The definitive history of Franco Scaglione, the father of the mythical 33 Sradale.

Hello all.

I'm happy to share with you the definitive history of genius car designer Franco Scaglione (as told by his daughter Giovanna), the father of the 1967 33 Stradale, the 1957 Giulietta Sprint Speciale and the 1954 BAT's prototypes (amongst others).

Enjoy the fantastic read. There are a few "urban legends" about the 33 Stradale that are finally put to rest, especially the Arese Museum Stradale...

"Franco Scaglione - il Mio Babbo !!" New Release

The editorial team at is pleased to reveal our new feature story "Franco Scaglione- il Mio Babbo !", the personal saga of the world famous automobile designer pieced together through a series of private interviews with his only child Giovanna and relying on well-placed individuals in Italy and reviewing hidden manuscripts that have assisted us in illuminating obscure or unreported historical events about Franco Scaglione's life.
For the first time in 24 years Giovanna has chosen to use our historical writing team to reveal the stories of her father's personal achievements, his struggles, agonies and above all his triumphs...first hand, in English for the world outside of Italy.
Giovanna shares with us as co-editor of this feature story:
"...I will try to explain my father's character, not only as a designer but especially as a man and as a wonderful father. Over the years there has been very, very little information conveyed about my "Babbo" from his personal standpoint…until now !!".
You are invited to read this exciting story by visiting our Alfa Romeo racing heritage site Autodelta Golden Years History Site .

Enjoy learning about the personal and professional life of Franco Scaglione! your Sprint Speciale, Your Giuletta Coupe (Bertone), the stunning 33 Stradale and of course the Bertone Aerodinamica Tecnica series

Best Regards,
Robert Little

The entire story we did on Franco Scaglione has been picked up by and the 13 week run will start next week I am advised.
If any Alfa Romeo club around the world would like to use the feature in its entirety (13,000 words and many pictures) the editor of the webzine or magazine only has to contact me email is at the end of the feature where the copyright regulations are furnished. Thanks, Bob
