Villafranca di Verona – September 8th, 2021 – A hundred years have passed since the first Italian Grand Prix: on September 4th, 1921 in Montichiari the first edition of the historical race took place. The following year, in 1922, the Automobile Club of Milano decided to build the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, that will soon become the official home of the Italian race.

Museo Nicolis pays homage to Michele Alboreto, because on September 11th, 20 years from his passing, the “parabolica” will be named after him.

We celebrate this event in Villafranca di Verona with the F1 steering wheel signed by him, the one he held during the 59th Italian GP, few days after Enzo Ferrari’s death.

Over 100 Formula 1 wheels on display, most of them signed by the great champions who held them: Michael Schumacher, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost just to mention a few.

To celebrate this important anniversary, Museo Nicolis  will OPEN to the public on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the whole month of September, from 10 AM to 6 PM.
The remaining days we’ll open on reservation for private groups and events.
