The brief, intense and fascinating story of this great driver from Lodi, Italy, narrated with passion and written like a novel, while fully respecting the facts and a sound historical reconstruction.


On behalf of the Italian Defense Ministry, Alfa Romeo produced in 1951 a utility van, designed by Giuseppe Busso and based on the Alfa 1900. The vehicle was offered in two different versions: the "Military" AR 51 and the "Civilian" AR 52, but the model was nicknamed Alfa “Matta” (“krazy” in Italian). The book offers a wide range of informations - technical datas and the sporting history of some units (the car also took part to the 1952 Mille Miglia) - as well as a large amount of illustrations which will be absolutely useful for restoring vintage models.


Bernd Rosemeyer (1909-1938) is certainly one of the greatest drivers ever to compete in Grands Prix. In two-and-a-half years from May 1935 until October 1937 he entered in 33 races, won 10 and came second six times. He always raced the ponderous and difficult rear-engined Auto Union conceived by Ferdinand Porsche, which enabled him to exceed 400 km/h during a record attempt on a public road closed to traffic.Tazio Nuvolari considered the German “my most formidable adversary”. Rosemeyer died in 1938 while trying to break a flying start one kilometre record, which his great rival Rudolf Caracciola had just established in a Mercedes-Benz.Cesare De Agostini is the author of this first biography in the Italian language on this legendary ace, about whom he offers a splendid, rounded portrait, bringing into focus the pleasant personality, carefree attitude and the irresistible ability to always compete at the fastest speed possible on every circuit whatever the weather conditions. The 11th title in the “Racing Lives” series, this book and its collection of exceptional pictures enables the reader to relive the life of one of the most extraordinary champions of all time, who is still admired today by an incredible number of enthusiasts.

Born mid-way through the Sixties, the Alfa Romeo Giulia GT successfully inherited the legacy of the Giulietta Sprint. Until its presentation, the company’s top management at Arese, near Milan, also considered a version suited to racing, which could bring back glorious days gone by. The car became the GTA – the “A” for "alleggerita" or lightened – a car that immediately transformed itself into the one to beat, able to dictate the law on all the circuits of the world and win everything there was to win until the mid-Seventies.That fascinating and unrepeatable story is told by Maurizio Tabucchi, one of the leading Alfa Romeo authorities who, through a precise and thoroughly accurate text, reconstructs the technical and sporting history of this unforgettable Alfa Romeo. The book is illustrated by invaluable and often previously unpublished archive pictures.
