Monza Then and Now(ish)

With footage from Frankenheimer’s Grand Prix, onboard Formula 1 footage from 2007, and some handheld camera on foot, motorsport and surfing video team Norwell 9 Productions explores the stark differences and occasional similarities between the Autodromos Nazionale Monza of 1966 and 2007.

I suspect you know which version I favor, but it’s the occasional commonality that really stand out for me here. In what is ordinarily a study of contrasts, Norwell 9 does a good job of capturing the places where Monza has held on to her past, rather than tossing them all out with the banking.

Hang in there through the split screen comparisons towards the end.
