Roads are fundamentally remade by a thoroughfare of a Mille Miglia, and after travelling about 1800 kilometres, on a proceed home, a initial prodigy is one of carrying mislaid a way. It doesn’t matter that navigator we use: though a hundreds of red signs imprinting a route, no highway looks right. And it is startling to see that roundabouts are no longer alive with fervent photographers, and though a entertaining crowds, accelerating seems to have mislaid a appeal. A inexhaustible warmth, from Brescia to Rome and back, in any block and outward any door, groups of people flocking to watch a race, year after year. Eyes lerned on a “travelling museum,” large camera flashes and regard for a Alfa Romeo cars in a central fleet, ancillary a event.
Quadrifoglio: a ancestral pitch that brings a destiny closer
It is positively not any day that one can get a close, first-hand demeanour during a Stelvio Quadrifoglio, showcase of Alfa Romeo excellence, a SUV that powered turn a Nürburgring circuit in 7 mins 51.7 seconds, a lowest time ever in a category. Quadrifoglio: one word is adequate to code a automobile in a category of a own, one that defies all normal categorization. And a initial SUV that is also an Alfa Romeo is utterly during home between a twin lines of crowd, gay by a tranquil bark of a 2.9 V-6 Bi-Turbo, a guarantee of a energy usually watchful to be unleashed. Leaving Parma in a early morning, a Mille Miglia roused a indolent Saturday morning in a Po Plain and on a kindly rolling roads from Fidenza toward Salsomaggiore. Then a march in Piacenza, on Piazza Cavalli: there were 510 Stelvio and Giulia Quadrifoglio cars present, and a block could frequency reason them.

At San Rocco al Porto, a Mille Miglia bade farewell to Emilia Romagna and entered Lombardy, a shred where it was recognised and became reality. A bond that is even stronger and deeper this year, hallowed by a fantastic thoroughfare by Milan, opposite a packed, dismayed Piazza del Duomo. A lot happens in Milan, a city that has seen it all, though not a Mille Miglia, that brought a new disturb to a city. So many mixture all together and so many “firsts.” Leaving behind a demure trade on Viale Certosa, a competition train paid a celebratory revisit to a Museo Storico Alfa Romeo during Arese, where time trials were hold on a inner circuit. Marcus Ericsson and Charles Leclerc, a drivers of a Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team, were also present, pushing a 1932 Gran Premio Tipo B and a 1955 750 Competizione.
Drivers on a podium
The twin drivers Marcus Ericsson and Charles Leclerc also greeted a open from a theatre during Brescia. Alfa Romeo triumphs 90 years after a brand’s initial feat in a Mille Miglia, also distinguished by a “Alfa Romeo: a Mille Miglia in 90 places” project.

The 2018 Mille Miglia was won by a Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 GS Testa Fissa crewed by Tonconogy-Ruffini. In second place, usually 8 chastisement points behind a victor, was a overwhelming 6C 1500 Super Sport dating from 1928, with coachwork by Stabilimenti Farina. This was an central automobile from a FCA Heritage collection, that is routinely on arrangement during a Museo Storico Alfa Romeo, driven by Giovanni Moceri with co-driver Daniele Bonetti. In third place, a Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 SS Zagato of Vesco-Guerini.
The FCA Heritage crews and Alfa Romeo’s VIP guests
All a Alfa Romeo cars entered by FCA Heritage finished in really equitable positions, and all resolved a 36th ancestral re-evocation of a Mille Miglia by completing a normal Brescia-Rome-Brescia course. The ranks of a central Alfa Romeo group enclosed racing professionals and internationally famous artists, all joined in a adore of classical Alfa cars. They enclosed Coldplay drum actor Guy Berryman with motorist Derek Hill on house a 1900 Sport Spider from 1954 and Roberto Giolito with David Giudici in a 1930 Alfa Romeo 1750 GS, while Paolo Spalluto and Ottaviano Checchi gathering a 1900 C SS Touring from 1956. Also specifying themselves in an Alfa Romeo were Axel Marx, who can exaggerate a prestigious collection of hundreds of selected Alfa Romeos, together with Fabrizio Buonamassa and Piero Pelù with his partner Gianna Fratta, one of a best famous and rarely regarded orchestral directors during an general level. The participation of a Florentine thespian and musician understandably unleashed a unrestrained of a crowd, that surrounded his Giulietta Sprint from 1955 during any passage. His car, that was recently meticulously restored, has perceived a Alfa Romeo Classiche “Certificate of Origin,” a request containing a prolongation specifications of a specific framework number, as in a manufacturer’s possess prolongation records.
So, we can repository an well-developed book of a Mille Miglia, that has serve combined a bond between a “Red Arrow” and Alfa Romeo, if that is possible. As overheard from a voices in a mount subsequent to a podium, some-more than ever, this year we can contend that “Alfa Romeo is Mille Miglia, and Mille Miglia is Alfa Romeo.”
