30 Classic Lamborghinis Will Light Up The Hills Of Trieste As Part Of A Picturesque Tour And Concorso d’Eleganza
The Lamborghini & Design Concorso d’Eleganza returns for its second running in 2019 and will take place between 19 and 21 September. This year it celebrates the famous Italian architect, Gae Aulenti (1927-2012).
Organized by Lamborghini’s Polo Storico, the collection of 30 iconic vehicles from the marque will start the event off in Venice and complete a 125-mile tour ending up in Triest, the hometown of Aulenti. While the focus is on the older classics built between 1963 and 1991, there will be a selection of newer models present as well. After all, they too will become sought-after classics in the years to come.
The Concorso d’Eleganza will take place on Saturday morning where a panel of international judges will evaluate the 30-strong collection of Lamborghinis from across all eras of production. In celebration of the creative talent of Gae Aulenti, the square facing the port of Portopiccolo will become an open-air museum displaying various items related to her projects. The Lamborghini drivers will make their way to the Piazza Unità d’Italia around lunchtime, following which they will retrace the famous Trieste-Opicina hillclimb road.
The hills in the surrounding areas will indeed be filled with the sound of music but predominantly of a V12 kind, definitely something to savor if you are in the area over that period. The first edition of the Lamborghini & Design event was held in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, in 2017, celebrating the work of Le Corbusier, one of the most important architects and designers of the 20th century. Hopefully, future runnings will become an annual event. After all, good design is worth celebrating as often as possible.
