This work is the culmination of hundreds of interviews with Italy’s Sports & GT car historic figures, and molds their insights into a strong narrative that takes you behind-the-scenes to learn who these people were, and why they did what they did when they did it. Complementing their stories is luscious contemporary color photography (a number of the shoots were done specifically for this book) and evocative period images and sales literature. “This book truly captures the atmosphere of Italy and its sports car industry,” is how Carlo Felice Bianchi Anderloni, the man behind Ferrari’s famed 166 Barchetta and Alfa’s Disco Volante, described the manuscript after proofreading it. “(The) words beautifully illuminate the trials and tribulations that myself and many of my colleagues experienced when designing, constructing and producing these exciting machines.”
