Baracca, l'eroe del cavalinno
“A simple but fascinating story”. That is how Enzo Ferrari wrote of the Prancing Horse, the emblem of his cars, both racers and Grand Tourers. A story that became a legend is hidden behind the black horse painted on the fuselages of the fighters flown by the greatest aviator of his time, Francesco Baracca (1888-1918), who was shot down in his Spad over Montello after having destroyed 34 enemy planes.The 10th title in the successful “Racing Lives” series covers the brief, intense and adventurous existence of a protagonist of Italian aviation history through pages of highly evocative text, illustrated with rare photographs of the period, documents and memorabilia.
