© Driving through the Alps
The Alpineshowroom project was born with the rediscovery of The high-roads of the Alps, 1911, a travel diary by Charles Lincoln Freeston, an English explorer, journalist and writer, member of the Royal Geographical Society and founding partner of the Royal Automobile Club, who ran over 177 Alpine passes with a Napier and a Sheffield Simplex.
In order to celebrate this talented personage, a century on, the editing company Scenari S.r.l. offers this unique work in the editorial panorama, to represent the scenario of driving through the Alps, from Freeston times to present day: more than 800 colour pages, split in two elegant cardboard volumes.
After the new edition of the 1911 book in the first volume, the work goes on experiencing the birth of driving as a sport together with the feats of Alpine pioneers: pilots, patrons and organizers of the various events, clubs, engineers, collectors, advertisers, politicians, joined by the passion for Mountains & Motoring.
The book portrays an ideal fusion of the Alps and Europe: envisioned for mountain lovers and romantic drivers, as in the same way for hikers, cyclists, and bikers, for historians, collectors, and lovers of antique prints, and for transport experts, here, there and everywhere in the Alps.
