Casa Belvedere on Staten Island NYC to Host “Festa D’Italia / Motori D’Italia” Annual Weekend Italian Festival & Car Show on September 26th & 27th
Two days of fun for the whole family and an incredible showcase of some of the most recognized Italian performance and luxury autos
The Italian Cultural Foundation at Casa Belvedere will host its Annual Motori D’Italia/Festa D’Italia, our signature event and biggest fundraiser of the year. This Italian Car Show and Festival will be showcased on Casa Belvedere’s two acre grounds, highlighting both classic and modern Italian motor vehicles of all kinds. In addition to the exhibition, there will be fine food, a café, continuous entertainment, crafts and games for children and much, much more. The exquisite mansion known as Casa Belvedere is located atop picturesque Grymes Hill with spectacular views of The Verrazano Bridge and New York Harbor as its backdrop.
Every year this very popular, signature event – run by volunteers of the Northeast Car Club headed by Matt Ligotti – brings over 5,000 visitors from the NY Metro, Tri-State area. In fact, we are proud to report that Motori D’Italia has become one of the most well attended and popular car show events in the Northeast Area, garnering widespread coverage in the media as well.
“We are delighted to once again offer this exclusively Italian showcase, which annually pays tribute to some of the auto industry’s greatest marquees,” said Michael Pucciarelli, one of the Motori D’Italia chairpersons. The display will provide an opportunity to get a close-up look at some of the most distinctive — new and classic – Italian performance and luxury automobiles, such as Alfa Romeos, Ferraris, Fiats, Lamborghinis, and Maseratis.
Festa D’Italia, will feature continuous music and live entertainment by some of today’s young new talent as well as seasoned performers singing traditional Italian and American favorites. During the festivities there will also be Italian specialty foods and pastries, wine tasting, exhibits, culinary demonstrations, games, crafts, raffles and more.
