RM Sotheby’s and Canossa Events announce partnership

Canossa Events has teamed with RM Sotheby's to grow its worldwide presence.

BLENHEIM, Ontario – RM Sotheby’s and Canossa Events announced a new partnership that will see the two organizations collaborate across the full spectrum of Canossa’s collector car events and activities. RM Sotheby’s is now the primary sponsor of all Canossa events and is the official auction partner.

RM Sotheby’s and Canossa have a long-standing relationship with RM having supported the Modena Cento Ore, one of Europe’s most exclusive and highly regarded historic motorsport events, for many years. From 2022, the partnership is elevated to new heights that will see the two companies collaborate on a global level as Canossa looks to expand its presence throughout Europe and the Middle East.

The new partnership will kick off in Palm Beach, Florida, the weekend of January 20-23, with the Cavallino Classic, an event that has been established for 42 years and which celebrates the beauty, speed, and history of the Ferrari marque. Canossa Events recently acquired the Cavallino Classic event, and this year is significant in that it is the 75th anniversary of the celebrated Maranello marque. Canossa will continue to build on the worldwide reputation of the Cavallino Classic, bringing new innovations and a distinctly Italian flair to the event. In addition, the Cavallino Classic event has expanded into Italy, with the Cavallino Classic Modena in July 2022, and the Cavallino Classic Middle East in December 2022.
