Great Success For The 34th Edition Of Valli E Nebbie 2024

History on four wheels. From the Castle to the sea, the ‘Valli e nebbie’ parade

The 34th edition of “Valli e Nebbie”, the flagship event of the Club Officina Ferrarese, inaugurated the fourth season of ASI Circuito Tricolore, an initiative of the Automotoclub Storico Italiano sponsored by the Ministries of Culture and Transport, ANCI, Città dei Motori, Stati Generali del Patrimonio Italiano and FIVA which develops in a calendar of 18 events aimed at the knowledge and valorisation of the territories through dynamic historical motoring.

The colors of passion – and of a spring that suddenly blossomed – combined with the roar of the history of motoring returned among the most evocative glimpses of Ferrara in the event which took place from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th April. The program, as usual, combined passion for motoring, valorisation of Ferrara’s typical features and culture in the strict sense. So much so that, after the technical checks on Friday afternoon in Piazza Castello, the almost one hundred crews present were accompanied on a guided tour of the Escher exhibition at Palazzo dei Diamanti.

The next day, the route of the first stage took the long caravan of historic cars to Masi Torelli and Migliarino, to then enter the itinerary of the Comacchio Valleys and reach the Lido degli Estensi and Comacchio, the “little Venice”. The return to Ferrara, after approximately 130 kilometers between land and water, took place crossing Lagosanto, Fiscaglia and the metaphysical Tresigallo.

The second stage on Sunday 7 April saw the passage through the fascinating Piazza Ariostea, with the dispute of some precision tests set up on the oval which hosts the traditional Palio di Ferrara. Then head towards Bondeno to visit the Pilastresi water pump. Delizia Estense della Diamantina for the stamp control and finally the car parade in Ferrara in Piazza Trento Trieste between two wings of crowd and under a warm and bright sun.

The array of cars at the start did not disappoint expectations, with examples built between 1925 and the 1970s, confirming the “Valli e Nebbie” among the most important events of the Ferrara spring, attracting enthusiasts and the public. At the end of the 17 skill tests undertaken over the two days, Andrea Camosci and Alice Casellato on the 1959 Austin Healey Sprite, Alessandro Virzì and Valentino Poddi on the 1960 Austin Healey Sprite and Christian Roncolato and Ines Hustik on the 1965 Lancia Fulvia Coupé took to the podium. Best “lady” behind the wheel Federica Ameglio on a 1959 Triumph TR3 and best “young driver” Manuel Roncolato on a 1965 Austin Healey MK III.
