May 10th and 11th is when the second edition of Modena Motor Gallery will take place this year. This trade fair joined by lots of Italian creations from today and many years ago was organized for the first time last year. Strangely enough, it is quite rare to find such useful occasions for car enthusiasts in Italy, a country probably home to the most amazing automotive history in the world. This second edition will offer more than last year thanks to an even broader collection of what the Italian industry has left us over the years (there’s even place for a little bit of Italian aviation history from WWI). It now already proves to be an event every enthusiast should visit once, something the organizers realize as well with their international provision of information.

The said collection will not only favor the car enthusiasts, as many motorcycles, mopeds and bikes will also attend the event. The history of Bianchi, for example, is on display with specimens of the army from WWI and the bike of Benito Mussolini. There are rare Maserati-motorcycles, a Gilera Saturno Piuma from 1948, a Moto Guzzi V7 Special and a Ducati 450 Scrambler. Then there’s hall A which will showcase the Italian craftsmanship of fabricating and restoring many things having to do with automobiles. Another unique thing will be the story behind the F1 Michele Alboreto 83 6V from 1985, a car that was developed for F2 with a 2500-engine in 1953 and eventually returned to Italian soil after having been found on a meadow in Uruguay.

Then there’s Maserati. The brand with the trident will of course make good use of this occasion in their hometown to celebrate their centenary. Saturday, at 11h and 17h, Alfieri Maserati – grandson of founder Ernesto – will give two presentations. The Museo Enzo Ferrari and Museo Ferrari are to attend as well with some very unique private properties, not to mention the many clubs and registers from throughout the country. And it’s not only inside the building where lots of fun is to be had, as many collectors of books and replacement parts will surely find that one thing they’ve been looking for all their lives between the countless amounts of unique offerings. The event is open from 9h00 until 19h00 on Saturday and Sunday, except that it closes an hour earlier on the latter.
