Extraordinary collection made up of hundreds of rare and unobtainable memorabilia assembled in over thirty years of research and passion for this sporting legend.
More than a century after his birth, the myth of Primo Carnera is far from forgotten: everything possible has been written and published about this legendary giant; in the Thirties the giant from Sequals was a fashionable character on the covers of sports and news magazines: for example, the Gazzetta dello Sport dedicated the entire front pages to Carnera for his most important fights and there were also numerous special publications with him hero.
Only a small part of this material was able to resist the destruction of war and the modernization of society and this makes this large Collection built over many years of research very precious. Several postcards have been dedicated to Primo and even these can now only be found in the albums of the most avid collectors. What about the Carnera figurines from the 1930s, now unobtainable pieces!
We find all this material assembled in this splendid and unique collection together with many unpublished pieces on our character including several very rare autographs that the Sequals giant did not dispense easily: this is the idea behind this Collection, called the Primo Album Carnera, an extraordinary journey of images, documents, photos, caricatures, playbills, school notebooks, posters, comics, books, official postcards and publications that illustrate, page after page, the legendary existence of the Friulian giant who became "the most strong in the world".
