What don’t Italians do well? Italian food is beyond delicious; Italian wines are full-bodied; Italian art has made the history books for centuries; Italian music gave us opera; Italians are renowned for being fantastic lovers…and Italian cars, with their sleek lines and purring engines, are unparalleled in the motor world.

If you can’t beat ’em (which you can’t; don’t even try), then join ’em: Head to Automezzi XVIII today at the Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design, 1600 Pierce Street in Lakewood, and ogle enough Vespas, Lambrettas, Aprilias, Moto Guzzis, Lamborghinis, Alfa Romeos, Ducatis, Ferarris, Pantecas, Lancias, Fiats and Maseratis to make you green with envy when you’re not swooning with desire. Food and vendors will also be on hand; entry is $5, free for kids under twelve. Visit or call 303-934-8679 for information. Bella!
