Auto Italia 2012

15 Apr


UPDATE: Apparently I didn’t include enough photos when I first posted this, so I’ve uploaded a few more (check out the slideshow).

Auto Italia is held annually in Canberra. It’s a free event, showcasing – surprise, surprise – Italian motorbikes, cars and scooters.

When the weather is as gorgeous as it was today, it makes sense to head along. The skies were blue and neverending, the sun was out (in contrast to yesterday’s miserable efforts) and the backdrops of Old Parliament House and Mt Ainslie (and Departments of Treasury and Finance, of course! Yup it was held in exactly the same place as Foreshore) were perfect for displaying all the sexy vehicles.

There was pretty much something for anyone. If you’re a car fanatic, there’s a LOT to keep you there for hours. If you’re not interested in cars at all, it was still a great opportunity to enjoy the weather, and you couldn’t help but admire (and covet!) the vehicles on display. I was pretty much blown away with how many Alfa Romeos there were, but disappointed with the number of classic cars. While I could count two each of Maseratis and Lamborghinis, there were more Ferraris than I could count.

There’s not much more I can say that can’t be better displayed in pictures, so here’s a slideshow!
