The Riverside International Automotive Museum celebrates the 100th anniversary of Maserati with a special reception and dinner for Adolfo Orsi Jr., one of the foremost authorities on the history of the famed Italian marque.

Orsi, whose family owned Maserati from 1937 to 1968, will present an in-depth look at the century-old company that built some of the world’s most-iconic race cars and sports cars.

A number of Maseratis from the museum’s collection will be on display during the dinner and reception.  The Riverside collection houses 25 examples of Maseratis dating to 1946.

The event takes place Saturday, August 9, with the reception at 6 pm and dinner at 7 pm. Cost is $75 per person.
