I’m an American of Italin descent and on one of my trips to Italy I had the opportunity to visit the Museum. I was in awe of the collection and the quality of the vehicles. After I finished my visit a woman approached me and told me Mr. Nicolis would like to meet me. I couldn’t understand why, maybe I did something wrong because I was the only visitor going under the cars to see the restoration work. The Commendatore met me and took me on a private tour of the unbelievable restoration facilities in the basement of the building. This was a once in a lifetime experience for me that I will never forget, Commendatore NIcolis was a true gentleman who recognized someone who shared his passion for automobiles! After we went to his private offie where he gave me several publictions and his book and then he signed them! What a man, what an experience!
