In addition to these historical gems, a fleet of thirty Giulia and Stelvio will join the parade.
The 1000 Miglia began in 1927, which begins and finishes in Brescia, passing through Rome and then climbing the Italian peninsula with a total of 1,600 kilometers equivalent to a thousand imperial miles. In 1928, during the second edition, Alfa Romeo won the individual and team titles, and its eight vehicles completed the race successfully.
The total victories in the race that took place until 1957 were eleven, a record that can no longer be beaten and that shows the indissoluble link between two brands that shine with their own light in the motor world.
