the pedestrian area in the centre of Lugano will once again host  Lugano Elegance, a Concours d'Elegance for classic cars and an international rendez-vous for the most iconic classic cars,  with an aim to being among the most important European classic car events.

Lugano Elegance is another idea of Lions Club Monteceneri who, for a number of years, has organised a regularity rally called Lions in Classic.  Fifty selected classic cars will aim for the "best of show" trophy. The trophy is an exclusive creation of Marco Pagot, the worldwide known designer of two of the best loved Italian cartoon’s characters Calimero, the black flea and Grisù, the aspiring firefighter baby drake.
