|Long name||Scuderia Arzani-Volpini|

Volpini was initially involved in the lower classes of Formula racing, such as Formula Junior and Formula Three. Volpini joined forces with Arzani in 1954, hoping to enter the Formula One World Championship. To this end, the team purchased the chassis of the 1950 Scuderia Milano-Maserati for the 1955 Formula One season. The team subsequently improved the engine and the bodywork of the car. It was entered in the 1955 Valentino Grand Prix for Mario Alborghetti, but it could not be constructed in time. The team made its debut in the 1955 Grand Prix de Pau, where Alborghetti suffered a fatal crash.
The team contested only one Formula One World Championship Grand Prix, the 1955 Italian Grand Prix. Driver Luigi Piotti drove the car, but did not start the race due to a problem with his Maserati 2.5 L6 engine. The team did not return to Formula One afterwards.
