The beginning of the Ferrari legend, the hesitant and difficult steps taken by Ferrari in the first years of its activity they are recalled here, accurately and calmly by Gioachino Colombo, the young technician to whom Ferrari entrusted the realization of his dreams as a maker
of automobiles. The brief period Colombo spent with Ferrari was just one episode in a long career during he developed Grand Prix cars resourcefully. But it was his V12 - engine, adventurously blueprinted in the bedroom of his lodgings in Milano that guaranteed Colombo
a place in automotive-heaven. Thank heavens Gioachino Colombo remembered recollecting the early Ferrari adventures, putting down all the memories from those days for posterity in the nick of time.
