Held (almost) continuously since 1929, the weekend has two shows, the aforementioned private Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este and a public show the following day at the sprawling Villa Erba. Unlike many premiere car shows, Concorso d’Eleganza is hyper focused, highlighting a very selective offering of between 50 and 60 cars. Walking the show is overload for my brain as vintage F1 engines rev for a large crowd holding their phones aloft. In the frame of a single view I can see a 250 GTO, a 1955 Aston Martin DB3S, a lovely ’51 Ferrari 212 Export, and what may be the most lovely thing ever called a car, a 1968 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale. Miuras? Please. One of the DB5s from Goldeneye? Got it. The insanely cool Lancia Stratos Zero Concept? That too. This is quite the place.
