It was minute and delicate, that unknown young Canadian who had rushed in a hurry on a flight to Italy. He had thought of a joke when they told him that Enzo Ferrari had summoned him to Maranello, proposing him to replace Niki Lauda, ??the champion who had gone by slamming the door. Thus, by bet and almost by chance, began the legend of Gilles Villeneuve, who had a poet's face and almost disappeared inside the passenger compartment. Paolo Marcacci tells her in dense pages of passion and heroism, where, between monstrous accelerations and scary carambola, there is space for a series of poetic and existential reflections: the destiny and the solitude of the predestinates; traditions like Noodles in "Once Upon a Time in America"; the crazy flight of Ulysses. From snowboots to Zolder's fatal lap. In the background, the beautiful and damn Formula One race between the late seventies and early eighties, where the mechanics had not yet surrendered the predominance of electronics and a handful of absolute riders gave rise to epic duels on circuits of all the world. In the midst of them, suddenly, from the vanquished of the Canadian snow, the melancholy smile of Villeneuve was peering into the fast, moving the rush of the risk a little higher, to write a story that was already a legend, between the noise of the pistons and the beats of a heart born to the asphalt.
