If you ever wanted a visual history of Ducati design then it has finally arrived – Stile Ducati.
This is not only a history book covering the 90 years of Ducati design it is a faithful printed demonstration of beautiful machines and designs.
The book traces the design development from the early days of the Cucciolo through to the Testastretta with 150 magnificient photographs from, the one and only, Giovanni De Sandre
I understand it is a collector’s edition, which explains the cost, but I highly recommend taking the opportunity of exploring the 336 pages which has stunning imagery and wonderful words.
Ducati Design Director Andrea Ferraresi said, “Every one of our bikes must show it has a full share of Ducati DNA. It must have sports style; it has to ooze adrenalin, power, fluidity and technology. At the same time, its design must be pure and essential, capable of communicating lightness while ensuring high performance and off-the-scale riding fun. A design that sends an at-a-glance shiver down the spine, a taste of what’s to come when you ride it.”
The design and text of the large-format book were developed in house, with detail shots and full photos of each model. A timeline at the end includes key moments in the company’s history, followed by a descriptive index of the images.
“Stile Ducati” is available at official dealerships and the online shop at Ducati.com.
