Piacenza Expo proposes the first edition of VIA EMILIA CLASSIC, which gathers and relaunches the 30-year tradition of trade shows in Piacenza. So here it is, that from October 15 to 16, 2022, the Piacenza Fairgrounds will host the different souls of a national trade show event capable of attracting thousands of visitors who are passionate about automobile and motorcycle themes in all their declinations. The show boasts the patronage of Destinazione Turistica Emilia.

Via Emilia Classic is a showcase for dealers and traders, restorers and coachbuilders. A trade show will be held at the same time where collectors and parts dealers will offer a catalog of unobtainable parts for the most prestigious brands. Via Emilia Classic will also host associations and societies linked by a common motoring passion: from the manufacturer to the type of vehicle to rally memorabilia.

Live demos will allow the public of enthusiasts to try their hand, under the auspices of the Piacenza Automotoveicoli d’Epoca Club, at a specially prepared match racing circuit. The city center will see the passage of vintage vehicles heading to the fairgrounds on the occasion of the National Vintage Vehicle Day promoted by ASI scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 16. As well as some road education routes will find, in Hall 2, the Italian Motorcycle Federation as the protagonist of awareness campaigns aimed at younger people. FMI will also be active for a motorcycle rally that will stop at the fairgrounds. Among the photographic exhibitions there will be a dedicated one to the Ferrari’s myth: “Un promettente insuccesso – Ferrari 75” for the 75th anniversary of the first race held precisely in Piacenza by a car from the Maranello company, the 125 S piloted by Franco Cortese.

A weekend, therefore, of history, style, meetings and occasions. The Via Emilia is passionately told through the engines and objects of today and yesterday. There will be no shortage, in Italy’s Food Valley, of a Trattoria Emiliana revisited in a Street Food key to bring out the still relevant sense of an Emilia destination that produces an enviable quality of life and a significant induced activity linked to the tradition of motors and good food.

Admission: €10.00 at the box office. Tickets can be purchased online at and through the VivaTicket circuit taking advantage of the €9 reserved price.
