Rally Storico Due Valli

If you were in Piazza Bra yesterday afternoon you would have seen the start of the "Due Valli" classic car rally race on the hills around Verona.
I liked this Fiat 124 Abarth more than the Porsches... My husband used to have one: I loved to drive in this car: it made any places we visited more romantic and added a special quality to my memories.

That is a beautiful car.

And the Piazza Bra never fails to impress me. I love the blue sky and the soft lights in the background.

Wow, this photo screams "Italy!," and it is so full of life. I love that the man can be seen looking around in the car, the evening blue of the sky, the pattern of the paving stones of the piazza, the arena and its lighted arches. What fun to rekindle your happy memories of driving your husband's car like this. My dad had a sports car this size and as a child I used to tuck back behind between my parents in the two seats for trips up California's highway 101 to see my grandparents. We loved that car, but it wasn't practical and our hair would get pretty messy after a few hours with the top off if we forgot our scarves.
