In 1980 I proposed to Enzo Ferrari the publication of a catalogue raisonne of all his automobiles, a book that would lend organization to the subject and, more importantly, would be conceived and executed like the catalogue raisonne of an artist. To explain my editorial idea, I had taken a few books of this sort with me, on Paolo Veronese and Jacopo Tintoretto. He liked the idea (and perhaps it amused him, but Ferrari was not the sort to display unnecessary smiles) and instructed Franco Gozzi, his assistant, to collect the file material I would need. To accomplish this truly ambitious project, I called upon some of my friends who were experts on the subject: Augusto Costantino, then director of the Fiat Historical Center; Antoine Prunet, author of a fine first book on Ferrari; Bruno Brida, engineer and publisher of "Quattroruote" magazine; and Giulio Vignale, nephew of the famous coachbuilder of the earliest Ferraris, knowledgeable on many episodes surrounding the various bsrchette and herlinette of the late '40s and early '50s. We also had the full collaboration of Pininfarina and some other Ferrari~lovers." boxed set of three volumes. very scarce. currently selling on amazon for $375.00. Bookseller Inventory #
