From October 13 to 15, Villa La Massa, a Medici-era architectural gem surrounded by ten hectares of tranquil grounds, a few miles from central Florence, will become a gathering place for supercar collectors. During Villa La Massa Excellence, motoring supremacy blends with local culinary excellence and high-level hospitality, all in Villa La Massa style. Let’s not forget that Gregory Peck, Winston Churchill, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton have all stayed under this historic roof, and David Bowie and Iman even celebrated their wedding here.
Sign up for the full package, which includes a two-night stay in a double exclusive room, with use of the Arno Spa facilities and a complimentary shuttle service into Florence; American breakfast at the scenic Il Verrocchio restaurant; welcome drinks and dinner at Villa La Massa on the Friday; all-day access to the car show on the Saturday, including poolside brunch and an afternoon car parade on the grounds, followed by a gala dinner and awards ceremony for the finest cars in show at Michelin-star restaurant Atto di Vito Mollica in central Florence; and a Sunday morning drive through the Chianti countryside, visiting the Tenuta del Palagio winery and a farewell lunch at celebrity poet-butcher Dario Cecchini’s beloved Antica Macelleria in picturesque Panzano in Chianti.
Saturday 14 October will see the cast-iron gates of the 13th-century property open to a discerning public as car enthusiasts experience a showcase of iconic collectors’ Youngtimer supercars dating from the Nineties to the 2000s. Beauty and elegance will go hand in hand as guests experience the captivating riverside setting, the finest hospitality and all the glamour and magic of supercars.
