Historic 1920s 1950s Italian Race Car Show The California Mille | Nob HillThe 25th annual California Mille will bring 67 historic cars from all over the world to San Francisco to salute Italy’s most famous open road race, the Mille Miglia. See the biggest free car show of its kind in America, meet the drivers, and enjoy live Italian music on Mason Street between Sacramento and California Streets from 12 noon until 4 pm on Sunday, April 26, 2015.

On Monday morning, April 27, Italian Consul General Mauro Battocchi will wave the Italian flag by the partenza (departure) arch spanning Mason Street, signaling the start of a four-day, thousand-mile drive–not a race–that celebrates the spirit of the original event with “important cars, little roads and wonderful friends.”
