This year the commemoration of the historical Millemiglia takes place from 17 to 20 May. This is a unique event in the world, a real "travelling car museum" that passes through several art cities in Italy, from Brescia to Rome and back.  The "Best race in the World" since 1927 has gathered the most beautiful vintage cars of all times. During Millemiglia, that takes place every year in May, you can admire real jewels like Bentley, Alfa Romeo, Mercedes, Bugatti, Lancia, BMW and Aston Martin, technical and historical masterpieces of international car manufacturing. The cars and their pilots are the absolute protagonists of a challenging 2-day journey from Brescia to Rome and back, a long and hard race both for engines and crews.
