FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX OF ITALY 2016
From 2 to 4 September 2016 the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Italy is back, a historic event that has always held at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza since 1922.
Monza is regarded by many as the embodiment of Formula One racing.
Not only is it a fantastic example of a track that combines speed with skill, it also has a heart and soul all of its own. It has seen some of the finest races of all time, but also some of the sport's worst accidents. The names of great drivers and the sounds of engines from years gone by linger in the grand old trees surrounding the track in the royal park.
Formula One racing visited the circuit as part of the inaugural season in 1950, and it has remained a permanent fixture on the calendar ever since.
Over that time, Monza has borne witness to an incredible list of historic moments, famous victories and horrifying crashes. All combine to make it one of the most magical places on the Formula One calendar. For many there is nowhere that encapsulates the sport better than this circuit. The Italians call it 'La Pista Magica', the magic track, a description few would disagree with.
The park of the Villa Reale with golf and polo grounds and a gallop racecourse is a popular week-end target of the Milanesi.
In the historic center of Monza is the cathedral with the impressive two-marble facade. The cathedral of Monza was built on the ruins of the ancient "Oracolum".
In the museum of the cathedral you can visit the Golden Crown Ferrea, a appreciated diadem from the Late Roman period.
