The Champion of Yesteryear: NUVOLARI – 130 Years

Tazio Nuvolari, the flying Mantuan, is not only a great driver of the past – he is a heroic, legendary figure, known and remembered not only by motor-racing fans. He became the icon of an era and the very symbol of an intrepid outlook.

Tazio Nuvolari – considered by Enzo Ferrari and Ferdinand Porsche to have been the greatest driver of all time – now turns 130: a man known in every country on Earth for his unique achievements.

At Modena Motor Gallery, he will be celebrated with an exhibition curated by Scuderia Tazio Nuvolari, in an enthralling setting featuring film footage from the day and blown-up photographs. Also on display will be some key models of the cars and motorbikes with which Nuvolari competed.

“When Nuvolari races, when Nuvolari passes by /
People wait hours for him to come /
And at last when they hear the sound /
They jump up and wave to him /
Shouting out words of love /
When Nuvolari passes by /
Everyone feels his heart close to their own”
(Nuvolari, Lucio Dalla)

CENTRAL GALLERY – YEAR 2022

“50 cinquantini” / 50 50ccs

An exhibition dedicated to one of the passions of yesterday’s youth.
They called it the ‘cinquantino’ (the 50cc moped) and for the youngsters of several generations it was first a ‘forbidden dream’ then a coveted gift and finally an inseparable companion on many an adventure. For it was the moped that gave millions of people freedom of movement and often represented a symbol of autonomy and independence: in a word, a status symbol.

At Modena Motor Gallery 2022, an original exhibition brings together a few dozen of these mopeds, from the more traditional and well-known street mopeds to more sporty and racing models, as well as trial, cross and regularity mopeds.

The bikes on display will be divided by genre, so you will be able to admire the ‘tuboni’ (fat tubers), ‘stesini’(flat lyers), ‘bassotti’ (low sitters), ‘ruotine’ (mini-wheelers) right up to the historical ‘direct drives’ such as the Bravo, Ciao and the Boxer. For some it will be a blast from the past, but for many it will also be the discovery of a world of thrills and spills from another era, a world rooted in distant times, yet one which will hold its place in the history of Italian motoring forever.

Exhibition curated by Moto Club 2000.
