It is a nephew of the celebrated “Pinin”, Giuseppe Farina remembered here, one of
Italy's great racers of the past. His tremendous fast and aggressive style of driving
came to light in the thirties with Alfa Romeo at national and international levels and
earned him the esteem of Tazio Nuvolari, who considered him his best 'student'. Past
the long years of World War II Nino Farina returned to motor racing and won at the
wheel of Alfa Romeos, Maseratis and Ferraris. Among his untold successes, he was
the first to win the Formula One Drivers Championship title in 1950 with Alfa. A book
about Farina, resulting from research carried out throughout the world also illustrated
with spectacular, rare and unique pictures was long overdue. Available here is the ninth
work from the 'Racing Lives' series, regrettably not yet translated into English.
