A flower expo and an exhibition dedicated to typical products of the area – “I sapori della nostra terra” – complete the event, with music and entertainment for all.

From 3pm Saturday until 8pm Sunday night, the exhibition of the Comitato 1° Maggio committee will also be open.


A bit of history. The event was born in 1961 and is indissolubly tied to the local Motor Club and to the idea originally conceived by its president Vambo Bonfanti and his collaborators. The “Motorcycle Expo” was born and later “Cars, Motorcycles and Agricultural machines”, still today one of the major events of the Fornaci expo.
