In an era of modern museums—the Guggenheim and Getty in America, Tate Modern in London, and the Pompidou Center in Paris—the Museo Mille Miglia is a throwback to a much earlier time.
Originally a monastery built more than 1,000 years ago, the modern-day Mille Miglia Museum stands on the grounds of the Sant’Eufemia della Fonte monastery in Brescia, Italy. It seems appropriate for the history of the “most beautiful race in the world” to be housed in this beautiful, pastoral setting.
One of the first cars you encounter is this 1929 Fiat 509 Bateau, capable of hitting 80 kmph/50 mph.
This 1948 Fiat 1100 Marsala is a direct descendent of the pre-war Fiat 508 C Balilla.
