25/02/2022 - WHEELS IN HISTORY 2022
The project was born this year A.C. Mantova 2022 "Nivola's year 130", created with the aim of honoring, commemorating and keeping alive, even among the youngest, the memory of the great champion Tazio Nuvolari in the 130th year of his birth. Therefore, a program of institutional events with a strongly emotional slant is planned at the Tazio Nuvolari Museum as well as national and international sporting events.
In this context, the participation of the Mantova Automobile Club in the 2022 edition of the prestigious ACI Storico format "Wheels in History" takes on particular importance.
On May 8th an auto-rally will be organized which foresees the departure from Castel d'Ario, the village that gave birth to Tazio Nuvolari, with the arrival at the Vittoriale degli Italiani in Gardone Riviera, through an exciting itinerary in which the participants will relive the places and roads traveled by the pilot, until reaching the complex of buildings that belonged to Gabriele d'Annunzio. During the visit to the Vittoriale, historical events and anecdotes relating to the strong link between the "Poet-soldier" and the "Flying Mantuan" will be remembered.
Also of note is the important and precious support of the Club 8Volanti Tazio Nuvolari, which just recently officially became part of the family of the ACI Storico Club.
