This volume is a significant work recounting two realities - the Monza Autodromo and Formula 1 - that have always been inextricably linked by a single celebrated event: the Italian Grand Prix in the Royal Park of Monza. This long and fascinating story of drivers and races since 1948, of tears and joy, is told in a rich volume presenting through rare and spectacular photos both the racing and the human side that has always been such a feature of the Italian Grand Prix. Featuring in the first part of the book are the over 60 editions of the race while in the second the story is developed with a series of portraits of those drivers whose name has become associated with the history of the Autodromo and those teams that have written unforgettable chapters in the history of motorsport on the Monza track.Adding further depth are chapters on the boundless passion of the Monza crowd - such a major part of the history of this race - the evolution of the circuit, the Autodromo as a film set or a privileged setting for long test sessions or an incomparable stage for the many VIPs who have always populated the paddock and pits.Author Enrico Mapelli, size 28x30 cm, 364 pages, more than 900 color and b/w photos.
