What is the Mille Miglia? The Mille Miglia was an open-road endurance race, which took place in Italy twenty-four times from 1927 to 1957 (thirteen before the war, eleven after 1947). Starting in 1977, the Mille Miglia was revived as a regularity race for vintage cars. Participation was limited to automobiles that were manufactured prior to 1957 and had taken part in the Mille Miglia historical races. The route was from Brescia to Rome, back and forth. It was the same route as the original race and the starting and finish line were at the very same point on the famous road of Viale Venezia. Nowadays, it is a spectacular automotive and media event, as well as a legendary race. It is a spectacularly unique and popular celebration that takes places in some of the most striking regions in Italy, Tuscany included. Every year, 380 crews from over 30 countries around the globe participate in the re-enactment of the historical race.
