MiMo 2022 was inaugurated today at 10 am, the open-air exhibition that can be visited free of charge by the public, which will end on Sunday 19 June. The go-ahead was given by the President of the event Andrea Levy, who in the Piazza Duomo of the Lombard capital cut the ribbon in front of the representatives of the political institutions, the car and motorcycle manufacturers present and all the other partners of the event. The most spectacular moment of the first day of MiMo, however, is on the agenda today at 7 pm with the Premier Parade, or the parade of news and previews that will be led directly by the representatives or testimonials of the manufacturers on a short “circuit” around the Milan Cathedral.
Cars and motorcycles are exhibited in the city center every day of the event until 11pm in a motor racing “quadrilateral” between Piazza del Duomo, via Montenapoleone, via Dante, via Mercanti and Piazza Cordusio. In the area of the Palazzo Sforzesco, on the other hand, a route has been set up on which those in possession of the MiMo Pass, which can be requested on the website milanomonza.comthey can try – between 9 and 19 on opening days – some new four-wheelers mainly with low or zero emissions, in the case of 100% electric models.

A consistent number of car manufacturers among those operating in our market participate in Mimo 2022. Many but not all. About fifty brands are officially present but there are also no well-known names such as Abarth, BMW / Mini / Rolls Royce, Ford, Jaguar / Land Rover, Renault / Dacia / Alpine, Maserati, Subaru, Tesla, Volvo and the whole VW group with the exception of Bentley and Lamborghini. Among the cars that can be driven on the test track there are some absolute firsts such as the Alfa Romeo Tonale and the electric Nissan Ariya and the main “green” models of Citroën, DS, Fiat, Jeep, Honda, Hyundai, Mazda, Opel and Peugeot.

To be able to enter for free, you must be in possession of the MiMo Pass. In the pits of the structure will be set up by the participating brands to present the novelties, but parades of supercars and hypercars, also belonging to collectors, and other dynamic activities on the track organized by the car manufacturers and brand clubs are scheduled. In particular, on Saturday 18 June, between 11 and 17, the cars participating in the fourth stage of the historic 1000 Miglia will pass by, with a timed test, heading towards the finish line in Brescia.
