An epic that has become legendary, that of the Florios, a family of entrepreneurs who gained fame and admiration in Europe and the Mediterranean, so powerful in the international economic world that they deserved respect and consideration from the ruling houses and the most noble dynasties of rich, noble and industrial Europe. A story that is intertwined between the Florios' pioneering ability to seize the moment of an era that was approaching modernity and cultivate the revolutionary idea of ​​bringing together many worlds through a car race that for the first time attracted the noblesse and the crowned heads from all over Europe at the start of a sporting event, which over time has become the oldest race in the world: the "Targa Florio". A name, an event which not only testifies to the evolution of a century of motoring and, therefore, of the technologies linked to the development of an industrial sector which has profoundly changed man's life and his mobility, but which has represented history and the culture of a territory which, through the Targa Florio, experienced its maximum splendor but also, in some phases, a slow decline. Historical courses and recurrences, linked to a symbolic place of rare beauty, the Madonie, today the heart of a large natural park which, under the aegis of UNESCO, protects its extraordinary rarities, honors its peculiarities, reminding the world how much these mountains are precious.
