Rolling event begins in Venice and ends in Trieste
Launched two years ago, the second Lamborghini & Design Concorso d’Eleganza is scheduled for September 19-21 in Venice and Trieste, Italy, and this year will celebrate the work of architect Gae Aulenti, Lamborghini has announced.
Around 30 classic Lamborghinis will participate in the event staged by the company’s Polo Storico classics department.
The late Aulenti was born near Trieste and gained fame for representing Italian design and architecture with buildings in Europe, Asia and North America.
The rolling concours begins Friday in Venice with the cars being driven to Portopiccolo in Trieste. The formal concorso takes place Saturday morning.
“To celebrate the creative genius of Gae Aulenti, the inspiration for this year’s concours, the square facing the port of Portopiccolo will become an open-air museum displaying various objects related to her projects,” Lamborghini said in its news release.
“The concours Lamborghini drivers will arrive in Piazza Unità d’Italia around lunchtime, and then in the afternoon will retrace the famous Trieste-Opicina hill climb road.”
The inaugural Lamborghini & Design concorso was staged in 2017 in Neuchatel, Switzerland and was devoted to the work of the architect and designer Le Corbusier.
