Ciao, bello! Here’s something to beat the home quarantine blues: a cache of photos featuring stunning Ferrari sports cars of various vintage participating in the Cavalcade Classiche Ferrari held in Rome, Italy in September 20 to 22 last year. Over 80 classic Ferraris were driven by their enthusiastic owners around Rome, the first time that a large number of Ferrari sports cars converged in the historic city.
The Cavalcade passed through stunning Italian scenery and towns, some of which have never before been part of a major motoring event. In homage to Rome’s history, for example, the journey traced the ancient consular roads, such as the Tiburtina, the Salaria, the Flaminia, the Cassia and the Appia.
On the first day of the Cavalcade (September 20, Friday), the Ferrari owners explored the Lazio countryside, passing through Borgo San Pietro on Lake Salto and Rieti before climbing Mount Terminillo and then visiting the magnificent Marmore Falls. On their second day (September 21, Saturday), they learned the art and history of Todi and Viterbo before stopping for lunch opposite the Palace of the Popes.
September 22, Sunday was dedicated to Rome and its hills along a route that approaches the city through Frascati, Castel Gandolfo and the Archaeological Park of Appia Antica.
A final parade through the streets of Rome offered a great show not only for the Ferrari owners, but for all locals and tourists who are admirers of the Prancing Horse.
Before the participants of the 2019 Cavalcade Classiche Ferrari 2019 could say “Arrivederci, Roma“, their Ferrari sports cars, including some rare ones like the 1954 750 Monza, 1957 500 TRC, and 1964 275 GTB were exhibited in the park of Villa Borghese for the public to admire them.
