The organization of the international event dedicated to the great Nivola continues


In this 2022, which is the 130th anniversary of the Mantuan champion's birth, there will be a special and exclusive edition that will see the world of classic enthusiasts live and bring to life unique emotions, worthy of the legend of  the driver - icon of motor sport. 

From 15th to 18th of September 2022, 300 crews from all over the world will travel a fascinating route of 1,100 km,  divided into three stages, traced among the most evocative landscapes of Northern-Central Italy, through Lombardy,  Emilia Romagna, Marche, Tuscany and Veneto. 
The event, conceived and organized by Mantova Corse since 1991, will take place in compliance of international  federations F.I.A. and F.I.V.A., with A.C.I. Sport and Historical Aci. 

This 32nd edition confirms the partners Red Bull, Tag Heuer and Finservice, together with the return of Banca  Generali, thanks to which the "Nuvolari" will strengthen some of its fundamental characteristics: sports competition,  historical celebration and travelling tourism, discovering suggestive and particularly significant places. 

Sensitive to the problems concerning the environmental protection, for the third year the "Gran Premio Nuvolari  Green" initiative will be re-launched, an important greening action, supported by the patronage of the Comune di  Mantova. The environmental impact caused by the circulation of the historic cars participating in the event will be  balanced by the planting, in selected areas, of such a number of tall trees as to equipoise the total emission of CO2.
