Emilia, land of engines

The main events through the fever for the two and four wheels of Destinazione Turistica Emilia, in a race of burning passion between Parma, Piacenza and Reggio Emilia.

Food Valley but also Motor Valley: under the unique excellence of its food and wine offer, Destinazione Turistica Emilia nurtures a not too secret passion for the two and four wheels, which spreads far and wide across an area that alternates between moments of quite silence and the roaring of engines: a territory which is able to fill the air with a powerful voice, and, furthermore, famous for its history.
Market exhibitions, dedicated museums and tales stained with grease and oil: there are innumerable pathes that intersect and reverse the direction of travel, following parabolic curves and tunnels that get in a past full of surprises, for a thematic experience "at full throttle" on the main road and through the various deviations of a saga concerning, somehow, the heart of.

Bobbio-Penice
From 13 to 15 September 2019
Bobbio (PC)
Although, in the common imagination, the figure of Enzo Ferrari and the famous silhouette of the prancing horse are inextricably linked to Maranello, the epic story of Drake is also stongly connected with the passion of the town of Piacenza for engines.
Indeed, it was right here that, on the 14th June 1931, the "Stradivari of the engines" - as Brera defined him - won its last race as a pilot, driving an Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 between the curves and straights of the Bobbio-Penice speed race, which was organized by the Piacenza Automobile Club.
So, since 1994, the first Sunday of September the CPAE stages the re-enactment of that event with a classic time trial rally, which every year attracts fans from all over the Country.
