20 It was wet and cold, but the Ferraris shone
1991 Mille Miglia

It rained during this year's Mille Miglia, and there was no escaping it. A weather front was stalled over central Europe and most of central and southern Europe were shrouded in cold and wet for a good week before and after the event. Most everyone's efforts were directed at keeping warm and ry and keeping the moisture out of the electrics.

24 Una Berlinetta Speciale, The Dubonnet Ferrari
A look at 250 GT, s/n 0393 GT

Berlinetta. A word bandied about somewhat more casually today than it was in the 1950s. In the Italian, a berlinetta is a lightweight, agile, fast, two passenger, fixed roof gran turismo automobile. But try to find a precise definition of the word in anything but the most detailed Italian dictionary, and you'll come up empty handed.

30 Ferrari by Zagato! The Duo reunited.
A 348 receives a special "laying on of hands"

One of the most famous "atelier" that is still alive today is Zagato, a small company which has kept working in the same style of the "good old days" when they customized car for Maranello. At this time, Zagato decided to "soup-up" a Ferrari 348, in a matter that only a craftsman can.

32 Peter Collins and the Myth of Monza!
What really happened that day between Collins and Fangio in 1956

The romance of the road, the motorcar and colorful individuals runs throughout Ferrari history. Ferrari's life, and the lives of those who came under his direction, comprise the material for a thousand novels. Therefore, it is frustrating for the serious historian to see facts twisted by lazy and uninformed journalists intent on making a good story by repeating the same misinformation over and over again.
