Tutto Italiano at Larz Anderson Museum today, recap

The Italians were out in force on the lawns of Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline, MA for the annual Tutto Italiano show that happens every year in August on the sprawling estate. Today's contestants included Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis and some luscious Alfa Romeos. There were the odd English entrants (a few McLarens were on display) and there even was a Dutch beauty that went by the name of Spyker. By way of telling a story with pictures, here is the 2016 Tutto Italiano, as seen through my eye and my lens ...

The English are here too, with their McLarens, perhaps as nice to drive as the Italians, but not as nice to behold

And one last Ferrari, a 458
