Coppa Ciano

The Coppa Ciano was an automobile race held in Italy.

Since the first competition, the sport of motor racing in Italy proved very popular. During the years immediately following World War I several road circuits were created. Notable among these was the Montenero circuit at Livorno, which became home for the Coppa Ciano from its inauguration in 1921 until 1939.

Italian Hall of Fame driver, Tazio Nuvolari won this race five times, more than any other driver.
