Italian excellence: vintage cars and boats

Between June 16 and 19, 2021, the most beautiful race in the world will start from Brescia: the 1000 Miglia.
This competition has always been committed to bringing prestige to large and small towns along this route, thus bringing added value to the territories.

Each place becomes, thanks to this race, an integral part of its own success.
With this spirit the project “L’Italia della 1000 Miglia” was born: a declaration of love towards the territories crossed by the Red Arrow that invites to discover the beauty, uniqueness and excellence that they preserve.

Promoting the growth of a culture made of attention to communities, territories and passion for Italian excellence such as the collection of Riva vintage boats.

The 1000 Miglia bears witness to how a historic automobile race held between 1927 and in 1957 it became famous and renowned as well as “the most beautiful race in the world”.

In the beginning, the 1000 Miglia was an inline speed race with start and finish in Brescia. Each participant drove to Rome through central and northern Italy. The origin of the name of the race derives from the length of the route; in fact, despite several variations over the years, it remained about 1600 kilometers long, equivalent to about one thousand imperial miles.

Since 1977, the Mille Miglia has been revived in the form of a historic regularity race in stages whose participation is limited to cars produced before 1957, which had participated (or were registered) in the original race. The Brescia-Rome-Brescia route follows the route of the original race, even with its variations.

For fans of the heritage of the 1000 Miglia, it is possible to take the opportunity to discover, a few kilometers from Brescia, the collection of Riva vintage boats.

A passion that has been handed down for generations. The history of the Riva brand and its exclusive creations in all their refined details brought together in a unique collection.
