Nubes Argentea is a publisher specialised in fine books about Rolls-Royce and Bentley models. It is managed by Davide Bassoli, the author of “Every Cloud has a Silver Lining”. In memory of his Italian origins, the name Nubes Argentea is the translation in the antic Latin language of Silver Cloud.
Always a classic car enthusiast, Davide has written a number of articles for the most important Italian classic cars magazines, like Ruoteclassiche, and Autocapital. In 2006 he has collaborated with the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta della Sport in the production of the DVD series “Auto da Sogno” about automotive brands.
In 2005 has written together with Bernard L. King his first book titled “Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I & Bentley S 1 – 50 Years” for Complete Classics Publication.
Since 2002, Davide has been the driving force behind the Italian Section of the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club. Since 2007 he is also Registrar for the Silver Cloud & S Type Register for the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club. His interest for Silver Cloud and S type models started about 20 years ago and since there, he collects material about these cars at autojumbles, on internet and at Rolls-Royce and Bentley events. His collection has, at the moment, about 1,500 period photographs and over 80 different brochures about Silver Cloud and S-type models. Considered by many as one of the most expert for these models, he has regular contacts from all over the world, offering expertises on request.
