2018 PVGP Italian Cortile


Each year the Cortile selects a marque or model to highlight for the annual event based upon factors such as historical significance, unique local interest, brand resurgence, etc. The Macchina of Alfa Romeo have been selected as our 2019 Proiettore Macchina! The Rivolta family has been involved in scooters, motorcycles, sports cars, grand touring cars, as well as yachts and the automotive design house Zagato. The event is being hosted by Three Rivers Alfisti and  is perhaps the most centralized of any previous convention; It’s located with 500 miles of 2/3 of the population of the North America and over 20 Alfa Romeo Chapters. Click here for a detailed schedule.


The Italian Cortile History

At 2008 running of The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, “All Italian Cars” were featured as the “Marque of the Year” We had an overwhelming response! But there was no local car club and no local dealers to manage an all Italian car show.


So, as a direct result, in 2009 the PVGP introduced “The Cortile”: a very unique, opulent area befitting the gorgeous Italian gems that participate. The Cortile is a PVGP run event and not a club event which makes it rather unique from many of the other car shows that occur over the Grand Prix weekend.

The Cortile is a two day car show of All Italian cars, all makes and ages are welcome. Be sure to Marque your calendar and come and enjoy the weekend at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix overlooking the International car show on the Schenley Park Golf Course. It should be a spectacular weekend.
