[ Palazzo della Gran Guardia ]
Vernice & Benzina

A place rich with history and charm hosts the Motor Bike Expo gala evening. Every year, the Palazzo della Gran Guardia is the perfect location to meet during the opening evening of the event.

The impressive palace is situated in the most elegant area of the city of Verona: Piazza Bra, the same square as the Arena. The first floor becomes an elegant, world-class exhibition, equipped with a stage, cocktail bar, pop-up exhibitions by our partners, and unique motorcycles.

After the unveiling and presentation of the motorcycles present, the dining hall is opened, where the invited guests can enjoy a rich buffet.


The most influential and relevant personalities in the world of motorcycling participate in Vernice & Benzina; from company heads to riders, team managers, designers, organizers, and all those who represent the excellence of the two-wheel world.

An evening dedicated to relations and the pleasure of sharing an experience in a location where everyone is connected by the passion for motorcycles.


The partners who tie their initiatives to this event enjoy maximum visibility: banners inside and outside the venue, newsletters, sampling, and activities directed towards guests are just a few of the options which can be planned for the occasion.

Brands such as Red Bull, Metzeler, Motul and Virgin Radio have supported Vernice & Benzina with a variety of activities: presentations, cocktail bars, live music, gadgets, company testimonials…


The motorcycles that go on display at Vernice & Benzina are incredible works, dream pieces for enthusiasts, custom creations, the trusted machines of world champions, and bikes that have truly made history.

The event is often used as an elegant platform for the premier of new models and for special projects. These very models will then go on to be presented to the public at Motor Bike Expo.
