Alfa Romeo and the Mille Miglia are two names packed with fascination and legend, both for the prestige of the Brescian race and the epic feats of the drivers and the Portello-built cars on the roads of the unforgettable Italian marathon. No other marque can boast of competing in such a large number Mille Miglias, and especially not of such a series of successful results “collected” by Alfa Romeo in the celebrated Race of the Red Arrow. To tell this long and spectacular story of road racing at its best is the authoritative pen of Andrea Curami, who relives the long and distinguished career of Alfa Romeo at the Mille Miglia, all illustrated by rare archive pictures.
Andrea Curami is a recognized authority on historic vehicle restoration and conservation. He has held technical and scientific positions within the Italian historic Automotoclub (ASI) , technical cordinator for the Mille Miglia Race and member of the Technical Commission of the F.I.V.A.
