Maserati, Ferrari, Jaguar and Aston Martin. And their cars were driven, naturally, by some of the equally great champions of the time, like Tazio Nuvolari, Achille Varzi, through to Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss as well as Alberto Ascari, Clemente Biondetti, Piero Taruffi and many others. Count Giannino Marzotto won the race twice in Ferraris in 1950 and 1953 and said the Mille Miglia was “a synthesis of dynamism, freedom, challenge, courage and calculation”. The story, or better the stories, of that legendary race live again in this book, which tells the tales of the classic “Bresciana”, first of all through hundreds of pictures, most of them unpublished and coming from the Novafoto-Sorlini Archive, an important collection featuring the shots taken by the official race photographer Alberto Sorlini, between 1947 and 1957. The text has been written by Leonardo Acerbi, who also wrote “Mille Miglia Story 1927-1957”.

PORSCHE & MILLE MIGLIA

Porsche and the Mille Miglia. Two legends, two names from the history of motor racing that came together from 1952 to 1957, the years in which the Stuttgart manufacturer competed in the classic Brescian marathon, first with the 356 A and B models and, in a second phase, with the 550 RS barchette. The most prestigious drivers of their time took to the narrow roads of Sicily in those cars, often winning their class or category: from Hans Herrmann to Giovanni Bracco, Wolfgang von Trips to Umberto Maglioli. This book covers their brief but intense and fascinating story, which has never been told before with such precise text in reconstructing the facts, and which is supported by hundreds of unpublished photographs provided by Porsche themselves, plus rare documents and designs of the period.

MILLE MIGLIA 1957 LE CLASSI MINORI/THE MINOR CLASSES - COPIA FIRMATA DALL’AUTORE! / SIGNED COPY BY THE AUTHOR!

The 24th and final edition of the Mille Miglia, held on the 11th and 12th of May 1957, has passed into history above all due to the tragic circumstances of the accident involving de Portago and Nelson’s Ferrari 335S, which crashed in the latter stages of the race near Mantua. It was however, also a race characterised by a bitter struggle amongst the Maranello marque’s drivers, a duel that never happened with Moss and Jenkinson’s Maserati 450S and the last career win for Piero Taruffi. Behind all this, there was also another story, one equally as fascinating and rich in incident, that of the crews racing in the minor classes: from the Tuned Touring and the 750 classes to the Gran Turismo and Sport 750 and 1000 categories. This previously neglected story of "little" cars and almost unknown drivers is recounted by Carlo Dolcini, a painstaking and accurate historian, who has reconstructed in engrossing detail the “minor” episodes of those days, drawing on a wealth of photographic documentation.
