Switzerland may be Europe’s playground and the South of France its nightclub, but Italy is the continent’s hotbed of culture, romance and gelato – not to mention very fast cars.
Here are just a handful of Italian events this summer, in which you can indulge your more passionate side, including a special invitation for Victor members…

Mille Miglia14th – 17th May 2015 (Brescia, Lombardy)
The original Mille Miglia was a 1,000-mile one-day car race across Italy that was outlawed in 1957 following a total number of 60 deaths over its 30 year run. The rally has now been revived, albeit at a slower pace, and welcomes entries from the same vintage and classic car models that took part in the original runs.
