Parilla News


New Parilla book: The idea of a Parilla book started out in 1998, but delays pushed the creation of this all in one coverage of the company until late 2006. Italian Parilla collector, Bruno Baccari has done a wonderful job with this 400 page book. The sons of the founder, Angelo & Achille Parrilla also chipped in with information. Coverage of the Parilla story in the USA was done by writer Michael Dregni. Every model is represented and there is also year by year coverage, plus lots of race pictures and information. The one thing about the book that might be a problem for some is that it is in Italian and there is no English translation. The pictures are the real highlight of the book and there are plenty of them. The book is hard to get if you are not living in Europe, but people do manage to find a way to get a copy.
