We hope that you enjoyed a good start to this new season, which already promises a host of highlights.
We are currently preparing one of the most exciting peaks for you. You can look forward to the coming edition of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.
A carefully curated selection of the finest classic vehicles will await you on the shores of Lake Como from 22nd to 24th May 2020.
These are exciting and intense weeks for the Selecting Committee. A large number of applications already arrived at the beginning of the year from vehicle owners and collectors all over the world.
These include truly rare gems and treasures that have never been shown before.
Experience tells us that more applications will be submitted over the coming weeks.
Our experts will select around 50 automobiles from the entries we receive and these will eventually form the exquisite portfolio for presentation to another highly distinguished Jury.
If you are interested in participating together with one of your vehicles, you are urged not to delay and we encourage you to send your application documents to us.
We will be delighted if you are interested in being an entrant and we anticipate with relish the fascinating vehicle you may well surprise us with. The same entreaty applies if you would like to come to Cernobbio with a motorcycle.
The selection procedure for the Concorso di Motociclette is under way in parallel with that for the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.
