Son of Turin body stylist Giovanni Farina, who was the brother of the celebrated “Pinin”, Giuseppe Farina – alias Nino – (1906-1966) is one of the Italian great racing drivers of the past. His fast driving and elegant but still aggressive style came to light in the Thirties with Alfa Romeo at national and international levels and earned him the esteem of Tazio Nuvolari, who considered him his best “student”. After the long years of the Second World War, Farina returned to motor racing and won at the wheel of Alfa Romeos, Maseratis and Ferraris. Among his many successes, winning the first Formula One World Championship for drivers in 1950 driving an Alfa stands out. This book is the ninth in the “Racing Lives” series and is illustrated with spectacular, rare and unique pictures, the result of research carried out throughout the world.

AUTOMOBILI DEL MARE/RACING CARS OF THE SEAS. Cantiere navale San Marco 1953-1975

Between 1954 to 1975, the Milan-based San Marco boatyard wrote some of the most interesting pages in the post-war history of powerboating. San Marco is the only yard that has extensively used Italian car engines for both its racing and production boats, including those of Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Fiat and Abarth.The yard produced such models as the 600 Del Mare, Giulietta del Mare, Appia; all of them fast and prestigious wooden runabouts of elegant lines and refined details. Like a fashion designer or a famous Italian coachbuilder, for over 20 years Oscar Scarpa, founder of the yard, promoted a tradition of excellence, building with his son Sandro around 600 exclusive boats, each with unique specifications, either technical or aesthetic and beautifully finished. The San Marco boatyard has also enjoyed a successful racing career, with more than 30 world speed records and hundreds of victories to its credit at the highest competitive level, often with Oscar Scarpa in the driver’s seat. The book is a tribute to the San Marco boatyard’s unique contribution to the world of speed boats and cars and reviews its full history. The work is illustrated with a remarkable collection of hundreds of unpublished archival documents and photographs as well as detailed information, such as its extensive production and racing records.
