In just a few days we will be privileged to admire some 50 automobile gems in the famous park of the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este.
We can be certain that our pulse will then start beating just a little faster during some of the magic moments we are going to experience, whether our excitement is inspired by enthusiasm, reverence or temptation as a result of the treasures selected by the talented team of experts.
Each and every one of us will have to decide the extent to which the design of these automobiles reflects subtle, sometimes extraordinary or plain eccentric characteristics. Or is it the technical finesse of crafty engineers and genius weekend mechanics that stirs our emotions. Fascination takes many forms.
Our heartfelt admiration goes out to those individuals who are extremely committed to maintaining these exquisite witnesses of automobile culture for the generations to come. They keep the treasures in running order, often with a great deal of expertise and experience, and also present them to the public so that the most beautiful of them all can gain the highest prize.
No other event is more ideally suited to staging the conceptual expression of this idea than the highly esteemed Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. The fact that the occasion has become established as the leading event in the world is due not simply to a tradition spanning 90 years, the exquisite quality of the vehicles and the incomparably wonderful surroundings on the shores of Lake Como.
The reputation also owes a debt of gratitude to the event’s exceptional partners. Their individual, unique and incomparable creations empower them to highlight the unique nature of this weekend.
We extend our sincere thanks for their valuable and steadfast support.We wish you an enjoyable read.
