FERARRI OPUS
THE ULTIMATE BOOK (CONCERTO)
Whether it’s behind the scenes with the workers at the
legendary factory in Maranello, at the races with the
F1 team or in the cockpit with the drivers, The Official
Ferrari Opus offers an unprecedented insight into the
magic of Ferrari.
Opus has commissioned esteemed contributors such as
Leo Turrini, Marco Franzelli, Stephen Bayley and Nestore
Morosini to tell the captivating story of Ferrari, including
such legends as Enzo Ferrari, Luca di Montezemolo,
Alberto Ascari, Fernando Alonso and many, many more.
In the quest to create the ultimate publication on Ferrari,
Opus has scoured private and public picture archives
around the world to select over 2,000 unique, rare or
previously unpublished photographs.
In addition, many exclusive photo shoots have been
commissioned for The Official Ferrari Opus, featuring
key Ferrari personalities such as Luca di Montezemolo,
Piero Ferrari, Niki Lauda and Jean Todt, as well as a
unique photo essay by Rankin, one of the world’s foremost
photographers, on the iconic 1961 Ferrari California
Spider.
The content tells the true nature of this legendary
marque and celebrates its fascinating history. Any Ferrari
enthusiast will certainly appreciate that The Official
Ferrari Opus tells the story of this iconic brand in a way
that has never been told before.
“Opus is not a book; it’s a concerto. A triumphant opera whose score is made up of cars, technology,
history and achievements, and whose protagonists will live on forever. Opus, like Ferrari, is a unique
experience.”
Antonio Ghini, Creative Advisor, The Official Ferrari Opus
A unique combination of technical flair, Italian style and elegance, mystique and an
