1000 Miglia – The most beautiful race in the world

The 1000 Miglia 2020, the thirty-eighth edition of the historical re-enactment of the race held from 1927 to 1957, will take place from 13 to 16 May.

The historic 1000 Miglia was a fascinating endurance race lasting twenty-four editions from 1927 to 1957. Blazoned automotive brands such as Alfa Romeo, BMW, Ferrari, Maserati, Mercedes Benz and Porsche have achieved their fame and allure of sports cars also thanks to the 1000 Miglia.

The “most beautiful race in the world” was reborn in 2012 as the most prestigious event for classic and vintage vehicles that participated (or were registered) in the original race. Today’s route from Brescia to Rome is similar to that of the original race, keeping the starting / finishing point on Viale Venezia in Brescia.

So, on Wednesday 13 May 2020 the procession of 400 historic supercars selected by a special commission will parade starting from Brescia and will pass through the suggestive towns of Desenzano, Sirmione, Villafranca di Verona, Mantua, Ferrara and Ravenna to conclude the first day of the race in Cervia-Milano Marittima.

The following day, the cars will continue the descent along the “Italian boot” through Urbino, Fabriano, Macerata, Fermo, Ascoli Piceno and Amatrice. From Rieti, the vintage cars will arrive in Rome, with the traditional parade through the streets of the Eternal City and with the exciting “catwalk” of via Veneto, where the second stage ends.

Passing through Lucca, the cars will leave Tuscany going up the Passo della Cisa, stopping for the last night of the race in Parma, the Italian Capital of Culture 2020. On Saturday 16 May, the fourth and final day will see the passage from Salsomaggiore Terme, Castell’Arquato, Cernusco sul Naviglio, European City of Sport 2020, and then Bergamo to end the competition on the legendary platform of Viale Venezia in Brescia.
