AUCTION (Sunday 24 September 2017, 11 am)
AUCTION: BARN FINDS MY LOVE – ROTTAMI D’AMORE
Prestigious scrap cars and motorbikes, bodies, chassis and various parts of famous cars will be put up for auction in order for them to be given a new lease of life. The scenic display, an integral part of the auction, will draw inspiration from the event organised by Artcurial at Retromobile, Paris 2015. Part of the proceeds will be devolved to the Italian Union for the Fight Against Muscular Dystrophy (the UILDM).
