Cess Concorso

The Robert D. Cess Concorso d'Eleganza

Sunday, September 28, 2014
10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

You are invited to participate in the Center for Italian Studies at Stony Brook University Ninth Annual Celebration of Italian Vehicle Excellence and Beauty (a display of "art forms on wheels" as a means of illustrating one form of Italian culture). Various Italian vehicle groups will be represented.

Named in 2012 and hereafter The Robert D. Cess Concorso d'Eleganza in recognition of Dr. Robert D. Cess, Marine Science Professor Emeritus, Stony Brook University, whose interest in Italian automobiles, especially the Alfa Romeo, served as the inspiration and impetus for having this show initially and as a continuing annual campus event. This year, once again, The Concorso will be a Stony Brook University Homecoming (Wolfstock) Weekend Event.

Display vehicles will rally at the Stony Brook University campus on the lawn adjacent to the Graduate Physics Building and directly across from the Sports Complex off John S. Toll Drive. However, due to the possibility of unforeseen campus construction developments on campus, the location of this event may have to be changed to another campus site. Please consult the Center's web page, where any updates and last-minute changes will be posted.

Both Registration and Viewing are free and open to the public. Coffee/Breakfast refreshments will be served.
