Welcome to the new website!
October 19, 2021
The project was renewed after five years; the wait was long, but rewarded by a major renovation. Behind the site a powerful and articulated management system: it is a part of a mechanism invisible to the end user that will have a user friendly interface; is a new, much more performing engine, the result of a large investment in technology, capable of handling an enormous amount of data with exceptional flexibility and versatility.
The four main innovations:
1) Ongoing & Standby. The alternative for online car sites is reborn: the condition of Researches & Updates can be "ongoing" and therefore continuously updated, through research, news and discoveries. Or be placed on “standby”, should it not be in the collector's interest to renew the research work over time and stop at what has already been acquired.
2) New “History”. The history of the cars is told and outlined by means of a single time axis; all information, owners, events, press reviews, bibliography are in one place, on the same line (with the option of multiple filters that can be activated, to select the data of interest).
3) The Photos. Although this is a research project, there are sometimes reasons for the customer to purchase or not purchase the rights to the images. From now on, all the photos found are published. The photos with licensed rights are published visibles. They will be online for an unlimited or a defined period of time, depending on the type of rights paid. Photos with unlicensed rights will be published, but in this case they will be pixeled/blurred. Photos with unknown rights will also be published anyway. In the event that a copyright infringement is found to have occurred (due to the unknown origin of some photos or for any other reason), we declare our willingness and commitment to respect the aforementioned copyright once its existence is demonstrated and brought to our attention. All published photos will be covered by a watermark.
4) The TAG. Global Automotive Tagging is the principle around which the whole mechanism moves. It is the principle of "tagging" the car with multiple definitions or peculiarities (from the type of bodywork, to the name of the race in which it participated, to the designer who developed it, etc.). Each tag applied to the car is a sort of label of the car and becomes a category that groups several cars that have the same characteristic (all the spiders or all the participants in the Mille Miglia, for example). The TAG allows us to rationalize and catalog historical research.
