The Memorial Angelo and Pietro Barbetti has been the "mundane" event of the Luigi Fagioli Trophy since the Nineties. A tribute by the Organizer Committee to the city of Gubbio, to the essence of motorsport ( in fact, the award is given to a national or international figure of great importance in motorsport) and to the passion of the figures to whom it is dedicated, given that the Barbetti family is historically linked to the hill climb and to the world of city sport in general.
