About the Mille Miglia

The Mille Miglia was created in 1927 as a mass race that starts and ends in Brescia, which will take a route leading to Rome and then back up the Italian peninsula. Other sites and cities that are passed through during this 3-stage event includes (but is not limited to):

  • Milan
  • Tuscany
  • Alfa Romeo Historical Museum in Arese
  • Cervia-Milano Marittima
  • Desenzano del Garda
  • Salina Park in Cervia
  • Monte San Bartolo Natural Park
  • Tyrrhenian Sea
  • Ancient capital of the Duchy of Parma

The name Mille Miglia comes from the 1,000 imperial miles this drive totals. The 2018 Mille Miglia broke records since a total of 450 crews took part, including 10 in the “Military Category”, representing 72 different automotive brands and 36 countries across every continent. Of the groups entering, 47 were driving Alfa Romeo vehicles.

And waiting at the finish line to celebrate our brand’s win? Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team C37, which is the Formula 1 racing team our brand is represented by. Our vehicle lineup is also represented by a couple of race-inspired models with the Quadrifoglio nameplate.
