The Robert D. Cess Concorso d’Eleganza VII: Celebration of Italian Automotive Excellence


Event Description

In recognition of  Robert Cess, Marine Sciences Distinguished 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. The Concorso d’Eleganza is a display of art forms on wheels as a means of illustrating one form of Italian culture. Various Italian car and motorcycle clubs will be represented. 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. Participation and viewing is free and open to the public.

Sponsored by The Center for Italian Studies.

Owners of Italian automobiles interested in participating in this display, please contact Center for Italian Studies at 631-632-7444.

Special Note: 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 The Center for Italian Studies where any updates and last minute changes will be posted.
