Paolo Rampini was born in December 1949 in Milan, the city where he has always lived. He had a passion for toy cars since he was a child.

"At 13 years old, he had a collection of 150 models".

After 50 years of collecting, he still has a collection of around 12,000 pieces, most of which are die-cast models.

Paolo Rampini started his career as a publisher and author of books on antique toys and model cars in 1982.

From 1982 to 2021 he produced 26 paper books, among which the Golden Book of Model Cars (1995) and those on Bburago and Brumm stand out for their interest and success.

This volume, published in 2020, concerns a little-known kind among collectors, that of rubber models.

As the author points out, collectors of rubber model cars are quite few, especially in Italy; for this reason, even if many pieces are rare, quotations are not very high.

Models produced from 1930 to about 1980 are listed, as well as models made of extruded plastic. Some models made of thick, soft, rubber-like plastic (PVC) appear, mostly from the 1970s and 1980s.

The text of the book is in Italian, but the lists are in English so that everyone can understand without difficulty.

Like all Paolo Rampini's books, Automodelli Gommosi is amply illustrated and counts 96 pages.
