Big steps towards the new adventure! The program of the new Queens’ Cavalcade 2017 is taking shape, it is to be held in Italy next September from the 19th to the 24th and, as each spring, many confirmations flourish after last year’s major success Acerbis through the prestigious clothing brand Ottano confirms the partnership with our event. Ottano is a new line of high-end clothing, wanted by Acerbis and dedicated to the crossover, café racer and scrambler, it is characterized by a minute attention to details and the use of original techniques and high quality materials. Since always Acerbis is careful to dress riders with specific protections for different off-road disciplines and driving; the new brand comes close to a more trendy style, adapting to new driving styles of café racers, of scramblers but also of crossovers, according an attentive perspective to aesthetics, to get the perfect fit without neglecting protection. The same word Ottano immediately recalls the world of motorsport, and internationalism of this passion: ‘Ottano’ is a common word in many languages. Just like our Queens’ Cavalcade which seeks to unite style and international passion for motors, beyond the territorial and linguistic boundaries. And speaking of territory and routes, now revealed in detail, is confirmed the recognition of Queens Cavalcade by ENIT, Italian Government Tourist Board and sponsored by the Municipality of Montepulciano, which will host for one of our stages. In fact in Montepulciano we’ll get up to the famous Piazza Grande, a square that, beyond its architectural beauty given by historical buildings designed by the leading architects of the Renaissance, has a huge stage that rises just above the level of the square itself, where the audience is: the stage is the church and the bottom is the rough facade of the Cathedral itself. And how not to stop at this gem at least for lunch time, experiencing the imposing fortress that after various levels of restoration today has been set to the seat of the University of Kennesaw Yowa and the operational offices of Consorzio del Vino Nobile. And speaking of wine, it is impossible to pass from Montepulciano and not visit the Monumental Cellars that represent the subsoil of the city itself, under the decking of squares, streets, alleys; on the soles of Renaissance palaces, beneath the monuments! From Piazza Grande starts a network of monumental structures that haìve even been movie sets for their extraordinary beauty. A stop in Montepulciano to celebrate the beautiful and the good of a prestigious product like wine and the territory and the town that produces it.
