"L'Americano", the story of Tom Tjaarda in Turin, is not only that of his beautiful cars. It belongs to the genre of adventures of brave boys.
Those who cross the oceans, throw themselves headlong, seize the opportunities of life. They manage to get where they want and come to terms with deep thoughts.
Of these young people, literature is full, some have become protagonists of fantastic novels. This "fictionalized" biography spans the middle of the 20th century.
Tjaarda meets extraordinary traveling companions: from Luigi Segre to Battista and Sergio Pininfarina, from Renzo Carli to Franco Martinengo, to Giorgetto Giugiaro and, of course, Alejandro De Tomaso.
Cars, men and a whole era now disappeared. A new way to tell the story.
