Italian classic cars shows in early 2012

Gentlemen, are you planning a trip to the Land of sunshine? if you are, then you'd better think about February. While there is always a chance to take a little break to head to Rome, Venice or Florence and take loads of pictures of Italian pieces of classic art, there are a few occasions to enjoy the Italian genuine passion for oldtimers. But, this is not the case in February: Make Automotoretro (February 10, 11 and 12) in Turin and Autoclassica (17, 18 and 19) in Milan your destinations and satisfy your appetite of Italian taste. Alright, it is maybe not that easy to convince your wife, spouse, girlfriend, lover to spend some days in Italy on February, a little bit too early to enjoy sunshine and seaside. However, this is a great time for skying on the Alps, and the Turin surroundings will not disappoint you from this perspective. Until January 29th, you will even be still on time to visit the exhibition dedicated to Leonardo (life & works, including the auto-portrait) at the Venaria Reale, a deliciously refurbished, fantastic location near Turin, which is definitely worth a visit. In Milan, you may take a few hours to visit the recently renewed Museo del 900, where the italian art masterpieces of last century are stored in a permanent collection.

Back to the engines, Automotoretro in Turin is a well established exhibition, attracting lots of tourists and collectors. However, should I pick only one of the 2, I would go in Milan, trying to attend (rectius, be invited to) the thrillling RM auction, showing up at the parade of the Concours d'elegance, or supporting any driver at the adrenalinic Alfa Romeo GTA tracking competition.

Enjoy Italy, enjoy these early-2012 classic cars happenings
