We had the honor and the pleasure of being involved in this prestigious event that took place on 8th March 2018 in Milan.
The occasion was the event called “Tempo di Libri”, where, at the same time, the friends of C.M.A.E. organized a beautiful, relevant event.
Twenty-five vintage jewelry, created during the D'Annunzio period between the early 1900s and 1935, were displayed at the Military Command of the 1st Air Region of Milano Linate Airport. After a lunch offered to press and participants, cars left for the city, not before receiving a valuable pair of driving gloves as a gift, made exclusively by our factory.
Covering a route that wound through Viale Forlanini, Corso XXII Marzo, Via Visconti di Modrone, Corso Monforte, Piazza San Babila, Corso Matteotti, Via San Pietro all'Orto and Via Pietro Verri, the cars went to the center of the Fashion District, where they arrived around 4:00 pm. The Air Force Brass Band, located at the intersection of Via Sant'Andrea and Via Montenapoleone, gave them a warm welcome.
Later, the journalist and historian Giordano Bruno Guerri held a press conference at the Larusmiani showroom in Via Verri 5, in memory of Gabriele D'Annunzio's Flight to Vienna (August 9, 1918), joined by General Silvano Frigerio, Commander of the 1st Air Region of Combat Forces Command of the Italian Air Force.
On this occasion, all those present were lucky enough to admire a historical photo of the time, as a proof of D’Annunzio’s venture, as well as his personal bag.
The gloves made specifically for the event and donated to all the drivers who attended the event.
