Lesser-known Sicily, far from the most crowded coastlines and famous baroque cities, is the unexpected stage for a true epic.

Protagonist: the oldest motor race in the world. The Targa Florio was born in 1906 and is still held today.

The glorious years of the competition, which takes place in Sicily, on the Madonie mountains, have seen the participation of the most important champions of every era: from Varzi to Nuvolari, from Fangio to Siffert.

Conceived by a very young Vincenzo Florio, scion of the great family of shipowners and industrialists, the race brought an agricultural area, still dominated by a feudal economy, to the forefront of international sporting and social news.

Against the backdrop of a great speed challenge, the book allows us to appreciate a place that, from the sea to the mountains, preserves extraordinary beauty and traditions, as well as - who would have thought it - the highest rate of biodiversity in Europe.
