Ninety years after winning the heavyweight world title and following a slew of books, ;ilms, documentaries, newspaper and magazine articles, comics, clichés and legends, Primo Carnera appears in a truer and clearer light, a light which corrects the all too numerous manipulations of his life and his boxing career.

Precisely on the latter, the most recent studies have shown that there was a “Carnera style”, an elegance, harmony and technique that go well with the moral and ethical values of the champion of Sequals. His technical knowledge of boxing reveals itself extraordinarily current in the treatise that he dictated, from his hospital bed, to his friend Leonardo Picco and his style is now clearly evident in his villa-museum.

This book is the testimony of an extraordinary man, in and out of the ring.
