Ninety years ago the first Mille Miglia was held on March 26-27, 1927. The First Mille Miglia enables the reader to pin down a story which is not exactly secret, but has remained unknown until now. After exhaustive research of the Mille Miglia Archives, previously unpublished yet invaluable documentation came to light with the historic information they provide. This book tells of the first Mille Miglia’s regulations, the analytical description of 1,618 kilometres of the route - a rare description of the Italian roads in 1927 - specifications of the 101 cars entered for the event with photographs of the drivers, the results list and times at which each entrant reached the various controls at Parma, Bologna, Florence, Poggibonsi, San Quirico d’Orcia, Viterbo, Rome, Terni, Spoleto, Ancona, Rimini, Bologna and Treviso. From this journey into the recorded history of the first Mille Miglia, out came the story of just what the event really was like: a giant utopian undertaking, from which the book now attempts to separate legend from reality. By studying documents, most of which were previously unknown, a different story emerges of the 1927 Mille Miglia’s various stages, what the drivers looked like and all presented as real people. And much of the illustrative material is previously unpublished.
Born in 1946, Carlo Dolcini has been teaching for several years in the Universities of Udine and Bologna as a Professor of History of Middle-Age Philosophy. Among his works a monograph on the political thought in the Middle-Age (1983). He currently deals with both studies on the Middlle-Age and automobiles history.
