OM469N (1922)
The museum is housed in an impressive, purpose-built building. Cars vary from the 1922 OM 469N (left) to a couple of recent Ferrari F1 cars (below left), via the unusually designed Legnano 6/8 HP of 1908 (below).

Fiat 130 Grand Prix (1907)
Lancia D24 (1953)
Cars from motorsport continue with a 1907 Fiat 130 Grand Prix (above) and a 1953 Lancia D24 from the Carrera Panamerica (above right). A Lambda chassis (right) shows the ground-breaking technology employed, whilst a tiny Temperino 8/10HP (below) from 1920 was one of the first microcars. A Fiat 8HP (below right) from 1901 is one of the oldest cars.

Cisitalia 202S MM Spider Nuvolari
Itala 35/45 (1907)
The beautiful Cisitalia 202S MM (above) has some aerodynamic similarities to the advanced Fiat Turbina (right). More unusual are the running boards on the Itala 35/45 HP (above right) from 1907, the car which completed the Paris-Peking rally of that year, and the rear of the 1926 Alfa Romeo RLSS (below right), obviously inspired by a boat.
