Victory Cup

October 31st 2009
Arcoveggio Racecourse, Bologna


On the centenary celebrations for the Physics Nobel Prize award to Guglielmo Marconi horse racing has decided to pay its tribute to the scientist. This year the famous Victory Cup (Gran Premio della Vittoria), an important trotting race, was in fact dedicated to the illustrious Bolognese citizen.

One of the races was named after the town of Sasso Marconi. The winner Nerviano, a racehorse owned by Borsari stable, was awarded by mayor Stefano Mazzetti a marconian silver medal offered by the G. Marconi Philatelic Club.

Sasso Marconi Town Hall organised a buffet of local delicatessen (wine, olive oil and elderberry syrup) which was served near the course. Information flyers on Sasso Marconi events were distributed at the venue.
