Perugia is renowned for its vast and rich historical and artistic heritage that Italy represents a real huge great treasure preserved in centuries of history. A city on a human scale surrounded by Etruscan walls in which you integrate a harmonious union between landscape and history.
On September 1st 2012 we missed Gianalberto D’Ammassa, founder and enthusiast organizer of Carovana Romantica.
At the beginning of 1981 he guessed that extraordinary fascination of making veteran and classic cars ride again on the streets and organized one of the first long distance rallies in Europe, called Carovana Romantica. We will always remember him as a friend and a mentor. Carovana goes on in his memory. Carovana Team would like to thank all friends and enthusiast owners for their messages from all over Europe.
