By Leonardo Acerbi, £60, gior­gion­adaed­i­tore.it, ISBN 978 88 7911 674 9 Acerbi may have writ­ten sim­i­lar books be­fore, but this one in­cor­po­rates pho­tog­ra­phy by Franco Vil­lani. Vil­lani hung around Maranello from the very start, and while Acerbi’s text is in­for­ma­tive, he al­lows Vil­lani’s of­ten pre­vi­ously un­seen work to come to the fore. It’s the fo­cus on the al­ways enig­matic Enzo him­self that makes this book spe­cial. No longer an aloof fig­ure in trench­coat and sun­glasses, here Enzo is caught off guard time and again. From last­minute fet­tling dur­ing For­ties Milles Miglia to his 90th birth­day party held on the 328’s pro­duc­tion line, this book fol­lows Enzo with un­ex­pected in­ti­macy as he cre­ates and guides the Scud­e­ria. A tri­umph.
