Three days from Modena to Turin, with a racetrack stop in Cremona, to celebrate Maserati’s first century. The International Maserati Centennial Gathering will be held from September 18 through September 20. The three days will see a succession of exhibitions, parades, a regularity race, a track test, a visit to the two Maserati factories and a concours d’elegance. Cars and collectors from all over the world are expected to be in attendance.

A hundred years have gone by since, in December of 1914, Alfieri Maserati and his brothers Ettore and Ernesto opened the first car repair workshop in a basaement on Via de’ Pepoli, Bologna. Here they began to prepare and modify cars for themselves – the three Maserati brothers were also rather capable drivers – and the gentlemen drivers of those heroic days. These were the first steps of a company that in time was to become an international icon of Italian motoring.

The Maserati Centennial Gathering will begin in the morning on Thursday, September 18, in Modena with the arrival of the historic and contemporary models that will be taking part in the event and their display in some of the most captivating urban spaces. The next day, Friday, September 19, the participants will make their way to Turin, with a stop in the San Martino del Lago circuit and a parade through the streets of Cremona. The afternoon of Saturday, September 20, will see the concluding event: the Concours d’Elegance in Piazza San Carlo.

Do not miss the possibility to participate to this glorious event and rent one of our luxury villas in the North of Italy. Enjoy the amazing landscape and shores of the Como Lake, the nature and culture of the Garda Lake and the beauty of Portofino, with its picturesque harbor and the brightly-colored houses.
