Product Description

Patriarca Sr has linked his name and his creations to the figure of Sesto Leonardi, the multiple champion of the category who, with the berlinetta made by Rodolfo, was the author of a Guinness exploit at the 1000 Miglia of 1950. Patriarca also means Baby Junior, the famous proposal of a series of races with small single-seaters all the same derived from the Fiat 500 offered to young drivers at a very low race cost. And here the other son Bruno Patriarca enters the scene, who with his precious testimonies also contributed to the writing of the book. Brilliant technician Bruno, he followed his own path. Driver, tuner, builder, he is still today an appreciated protagonist in the world of historic cars. The book therefore spans several generations, including the current one, in the wake of a name, an era and a history, that of Rodolfo Patriarca.
