Many years ago in Sicily, the legend of the “Coppa Florio” and “Targa Florio” road races became one of the most emotive and prestigious expressions in world motor racing, second only to the mythical Mille Miglia. “Coppa Florio” began in 1905 while “Targa Florio” in 1906, at the dawn of motoring civilisation and evolved over the years, hand-in-hand with the ever growing popularity of the car itself. The narrow and tortuous roads of the Sicilian mountains were testimony to the feats of Fiat, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Lancia, Ferrari and Porsche: manufacturers who alternated year after year at the top of the final classification of one of the toughest races in history, a race rich in allure and an ever present peril. On the occasion of the Targa Florio Centenary the book retraces this charming epics thanks to a vivid text and hundred of pictures, many of them unpublished. The work is complemented by a rich appendix (150 pages) reporting the complete results of all the Coppa and Targa Florio editions.

ALLA DESTRA DEL DRAKE Ed. rilegata/Hardbound ed.

For 30 years Franco Gozzi worked side by side with Enzo Ferrari, first as a press officer and then as team manager, becoming much more than just an advisor and confidant. In all those years spent with the complex yet charismatic personality that was Enzo Ferrari, Gozzi was a privileged witness to events, anecdotes, motor sport triumphs and bitter defeats, not only concerning the Maranello company but also the world of motor sport itself. The crystal clear recollections of the Commendatore’s right hand man are used to reconstruct this long and fascinating story of happenings and, more than anything else, of the drivers - from Alberto Ascari to Lorenzo Bandini, Gilles Villeneuve to Michael Schumacher - as well as wealthy customers and show business personalities. All of them come alive again in this authoritative and compelling book illustrated with a vast collection of pictures and documents, many of them previously unpublished.

DALLA 124 ALLA 124 / FROM 124 TO 124

The return of FIAT Abarth 124 Spider has certainly made a mark in many fans of the brand and in some racing drivers who helped to create the myth of the Scorpio’s home. Maurizio Verini is one of them, from start to growth especially in the rally racing terms of Abarth 124, he found the motivation to write a captivating book, not only of memories, but also to scenarios. It’s not about nostalgia, but a link from past to future. When a champion is struck by novelty, that can bring interesting stories, with the adventure testimony of fellow race drivers that Verini lived a protagonist. His racing career is actually heavily marked by Abarth, in a time when racing and especially rallies were strongly developing. With the Fiat Abarth 124 Rally won a European Championship, in a period in which he lived a moment dream, confronting and exceeding his ability at the same level of the best racing drivers in the world. Verini spent many years with Abarth, contributing substantially to the developments that made the car a winning car with three world titles also with other Fiat models. Therefore it’s logical that the pilot, author of this book, welcomed the return to competition with favourable enthusiasm of a car very close to his heart. Since its introduction, the rally Abarth 124 was able to take an innovative passion. In a racing car world often cars are very similar to each other, the modern interpretation of such an icon of the past represents a new way to offer itself in the field in search of a more spectacular dimension.
