I never get tired of looking at his Swiss GP book and I was wondering if anyone has a complete list of his other works?

Thanks,

Ron Scoma

"Das Jahrhundert des Rennsports" was published in 1997, it is the German language equivalent to the "Complete History of Grand Prix Motor Racing". The 1990 version was also published in Italian as "Grand Prix Story", edited or translated ("a cura di") by Luciano Greggio and not by Cimarosti himself.

And not to forget: four decades of news, reports and articles in the Swiss "Automobil Revue" where he was sports editor!

What is his native language? From his name I would guess at Italian. But like most Swiss I imagine he is tri-lingual and can probably get by in their 4th language whose name escapes me (Romansch or something like that).

I have the 1997 version of his Complete History . . . and find his essentially neutral Swiss perspective interesting.

Adriano Cimarosti was born in the Friuli region, at the Eastern corner of Italy. He is perfectly fluent in Italian, using regularly the language for many articles he writes for Italian magazines and books.
