The crazy years of speed

A journey through the car racing circles of the 1950s. The pilots seemed indifferent to their future, to life, to death, and this indifference was the main characteristic of their nature. After all, they had won the most important game, that of the war, so challenging curves, climbs and descents at maximum speed was not considered so risky. Speed was in their blood, like a man’s ancestral dream. They were unconscious, but for this very reason they were considered heroes. The thrill of speed was echoed in the incitement of the immense crowds of onlookers and fans.
