26th - 27th September
THE VINTAGE CARS OF 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 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.
The FORMULA JUNIOR, devised in 1958 by Count Giovanni Lurani as a training category, continues to this day to represent an economical solution for competitive racing activity.
ALFA ROMEO: tribute to the 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 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.
The Craftsmen’s Path
Modena Motor Gallery wants to give its own contribution and pay a tribute to the work of the craftsman. Around the perimeter of Pavilion A, the “Craftsmen’s Path” will be set up: more than 30 of the finest companies in the country, including body shops, upholsterers, mechanics, electricians and restorers.
Who lies behind all the splendour of a classic car that looks like it just left the factory 50 years ago? The answer is simple: the craftsmen.
Competent and highly skilled individuals who, with great passion and a huge baggage of knowledge, rebuild a single mudguard, tirelessly hunting down original pieces through dozens of markets, preparing the best possible paint, reconnecting hundreds of rusty, time-worn cables in order to restore an electrical system back to its former glory, and seeking out the finest fabrics to bring back the shine to the old upholstery, or even going about beating pieces of sheet metal by hand, as was done so many years ago.
Car Rallies: Modena Motor Gallery also means movement!
Not only many stationary cars and motorcycles to admire, dream about or even purchase – Modena Motor Gallery also means movement and performance in safety.
- Saturday 26 September: vintage car rally and regularity race held by the Circolo della Biella
- Sunday 27 September: rally and regularity race of 60 crews of Asi Giovani and also on the Sunday, the Harley Davidson performance rally
- Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 September: Triumph motorcycle test-ride with Schiatti Class Motorcycles with on-road and off-road models, and Mr. J Test Drives with Ferrari and Lamborghini cars.

Work in progress!
Also this year, as is traditional, Modena Motor Gallery provides a large space of honour for the craftsmen of the sector. It’s also thanks to their intuitions and their skill that the Modenese Motor Valley has acquired ever more prestige and has become one of the points of excellence of the territory. Through their great savoir faire, the classic cars and motorcycles may be given the sheen and youthful spirit of yesteryear. This is why they have a place of such importance, and the craftsmen are always given a large space inside the car dealers pavilion.
