The third day of the 1000 Miglia 2021 started at 6:15 am in Rome. It is a long step, which will drive the crews up to Bologna, covering more than 520 kilometers. After yesterday’s hot weather, this morning the temperature is still mild (21°) but the sun is already high: it’s going to be another typical summer day.
Leaving Rome, the convoy headed towards Umbria, first passing through Amelia and then Orvieto until Cortona, the city that hosts the artistic works of Beato Angelico and the marvellous Franciscan Hermitage “Le Celle”, one of the first Franciscan settlements chosen by Francessco d’Assisi back in 1211.
The crews will stop for lunch race in Arezzo, the city that gave birth to famous personalities such as Petrarca and Piero della Francesca.
