Email Marco Zanello

Born in Turin in 1974, Marco, besides writing articles, is in charge of the site management. With a degree in Political Science at the University of Turin and a previous diploma of Industrial Expert at the technical institute ITIS Avogadro, he continued his studies obtaining the M.A. in health economy and policy at CORIPE Moncalieri. Between 2001 and 2003 he was a Visiting Student at the Université de la Méditerranée in Marseille where he worked as a researcher. Since 2004 he has been consultant at the Health Direction in the Molinette Hospital in Turin. Since 2013 he is registered to Italian journalists order. He started interesting in the world of sports cars from his earliest years, when he had an opportunity to watch true and unforgettable motor races, among them the 1984 Monaco and 1986 Zeltweg. As years went by, when he came of age, he took and added also another interest in vintage road cars. Obviously, among them he preferred the ones of sports nature. Eclectic, he devoted his activity particularly on the study of Grand Prix cars, F1 single-seaters going back to the beginnings of the 80's and modern Endurance. Willing to make interviews and above all to comment historical cars races which he considers "the ideal environment where it's possible to have the feeling of the true nature of a vintage car".



Email Stefano Costantino

Like a tide, he goes to and fro according to his time and job commitments. But it remains his affection for the project he helped to create and the friendship with the colleagues who go daily ahead with the “Connectingrod” website. Therefore if from time to time he leaves us, sooner or later he comes back.
He was born in 1977, in the province of Turin, after graduating from high school he took a degree in Political Science with Economic and then attended a course as a clerk at the Management Control, which remains his professional dream. The opening to the world of work has been troubled, by passing from one stage to a call centre, and then he passed for two and a half years as a clerk in an undertaker’s. Luckily, getting older you improve, and now he works as a consultant and lecturer in the SAP field on Financial and Controlling modules. But we will not swear that this is his goal…
As for "Connectingrod" he mainly deals with the subjects related to the vintage cars, in his articles were summarized his different passions: for writing, history, motor races and technique. Thanks to this experience he had the chance to cooperate occasionally with some periodicals in the racing cars field, giving himself the satisfaction of seeing his articles also published in print.
In telling the history in racing cars, he likes capturing the effort and the combination of human factors in the search for victory, in the belief that technology can change, but behind it there’s always the man with his dreams, emotions and intuitions, sometimes brilliant, generating progress. His gaze is not only directed at the past but also to the future, in a time when the car is looking for new means to facilitate the movement to a lower energy cost. In this sense he is a firm supporter of sporting regulations that put a greater emphasis on creativity in the context of energy saving, because the races return to the field of experimentation of new solutions being repaid in the production of standard cars.
