The Automezzi celebrates its 30th Anniversary in 2020 as the largest showcase of Italian exotics in the Rocky Mountain region.
However; this year has its challenges with the state restrictions around large gatherings. In order to celebrate our 30-year anniversary, continue raising funds for a local non-profit and comply with Covid-19 guidelines, we have reformatted the Automezzi (for this year only) in the spirit of a long cultural tradition in Italy called la Passeggiata.
La Passeggiata typically happens at the end of the day in Italy and lasts several hours. The Automezzi Passeggiata Live Broadcast Event will begin at the same time here in Colorado as la Passeggiata is taking place in Rome, Italy; which is 10am MST. La Passeggiata (known as the walk, stroll, promenade) is often the main social event of the day in Italy where the most important thing is simply seeing and being seen (vedere e farsi vedere). La Passeggiata will reinforce a sense of belonging, the greeting of friends and acquaintances, sharing of the latest news, products and services and most importantly showcasing those shining Italian exotics and raising awareness and much-needed funds for our benefactor Caruso Family Charities.
It’s our way of connecting everyone in the Italian Car & Motorcycle community, for this moment in time, in a virtual rally showcase (designed within social distancing guidelines) that will be broadcast live to our virtual spectators who can watch the event for FREE! The Automezzi virtual spectator can help pick the “People’s Choice” winners by tagging a favorite vehicle every time they donate to Caruso Family Charities leading up to or during the live broadcast (vote for all your favorites so they have a chance of winning).
How You Can Help
For every dollar donated, that vehicle will receive one point. The top 3 vehicles with the most points, who raise the most funds for CFC; will win the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards for People’s Choice so vote often and DONATE BIG to help both your favorite vehicles and Caruso Family Charities win! The first 100 donors over $75 (with or without tagging a vehicle) will receive a commemorative Automezzi XXX bandana as a thank you gift.
