Pistons, Passions, Pleasures, A Sicilian Dream is the story of the Targa Florio, the great road race formerly held in Sicily. Alain de Cadenet and Francesco da Mosto head to the 'Granary of Italy' in Alain's Alfa Romeo to explore the course of the long-distance classic and to find out about its history. Through dramatic reconstructions we hear how the Targa Florio was dreamt up by Vincenzo Florio, the son of a notable Sicilian family who longed to put his Island home back on the international scene. The film explores the rich and varied history of the grueling race that wound its way through the sublime Sicilian landscape for nearly seventy years.
