Emilio Villoresi, known as "Mimi", born in Milan on December 17, 1913, was an Italian race car driver. Emilio comes from a well-known family in Milan, he was the fourth of five children, the third was the famous Gigi Villoresi with whom he shared a passion for engines. He was his navigator at the beginning of his career: the two brothers took part in the 1000 Miglia in 1935 and 1936 with a Fiat 508 Balilla Sport. They then bought a Maserati, which they drove in turns. Emilio's results were such as to give him the wheel of an Alfa Romeo of the Scuderia Ferrari for the 1937 season. On June 28, 1939 he tragically died on the Monza circuit, testing an Alfa Romeo Alfetta.
We'll publish a biography on him on the occasion of his anniversary or when it will be reached a sufficient number of cars.
