Concorso d'Eleganza

The city of Como just had their famous automotive concourse at the Villa d'Este. The event brings together the world’s top car designers and most wealthy collectors. The cars displayed here range from vintage prewar models through to concepts all with the picturesque villa gardens and Lake Como as a backdrop. I got a chance to tour the Villa d'Este grounds while visiting a friend working in Como at Mercedes Benz. Como is an amazing place especially for designers. The location is a source of inspiration in many ways because of its supernatural surroundings and its proximity to Milan, a major design, fashion and architecture hub. Anyways, I hope one day I’m in Como to see this amazing showing of cars.
