Who Can read Italian

I found this in a 1954 record of races won with Pirelli tyres

Hi. They basically announce the pirelli tire. Where it has been used and its achievements. If you want to know something more concrete do not hesitate to ask me.

is it picture 24 where it says

"Taramazzo e Gerino accanato All'Alfa Romeo 1900 gommata con Cinturato Pirelli che li portera alla vittoria assoluta nel Giro d'Italia Categoria Gran Turismo di Serie".

So i think it is Mr Taramazzo and Mr Gerino.

this why it is difficult to google translate stuff because there are so many names in it. It doesn't come out too bad though "Taramazzo and Gerino on the run In the Alfa Romeo 1900 wheeled with Pirelli Cinturato that will lead them to the absolute victory in the Giro d'Italia Gran Turismo Series Category"

"Taramazzo e Gerino accanto all'Alfa Romeo 1900 gommata con Cinturato Pirelli che li portera alla vittoria assoluta nel Giro d'Italia Categoria Gran Turismo di Serie".

"Taramazzo and Gerino alongside the Alfa Romeo 1900 fitted with Pirelli Cinturato (tires) which "will carry" (carried) them to the absolute win on the Tour of Italy (in the) category, Gran Turismo of Series".

More precisely, Luigi "Gigi" Taramazzo and "Gerino" (perhaps Gerino Gerini?) drove AR1900C*01734* to the absolute win and also won the "Series" GT 2000cc category, beating a Lancia Aurelia that won the over-2000cc "Series" GT category while finishing 2nd overall. I have a few photo negatives (by Bertazzini) of AR1900C*01734* on the same event. Here are three of them.

The second and third place finishers in the 2000 "Series GT" category were: #103 AR1900C*01747* (Zagato body) and #100 AR1900C*01764* (Zagato body). Unfortunately, I've not yet scanned either of the images I have of #103. Maybe later?

The 1954 "Giro d'Italia" event ran nine days and was run from 27 September 1954 to 6 October 1954. According to one period description, there were 103 starters and 56 finishers. My notes indicate I have negatives showing more than fifty of the cars, probably taken (mostly?) on 5 October? From a conversation that Corrado Bellabarba had many years ago with a contestant, there was a fatality when a Lancia B20(?) was crashed not far from Bari.
