15. Januar 2010 Zagato
Among the great names of the world’s body stylists, a place at the absolute top must go to Zagato, a name closely linked to the story of motor racing but also to that of style. And a name that celebrated the 90th anniversary of its foundation in 2009. It was in 1919 when Ugo Zagato founded U. Zagato & C, a company that, in just a few years, earned great fame among the numerous car manufacturers, the first of them Alfa Romeo, who gave the Milanese stylist the task of building the body for the unforgettable 6C 1750 and the 8C 2900, which appeared in the Thirties. That sporting vocation was no less prominent after the Second World War, when there appeared in sequence the Fiat 8V, the Alfa Romeo SZs and almost all the Lancia sports coupés. This book lives again the company’s extraordinary story of technology and style, sub-divided into decades, its story told in short passages of text and by an outstanding collection of beautiful archival photography. Well worth noting are the profiles in color of all the projects by the celebrated stylist, from the S.V.A. 5 bi-plane used by Gabriele D’Annunzio for his flight to Vienna in 1918 to the latest concept cars.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Italien ist bekannt für gutes Design, vor allem auch rund ums Automobil. Verantwortlich für viele Ikonen sind die Karosserieschmieden Italiens, die vielfach aus Stellmacherbetrieben hervorgingen. Auch deutsche Erfolgsmodelle, wie der VW Golf 1, der Karmann Ghia, der Glaserati oder der VW Scirocco wurden in Italien geboren. Zu den bekannten Karosserieschmieden zählen bzw. zählten beispielsweise Bertone, Frua, Gandini, Ghia (heute im Besitz von Ford), Giugiaro (ItalDesign), Pininfarina, Touring (1926-1967) und last but not least ZAGATO.

Zagato Milano zählt zu den ältesten heute bestehenden Karosserieschmieden, die in Deutschland aber weniger bekannt ist. Dieses Buch ist sozusagen als Hommage zum 90. Geburtstag erstmals im Jahr 2009 publiziert worden. Rennsport, Styling und die Fertigung von Kleinserien zählen zum Programm des Unternehmens, welches 1919 von Ugo Zagato gegründet wurde. Unter seiner Leitung war das Unternehmen vorwiegend für die großen italienischen Marken aktiv, wie z.B. Fiat, Lancia oder Alfa Romeo. Zu den Ikonen aus dieser Zeit zählen vor allem der Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 SS und der Alfa Romeo 8C 2300.

Mit der Wirtschaftswunderzeit richtete sich das Unternehmen internationaler aus. Man arbeitete auch für Maserati, Abarth, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Ford, Jaguar, MG, Rover, Volvo, Bristol, Rolls Royce, Nissan oder Toyota.

Zu den Ikonen zählen z.B. Fiat Abarth (ab 1957), Alfa Romeo Giulietta SZ Coda Tronca (1961), Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ (1962), Alfa Romeo Alfetta Z6 (1983), Alfa Romeo S.

Zagato Milano 1919-2009: The Official Book

2009 was a big year for Italian coachbuilder and design atelier Zagato. The Milanese firm celebrated its 90th anniversary, had (once more) a special class at the Pebble Beach concours, and a few weeks later mourned the loss of Elio Zagato (1921-2009), son of the legendary company founder Ugo Zagato and head of the eponymous design studio. Another Milanese institution, the publishing house of Giorgio Nada, commemorated the anniversary by adding yet another book to its already considerable list of Zagato titles.

This book does not come right out and say what it is. Neither do the press release or the advertising copy. If you know of Nada's other Zagato books (for example Zagato: Seventy Years in the Fast Lane, Zagato 1919-2000, Elio Zagato - Storie di corse e non solo) you would assume this new one to be along the lines of those others. It isn't. It lists no author, a first clue. It does have an Introduzione but it says nothing about who wrote it or why, and only talks about the greater glory of the city of Milan (as does most of the entire first chapter). This is a book a Chamber of Commerce would love to bring out if it had the money! In fact, the reason for drawing so much attention to the city's industrial and cultural accomplishments probably has to do with the 2015 World Expo that will be hosted by--Milan.

The Impressum page discloses, in small type, that Andrea Zagato, son of the aforementioned Elio, is one of two people credited with the Testi. The other is Zagato's marketing and communications director, Paolo Di Taranto. (The book lists no job titles, only names.) And Andrea's wife Marella (a niece, incidentally, of Renzo Rivolta of ISO Rivolta fame), who comes from an advertising background, art-directed the book. At the bottom of the page is a blurb--the smoking gun as it were--in which Nada expresses its pleasure at assisting its friends at Zagato in producing this book "which was devised and created completely within Zagato's walls." So, there it is: this is a promotional book, by Zagato about Zagato. Nothing wrong with that as long as you weren't expecting a learned, critical, independent appraisal of the firm or its creations.

"In-house" does mean molto lira and, clearly, the book cuts no corners in terms of paper, binding, design, and typesetting. "In-house" might also have meant a level of access to material not ordinarily available to outsiders, but that does not seem to be the case. Everything here has been seen before, with the possible exception of the many really excellent color scale drawings of cars (and three airplanes) in profile. These are attributed to Norihiko Harada and Marco Pedracini whose names we recognize as Zagato designers, Harada being the Chief Designer.

The book is divided into decades. The presentation follows the same pattern for most decades: a full-page archival photo followed by a one-page summary of highlights; a car feature; three car illustrations; three mini-bios of noteworthy company people or drivers of that decade; three more drawings; a full-page period ad; a collage of random, uncaptioned photos; and a full-page beauty shot.

The exceptions are the first and last decades. The former is dispensed with on four pages that talk about aircraft, and the latter comprises nine contemporary-car features and three of marque (Lancia, Ferrari, Porsche) anniversaries. This is followed by a few words and photos describing the work of the atelier and seven spreads of the major marques that sported Zagato bodies, with seven more about the racing teams that ran Zagato-bodied cars. Preceding four pages of magazine and book covers is a final section depicting 38 cars described as "collectibles" with their basic specs, price then/now, and production numbers. Considering that, for instance, the 1926 price of an Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 SS is listed as "30 Euros" one assumes that this is the period price converted from Lire into Euros but unadjusted for inflation. In other words, meaningless data, especially when juxtaposed with a current price of 1.5 million Euros.

Throughout, photo captions are sparse, if there are any at all, and rarely contain more than the model name. The book is in Italian and English, side by side, but the English translation is only of the main text and skips items such as chapter titles or specs. With a bit of imagination it's easy enough to decipher them. The English text reads well enough, but was most certainly not done by a native speaker. And, there is no index.

Well presented book in Italian and English. Written by the Zagato family, and gives a nice overall background on where the company started, to what they do now. Very interesting to see how Zagato car design has infuenced many other cars over the years. Very influential design house. Nice!
