Legendary Italian Cars

Author(s): Enzo Rizzo

No Category

Italians have been the pioneers in the design and manufacture of the car, and Italy has written many important pages in the history of the 'horseless carriage'. And if it's true that the car was born, developed and grew to maturity elsewhere, it's also true that the entire world recognizes the great contribution Italians have made to design, style, elegance, and technological innovations. This volume takes the reader on a journey through more than 150 years of the Italian car - in the models that have marked its history. The narrative ranges from the earliest internal combustion engine to the small Rebus built by Carlo Menon in the late 19th century to the first races, and then moves onto the First World War, to the fabulous Twenties with four-wheel masterpieces that the whole world envied and asked for: then, after World War II, the book addresses post-war reconstruction, the economic boom, mass motorisation and moves on up to today's many challenges.
This handsome volume includes everything marked by a unique, non-reproducible, made-in-Italy label and distinguished by the creativity that gave life to unforgettable models that made motor sports history and shaped the nation's social life and aspirations.
