A compelling book that traces the spirit of speed in Abruzzo, "from Ferrari to Trulli", and recalls that "myth of the eternal race forwards" so intrinsic to this region in general and to the city of Pescara in particular.

Macchine precipitose, with its roaring title of D'Annunzio flavour, is a conscious and documented exaltation of a thousand narratives, both official and unpublished, that chase and overtake each other in the most exciting decades of the short century, from the 1920s with the first Coppa Acerbo to the last road race with the 1957 Pescara Grand Prix, without forgetting the more recent legacy of this automotive vocation.

Witnessing those unrepeatable seasons first hand is Francesco Santuccione, historical memory of Abruzzo motor racing and beyond, who, together with fellow journalists Giorgio D'Orazio, Paolo Martocchia and Paolo Smoglica describes incredible moments when Abruzzo was aiming straight for the finish line.

A book that captures the reader along a path of pages enriched by evocative images of the time, among incredible curves and breathtaking straights marked by the engine of chronicle and a narration full of anecdotes and curiosities never disclosed.

Through the chapters - essays, cameos, articles, interviews - you can meet the Marquis de Sterlich and Prince Bira, Lulù Spinozzi and Guy Moll, Tazio Nuvolari and Enzo Ferrari, Fangio and Moss, a young poet like Roberto Roversi and a brilliant constructor like Berardo Taraschi.

And then there are so many names and facts of a past era, which can, however, be brought back to life in exciting stories such as this one, a book that takes you back in time to those moments when, as the Vate wrote, "the fury swelled the chest of the man bent over the steering wheel of his red rushing car, which ran along the ancient Roman road with a warlike roar, similar to the roll of a vast metal drum".
