3rd Memorial Fratelli Benetello by Club Alfisti Veneto

⁷The “Memorial Fratelli Benetello”, reaching its third edition during the weekend of 22-23 June 2019, was born to honour the passion that bound the brothers Nereo and Tiziano Benetello to the Alfa Romeo brand.

Shorter, as it seemed to only last for a blink of an eye.

Giulia Quadrifoglio Owners Meeting in Boxberg.

When 18 Giulia Quadrifoglios meet… you know it’s going to be an intense and thrilling Italian day.     Big Alfa Romeo or even general car meetings are exciting, there are a lot of awesome cars about and you don’t know where to look first. I love it when you get bombarded with all kind of sensorial informations and overwhelmed with visual impressions. But if you want to experience more than just visual...
