The Amici della Targa Florio Cultural Association, for the day of Monday 21 October, at 19.00, organized a meeting for enthusiasts, absolutely informal, in memory of Pucci Spatafora, a recently deceased Palermo gentleman driver.

The meeting will be hosted in the rooms of the Historical Museum of Motors and Mechanisms – University Museum System – Engineering Department – Viale delle Scienze – Building 8 – Machines. Images of Pucci Spatafora will be proposed during the eight editions of Targa Florio to which he has continuously participated, from 1970 to 1977, and his co-pilots of the time will be present to comment on them, telling the stories, episodes and anecdotes of those races, often never reported in the chronicles of those years. Furthermore, the presence of a sports car will remember Pucci Spatafora and his never-ending passion for racing. A nice movie on the Targa Florio 1973, the last one valid for the "World Championship", on days of free practice, official practice and race will conclude the meeting.
