Sunday, September 9
10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

You are invited to participate in the Center for Italian Studies at Stony Brook University Thirteenth 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.

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

Owners of Italian vehicles interested in participating in this display are asked to register by completing the information called for on the form below and returning it as soon as possible to one of the addresses noted on the form.
