Product description

The book that will inspire the Apple tv series ‘FERRARI’, screenplayed by Steven Knight and produced by Oscar winner PAOLO SORRENTINO!*

A work that redefines the life of Enzo Ferrari, a 20th century giant, one of the most multi-faceted, complex, tormented and imposing figures in Italian history.
The first monumental English edition of this unique book – 984 pages, published by David Bull in 2018 under the title “Enzo Ferrari. Power, politics and the making of an automotive empire” – has been defined by the New York Times as “the definitive biography of one of the giants of the automotive world”. It was a finalist for the “Motoring Book of the Year Award” promoted by the British Royal Automobile Club that same year, while the previous year the original Italian edition “Ferrari Rex” published by Giorgio Nada Editore got the 2017 “Selezione Bancarella Sport” Prize.
This new and shortened (576 pages), text only version is now being published by Giorgio Nada Editore, rendering accessible to an even broader audience the personal, corporate and sporting aspects of a man who really did write chapters of automotive history on his way to becoming one of the best-known and most charismatic figures of the past century.


Luca Dal Monte was born in Cremona in 1963. His books have been translated and read throughout the world. In its first Italian edition (entitled Ferrari Rex) the book got the “Selezione Bancarella Sport Prize” and was a finalist for the “Motoring Book of the Year Award” promoted by the British Royal Automobile Club. The New York Times has reccomended it as “the definitive biography of one of the giants of the automotive world”. He is the author of numerous and successful non-fiction works including La Congiura degli Innocenti (Giorgio Nada Editore), published by Giorgio Nada Editore, a book examining the complex relationship between Bernie Ecclestone and Alfa Romeo in the second half of the 1970s. With regard to his fiction writing, he had also published a novel entitled “La Scuderia” and a collection of short stories, Belli e dannati. Vivere e morire nella Formula 1 degli anni 70 (Giorgio Nada Editore). He was head of communications for Ferrari in the United States and Canada and for Maserati S.p.A Italia.
