The event, conceived and organised since 1991 by Mantova Corse, will take place in compliance with F.I.A, F.I.V.A. and A.C.I. Sport regulations, with particular attention to the Covid-19 ministerial protocols and the national sports federation.

The troika of sponsors has been confirmed: Red Bull, Tag Heuer and Finservice, thanks to whom the "Nuvolari" will offer the 300 competitors from the five continents a unique and exciting experience, aimed at combining the pleasure of the most exclusive tourism with sporting competition, discovering suggestive and particularly prestigious places.
