Description Description Brembo, a leader in the development and production of high performance braking systems is turning 60. Over the decades, the principal mission of the Italian company has been to brake to best effect the greats on two and four wheels as well as daily users of private cars and motorcycles.

The history, evolution and on-going success of this prestigious Italian company are the themes of this official book, which opens with a preface by the Brembo chairman, Alberto Bombassei. The book reviews the diverse facets of the “Brembo universe”: from its commitments in the automotive, motorcycling and motorsport fields to its attention to all aspects of design, always one of Brembo’s strong suits, from the progressive internationalization of the company through to the particularly topical aspects of sustainable production.

The contributions of the six principal authors - Vincenzo Borgomeo, Massimo Clarke, Gaetano Cocco, Patrizia Giangualano, Lorenzo Ramaciotti and Umberto Zapelloni – are complemented by a similar number of testimonies from figures from within the company and those who worked there at length. The Brembo “phenomenon” is also presented through a wealth of fascinating photographs, mostly drawn from the company archives, which document the unique story of a manufacturing company born in Italy and now a true icon of Italian excellence throughout the world.
