The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este is an event organized since 1929 by Grand Hotel Villa d’Este in Cernobbio on Lake Como.

The awards are divided in thematic trophies; the selection of the participants and of the winners is made by an international team of judges: for who participates there is no car that should be on the second place!

But the true sparkle of the event that takes place in late spring in Cernobbio, is the luxury and the charm that this ambient and these cars attract: collectors, business men, artists and VIP coming from all over the world walk on the red carpets of Villa d’Este and Villa Erba making every year the Concorso d’Eleganza always more amazing.

Looking around, walking around the marvelous gardens of Villa d’Este, that reach the water of Lake Como, you can’t find an extreme and almost alien luxury; between the cars, cheers and shaking-hands, you can easy feel the real and sincere passion for this world, made by vehicles, bodies and engines.
