The 24th edition of the Vernasca Silver Flag celebrates the 120th anniversary of Fiat.
The 2019 edition of this celebrated event in Piacenza, which is billed as a "rolling concours d'elegance for historic cars", is dedicated to models built by the Turinese brand. In some respects, the Vernasca Silver Flag is returning to its roots by adopting the theme "Fiat va di corsa” (Fiat goes racing), because the winner of the inaugural Castell'Arquato-Vernasca hillclimb in 1953 was a Fiat, driven by Giovanni Corazza.
That success was repeated the following year by Giovanni Auricchio’s victory in a Fiat 8V.
The event is organised in conjunction with FCA Heritage, which is attending with some of its most celebrated Fiat-branded models.
