An all-Italian race
Verdi's native land, the masks of the Viareggio Carnival, the timeless charm of Rome, the legendary Futa and Raticosa passes in the Apennines, the unique light of Lake Garda and, of course, 400 stunning classic cars filing through some of the most picturesque locations in Italy.
As in previous years, the 1000 Miglia brings historic automotive heritage into contact with the artistic and cultural heritage of this beautiful country — they don't call Italy the “Bel Paese” for nothing!
The historical re-enactment of the “most beautiful race in the world”, as Enzo Ferrari called it, retains all the distinctive traits that made it famous: a route stretching over 1000 miles from Brescia to Rome and back, divided into four stages.
- First stage, 16 June: Brescia-Viareggio 289.53 km
- Second stage, 17 June: Viareggio-Rome 543.89 km
- Third stage, 18 June: Rome-Bologna 581.99 km
- Fourth stage, 19 June: Bologna-Brescia 304.40 km
With an unbeaten record of 11 victories between 1927 and 1957 (the period in which this time-honoured endurance race was held), Alfa Romeo is inextricably linked to the 1000 Miglia. The Milanese automaker, actively supported by the Heritage team, proudly returns to the historical re-enactment of the most beautiful race in the world with the aim of adding a new chapter to its amazing legacy.
