Books - Legendary Italian Cars (Author: Rizzo )

Legendary Italian Cars      (Author: Rizzo )  by Books

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
weight 2.5kg by Enzo Rizzo This large format, lavishly illustrated tome states in its introduction that it covers over 150 years of Italian automobile history, rather odd when we consider that Daimler is credited with inventing the automobile in 1886. Before the spark ignition gasoline engine there were of course steam powered carriages and others than Daimler were working on their own internal combustion engines, in Italy and other countries, and these are the earlier subjects of the first chapter. From these pioneers we move on through the rapid early development of the motor car, often through racing, and on to many of the great cars which we associate with Italy, Lancia, Fiat, Alfa Romeo and of course Ferrari and Maserati. The text is very well written and the story is illustrated with a mix of period photographs, reprints of period advertising and beautiful modern studio shots of restored cars today. It isn't all about the fast and the glorious, Italy has long had a reputation for creating stylish small cars and machines such as the Fiat 500 also feature heavily. The book does jump around a bit chronologically but there is plenty of good info and stunning imagery to enjoy.
