The “Dolce Vita” glamour in an automotive viewpoint. The showbiz protagonists who made unforgettable the 1950s and 1960s, together with their beautiful cars, revealing the fascinating portrait of an era.
“This beautiful photo book makes us a precious gift, broadening our view, multiplying the match between car and movie stars, which is why it is a portrait of an era. Looking at these pages, the eyes linger on beautiful actresses and fascinating actors: there are Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg, Sophia Loren and Walter Chiari, Tognazzi and Spaak, Audrey Hepburn and Mel Ferrer. And Giulietta Masina and Alberto Sordi, Gina Lollobrigida, Anthony Quinn and Joan Collins. All of them are at the steering wheel, or next to the driver, or near a beautiful car and smiling in front of the camera. Everyone plays a role, to be part of a story.
Because, in the end, this is cinema: the art of telling stories. True or invented, fairy tales or tragedies, dreams or reality to be handed down. The charm of the big screen, of that white light that passes over the head of the audience, above us, is perhaps all here: its ability to represent the world we live in, where lived who came before us or where we would like to live. “(Walter Veltroni)
