How does the styling of a car come about? How does one get to the top of the "Design" division of a big car manufacturer, a sector constantly under the "friendly fire" of the entire management staff, presidents, and CEOs included, because styling is susceptible to the most disparate of interpretations?
To these questions answers Walter De Silva, a designer of indubitable fame, with top-level experience in an impressive number of brands: Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Audi, Seat, Volkswagen, Škoda, Lamborghini, Bentley and Bugatti, as well as direct contacts in Ducati and Porsche.
A long story, narrated by De Silva in a brilliant and spontaneous form, giving the reader the impression that the author has succeeded in transferring his own expressive capacityin Design on paper, including the moods, pathos, humours and discontent that have characterised the genesis of the many cars he has signed.
An impression strengthened by the publication, alongside the text, of several original drawings of the author. De Silva's story proceeds nimbly thanks to its subdivision into episodes, many of which have the author and famous names of the world's motoring gotha as protagonists.
Of course, all the famous models of the Milanese designer are featured, such as the Alfa Romeo Proteo and Nuvola prototypes and 156 and 147 saloons.
The list of models designed for the VW Group is very long, including the "third generation" Audi A6, on which the famous "single frame" radiator grille made its debut, with a bold design that embraces the entire front area and has characterised the entire production of the Ingolstadt company since 2004.
Il Codice De Silva, a true "automotive story", whose protagonist is Design, but not only!
