The book report information from the very beginning of the company in the early 1930s to the current president Luca di Montezemolo. The book is divided in some chapters regarding to different decades and the activity of the company during them which provides the enough information to understand the history of the company from primamy sources like experts´opinions. Enzo Ferrari, Sergio Pininfarina, Sergio Scaglietti, Ralph Lauren… they all are very known names that has to do with Ferrari.  These people are among the most important ones that have stayed in this company and have traced in Ferrari. The founder, Enzo Ferrari, is very known because of the steeps that he did with the intention of create the best cars of the world. Segio Pininfarina is also remembered by being one of the best engineers from the 20th century related to the automotive industry because he created high velocity trains, many of the most sports car from this century and other vehicles like the buses that we have in Bilbao, the famous Bilbobus and Bizkaibus.
