Zagato — Masterpieces of Style

by Luciano Greggio and Alvise-Marco Seno

It was in 1919 that Ugo Zagato established Carrozzeria U. Zagato & C., a business that acquired great fame in just a few years among the numerous car manufacturers of the period, first of all Alfa Romeo, which entrusted the Milanese body stylist with designing and building the body of the unforgettable 6C 1750, as it did its 8C 2900 that appeared in the 1930s. From then on, the famous marque became synonymous with style - not only in Italy - designing a series of masterpieces including the Lancia Aprilia Sport, the various Panoramic cars of the immediate post-war period, the Aston Martin DB4, the Alfa Romeo SZ and TZ, the Lancias Fulvia, Flavia and Flaminia and many more. From the 1990s Zagato re-emerged as an atelier, designing small production run cars and sometimes one-offs for its wealthy clients.

This book covers the fascinating story of this prestigious body stylist.
