The event is certified by FIVA

In the time of fast turnover, the ability to indulge in slow pleasures for the spirit becomes more and more valuable. Carrying a gentle nostalgia for a bygone era and a sense of timeless style, the vintage car is an escape from the present, an opportunity to admire timeless craftsmanship, class and aesthetics. Thousands of shades of green, the calm waters of the lake and the silence of the nearby mountain highlight the presence of the beautiful vintage cars displayed to reveal their full splendor. Concours d’Elegance is an experience that both enthusiasts and connoisseurs long remember and look forward to.

The competition

The selection of the cars for the competition is meticulously done, and each contestant receives an individual invitation. The jury panel consists of some of the best specialists in the field of historic cars in Europe.
