Bellissima! The Italian Automotive Renaissance, 1945–1975
Frist Center for the Visual Arts
May 27-October 9
Something's rolling into the Frist Center for the Visual Arts that you have to see. On display, from May 27th through October 9th, will be 19 automobiles and 3 motorcycles to showcase the style and creative innovation which characterized Italian vehicles during the post-World War II economic revival (1945-75). This magnificent exhibit will have car fans, and people of all ages, in awe at the innovation and design.
Just take a peek below at the beautiful crafted 1954 Alfa Romeo Bat 7, 1955 Chrysler Ghia Gilda, and 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO. Then, imagine what it would be like to see these works of art in person.
