Among others, the ceremony saw the participation of the President of ACI Angelo Sticchi Damiani, the Mayor of Turin Ms. Chiara Appendino, and the President of the Italian National Olympic Committee Giovanni Malagò.
The exhibition included twelve jewels of the Italian automotive industry, each telling a piece of the history of Italian car manufacturing.
