Modena Motor Gallery – Where the Past meets the Future
Modena Motor Gallery has now come to the fore as the ‘parlour of vintage motor-racing’ and not only, where in addition to business, there are the thrills that only a territory like Modena and the region can offer to exhibitors, enthusiasts and visitors alike. The high caliber of the cars on display and the quality of the exhibitions make the event (26th–27th September 2020) one of the most important in Italy. Appreciated by a knowledgeable public, Modena Motor Gallery aims to create the right blend between culture, passion and business.
Modena Motor Gallery stands out with over 360 exhibitors, 900 classic cars and motorcycles, 18 Clubs, Historical Registers and Museums, and an entire 500-metre lane with the most authoritative craftsmen, those who make Modena and the Emilia-Romagna Region a land full of passion for engines, and a crucible of mechanics, engineers, panel beaters and coachbuilders, the envy of the entire world.
Identification with the territory and a gaze towards the future will continue to shine through in every aspect of the show-market and in particular with the presence of the Ferrari Museums of Modena and Maranello, the private collections of Righini, Stanguellini and Panini, and the Museums of Pagani, Ferruccio Lamborghini and Energica Moto Elettrica, along with the presence of the University of Modena & Reggio Emilia and Formula Student, not to mention the more than 35 crafts companies that benefit greatly from the event in terms of boosting their businesses.
Not just business… The 2020 edition in fact provides a real cultural project with the staging of several displays of the very highest level.
THE FORMULA JUNIOR ITALIAN JOB
Show dedicated to the Formula Juniors, promoted by ACI Storico and curated by the Scuderia Tazio Nuvolari Italia, the Historic Minardi Day, the Registro Storico Lucchini and the Museo Tazio Nuvolari.
A display of numerous items that aims to highlight a great cultural heritage represented by many Italian makers who then tried their hand at this training formula such as: Wainer – FIAT Formula Junior 015; Stanguellini Junior, a single-seater built by Stanguellini also thanks to the collaboration with Juan Manuel Fangio from 1958 to 1960 in more than one hundred examples; the Dagrada – 1959-60 Edition; the De Tomaso – 1962–63 Edition, and the Poggi Edition 1959.
ALFA ROMEO SHOW – 110 years of history
This year, the Alfa Romeo brand celebrated 110 years. To celebrate the event, some examples from the Milanese carmaker will be on display. The show is organised in collaboration with the great collector Mario Righini and the Club Motori di Modena as well as other ‘Biscione’ enthusiasts.
THE VINTAGE CARS OF FAMOUS CELEBRITIES
Cars and celebrities, an irresistible combination that takes shape in the exhibition dedicated to vintage cars that belonged to great personalities of the past. Unique and valuable items enhanced by the history of those who owned or drove them, such as the Triumph TR3 driven by Marcello Mastroianni in Federico Fellini’s film La Dolce Vita.
THE PASSION CONTINUES…ON THE TRACK TODAY WITH THE CARS OF YESTERYEAR
Cars that raced then and that still race today: a show of racing cars that even many decades on, still compete in races and old car rallies (Jaguar, Lotus, Alfa Romeo and Porsche), organised by the Circolo della Biella, one of the most renowned clubs of vintage car enthusiasts.
