Mille Miglia 1947. In this first edition after the Second World War, two cars representing two different eras challenged each other: the Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 B Lungo incarnated the highest expression of the pre-war Sports vehicle, in the races as well as in the concours d'élégance, while the Cisitalia 202 was essential, modern, and clearly projected towards the future. David versus Goliath: the challenge until the last metre between a majestic granturismo and a slim and swift spider, driven by a bedevilled Tazio Nuvolari in one of his last, great endeavours.
The Museo Storico Alfa Romeo and the Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile di Torino offer visitors of Milano Autoclassica – from 23 th to 25th November, stand A10 – an in-depth vision of this legendary chapter in racing history, by means of an ideal itinerary connecting Arese – where the impressive 8C 2900 is exhibited – and Turin, which hosts the small but gritty Cisitalia. Two facilities where you can discover many more events that have marked and made automotive history.
