To mark the 70th anniversary of Ferrari, this book does not wish to be a new story about the prestigious marque, but a tribute to the Prancing Horse and its golden years, when it was led by just one man: Enzo Ferrari. From the opportunity of publishing absolutely new photographic material recently acquired by Giorgio Nada Editore, comes "Ferrari The Golden Years". It is a book illustrated by the pictures taken by one of the most observant photographers of Ferrari, Franco Villani. With powerful and evocative photographs, the work covers the era of the man and his unrepeatable creation, from the end of the '40s - when the 125 first rolled into the factory's courtyard - to the '80s, when the Commendatore died on a midsummer's morning.

When one thinks of the Mille Miglia, the most celebrated race in the world that took place between 1927 and 1957, the mind certainly goes back to OM, Bugatti, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Lancia as well, of course, as the ultra-victorious Alfa Romeo and Ferrari, the greatest car manufacturers that have competed in the Italian marathon. But the memorable history of the great race is made up mainly of men: drivers, co-drivers, mechanics, technical and sports directors, organisers as well as film and show business personalities plus, naturally, an immense public following. All of those faces have names, some well-known others less so, and stories, some well worth telling others less so. The book brings together a series of portraits in alphabetical order that make up the fragments of this historic sports and cultural mosaic that was the Mille Miglia, once again told by Leonardo Acerbi from his deep knowledge of the Brescia-based race.

Following Evro Publishing's acclaimed photo memoirs of John Surtees and Stirling Moss, the appealing format of these books - wonderful photos with insightful narrative - is applied to the greatest figure in 20th century motor racing. In the aftermath of the Second World War, Enzo Ferrari went into motor racing with magnificent V12-engined cars and very quickly achieved unparalleled success in Formula 1 and sports cars, and built magnificent road cars too. In this book, published on the 70th anniversary of the first Ferrari car, expert author Doug Nye explores the life and achievements of this enigmatic man through a splendid array of photos, many not previously published, and accompanying commentary. Early years: aftermath of the Great War, budding racing driver and Alfa Romeo employee, then emerging as shrewd businessman. Scuderia Ferrari: his own team, first racing Alfa Romeos for wealthy clients, then 'quasi-works' cars, achieving considerable success through the 1930s. Second World War: doing well from industrial production of machine tools - and surviving a contract assassination plan. \Rapid emergence of his own Ferrari marque post-war: six consecutive Mille Miglia wins from 1948; first Le Mans win in 1949; double World Champions in 1952-53. \All-round racer: at his autocratic and spectacular best through the pinnacle years in the 1950s and 1960s - then rescue by Fiat from near bankruptcy. Advancing years: racing focuses on Formula 1 and road-car manufacture shifts from exotic boutique production to significant volume. Final years: on top of the world with new models, and even higher personal status as Italian elder statesman and national icon.

A substantial work, providing exceptional insights into Ferrari the man, Ferrari's design, and Ferrari the legend. Ferrari is an extraordinary company that emerged as World War II receded in Italy, combining collegiality, an almost religious dedication, and dictatorship in equal parts. Above all, it was impelled by the remorseless ambition of its founder Enzo Ferrari. Richly illustrated with personal ephemera, technical drawings, master models, and luxurious product shots, this in-depth exploration of Ferrari - the man, company, cars, and clientele – reveals what goes into the making of, many would argue, the world's most desirable car brand.

For the first time, one of the major names in Italian car design tells his story from the beginning; from when he made his first sketches on paper, unbeknown to his parents and not only of cars, to reaching a point at which his name became synonymous with some of the best known and most important cars on the international front. In his 23-year career at Pininfarina, Leonardo Fioravanti, who was first a designer and architect, then managing director and director general of 'Studi & Ricerche' department, created some of the most beautiful Ferraris of all time; they ranged from the 1965 250 LM sports coupe Speciale to the immortal 1968 Daytona through to the 1975 308 GTB and GTS and the 1984 288 GTO, as well as the P5 and P6 of 1968. While continuing his Ferrari essay during his Pininfarina career, Fioravanti also guided the creation of numerous other projects, among them the Dino road car, the 1980 Pinin four-door prototype and went on to the 1984 Testarossa and the 1987 F40. He worked for the Fiat Group from 1988 until 1991, during which time he took on the roles of deputy director general of Ferrari, later became responsible for advanced design CRF and then head of the Fiat Styling Centre. In 1987, he founded Fioravanti srl, an architectural studio, and in 1991 he extended his services to industry, in particular the design of means of transport. Images of an epoch, designs from his own personal archive never previously seen and, above all, a passionate first person account. Those are the key elements of this outstanding book which, through the creations of Leonardo Fioravanti, covers over 50 years of the history of automobile style and culture.
