Snapshot, 1950: A glass of Aperol, Signorina...?


While the bar of the venerable Villa d’Este grand hotel resembles a beehive during the Concorso d’Eleganza, the lady in this snapshot from 1950 has her own personal waiter…
Nowhere else in the world is the interplay of light and shadow as glamorous as it is at Villa d’Este, on the shoreline of Lake Como. Here, a waiter serves an Aperol spritz to a woman sat by the window, her attention momentarily drawn away from watching the sun bouncing off the lake’s surface – or perhaps observing a group of industrialists alight from a Riva onto the grand hotel’s private jetty.
This weekend, however, the grounds of the Villa d’Este grand hotel will not be quite so tranquil, as the international classic car scene meets for the Concorso d’Eleganza once again. Classic Driver will be on the ground to examine the most beautiful entries – but don’t worry, we’ll also find time to sample this year’s Aperol spritz…
