The Official Book Centenary - To pay due tribute to such a significant event – and not only in automobile history – is a unique and exclusive book of which only 999 copies have been printed. This official book prepared in collaboration with Alfa Romeo and destined to celebrate this historic event, is an ambitious project especially due to its contents and illustrations, all unpublished and which come from the priceless Arese archives. To retell this long and distinguished history, which has certainly written a chapter of extraordinary importance in the technical and sporting annals of the Italian car but, more in general, has left its indelible mark on the culture and in the evolution of Italian trends, some of the most important names in motoring and motor sport journalism have contributed, as have men who lived the Alfa Romeo experience in person. People who have been entrusted with the task of recounting a century of history, both through technical evolution of the principal road cars, the many significant concept cars of no less importance built over the years by the major body stylists, but also through the long and glorious sporting era that has seen the unforgettable cars of Alfa Romeo win in all four corners of the world and in the most diverse championships. This official Alfa Romeo centenary book is a work of indisputable prestige, a ‘must have’ for all enthusiasts and students of the Alfa Romeo marque. The authors: Roberto Boccafogli: TV journalist and car enthusiast; Cesare De Agostini: one of the Italian best-known motor-racing writer; Luca Goldoni: writer, journalist and car enthusiast; Luciano Greggio: authoritative name in specialised journalism and great expert of automobile history; Alessandro Piccone: mechanical engineer, for years head of Alfa Romeo “Engine Technology Division” and of the Fiat Group afterwards; Lorenzo Ramaciotti: responsible for the “Style” of the entire Fiat Group Automobiles.
