After all, we are always looking for new and winning ideas for the organization of the weddings, including the choice of vintage cars.

To better understand

The passion for vintage is now well known to all. This “mania” towards the old concerns not only furnishings or furnishing accessories or clothing, it mainly concerns vintage cars, and also motorcycles. Passion definitely created and transmitted by our grandparents and parents.

Already in 2016, before the start of the Love In Franciacorta project, it was in vogue to organize weddings with means other than the usual, unconventional ones.

Besides Franciacorta, but above all Brescia, is the home of the Mille Miglia.

What is the Mille Miglia?

The Mille Miglia was a long distance race which was held in Italy twenty-four times, from 1927 to 1957 (13 editions before the Second World War and 11 after 1947). Since 1977, the Mille Miglia has changed in the form of a regularity race for vintage cars.

Urban legends

A nice anecdote told us by different renters of unconventional vehicles is about 2 foreign tourists (more precisely an Irish couple of the ’45).

In July 2017, this couple rented 2 Vespa scooters, to visit Franciacorta first and secondly Como Lake.

According to the Irish, the trip was made on the highway, but since fines have never arrived, this story has become a urban legend,
Surely it must have been an adventure!

Another nice and, decidedly more recent, memory regards a tour always held in Franciacorta driving Vespa on May 1st.

The participants stopped at the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Neve in Franciacorta and they were all blessed by the local friar… Vespa included!
