On June 24, 1910, a group of businessmen, headed by Italian aristocrat Ugo Stella, took over the Italian plant of the French car company Societa Italiana Automobili Darracq located in Portello, Italy, just outside Milan. Stella renamed the company Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili, or ALFA. From this day forward, a new class of cars was being produced. Over the years, Alfa Romeo has produced airplane engines, race cars, and family vehicles. This book explores the rich history of these iconic automobiles and how they have impacted the automobile industry.

The fascinating world of Alfa Romeo is recounted in this history of the legendary automaker, while showcasing its finest models. Recognized for their sleek and sexy design, high performance, and innovative technology, Alfa Romeo cars have been admired for over a century.

Beginning with the history of the Alfa Romeo company itself, this lavish book includes rare archival material, some published here for the first time, along with historical posters and advertisements for Alfa Romeo, many of which were designed by famous artists and illustrators. Alfa Romeo was one of the first brands to be collected by vintage car fans and even today its models are highly renowned. The latter half of the book features an overview of eighty models belonging to private collections, from 1910 to the present day. An impressive selection of vintage photographs is accompanied by brief, informative texts that focus on the chief characteristics of each of the vehicles illustrated. Featuring a preface by Mario Andretti, this book is essential for any rare automobile aficionado.

Streamlining is a metaphor for progress, surprising in its formal diversity and breadth of content and meaning. It is not necessarily trying to achieve maximum spedd, but aims to produce the highest possible degree of effectiveness; to this extent it has remained entirely up-to-date. But as an impetus it is a historical phenomenon that peaked twice, first in the thirties and then in the fifties.

"History can be more than a dry record of politics, economics, and sociology. It can, through this book, tell us about ourselves and who we have been through a panorama of fascinating, provocative, amusing, or purely utilitarian objects - the tools of life. Even though you may be familiar with some of the objects in this book, their early births - like Cartier's "Santos" wristwatch in 1904 and the Coca-Cola bottle in 1915 - may surprise many. The canonical "Red Blue" armchair of 1918 and the "Sacco" seat of 1969 are highly recognizable objects today, but can you place them and others within the same year of other landmarks? For instance, in 1918 the electric food beater and the refrigerator appeared and women were first allowed to vote in England, and in 1969 the first humans landed on the Moon and the TV series "Monty Python's Flying Circus" debuted. Interesting stories about these objects as well as 96 others are accompanied by a list of some of the historical milestones which have colored and altered the fastest-paced 100 years of human endeavor - the 20th century."--BOOK JACKET.
