During the four-day event, Auto e Moto d'Epoca will showcase the greatest tribute of the year to Italian creativity and style in the world of engines.

From Thursday 20th to Sunday 23rd October 2022, the Padua-based trade show will become a time machine dedicated to Italian brilliance. Eagerly awaited are some of the most beautiful cars of all time, including the Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 in its various models, and economy cars which have changed the history of the industry, such as Derosa's Topolino and Fiat 500.

Now, as in the past, the 'status' of these two models was different; however, in terms of creativity, they were equally innovative at the time. A Touring car body combined with the Superleggera method: a tubular structure deriving from the aeronautical industry with exquisite attention to the details and lines of the car body. The combination of elegance and innovation has produced some of the most beautiful cars of the last 90 years, in addition to innumerable racing successes.

The impact that the FIAT 500 has had is the same − albeit on the opposite end of the automotive arc. To date, the FIAT 500 is one of the best-recognised symbols of the 'Made in Italy' brand; it was the family car of entire generations and it also happens to be a small miracle of design. Engineer Derosa revolutionised the internal position of the engine components in order to fit them in the little 500, leaving more space in the cabin and enhancing the driving experience.

Every year, Auto e Moto d'Epoca is the meeting point for these and many other gems crafted in Italy: the exhibition is a four-day review of Italian design and brilliance like no other in the world.
