Fornella Restaurant was renewed in 2017 and today it is housing an exposition of photograps dedicated to the historical challenge of Prince Scipione Borghese, ancestor of the Borghese Cavazza Family.
The story tells that that, on January 31st 1907, the French Journal "Le Matin", issued a challenge: "Is there anyone who will undertake to travel this summer from Peking to Paris by automobile?". This announcement was received with enthusiasm: many wanted to show that cars, recently introduced as a means of transportation, can be a fast and reliable alternative to ferries or railways. After considering the obstacles spread along the 10.000 mile-long course, the race appeared impossible to undertake and many teams withdrew, leaving only five cars and their brave pilots to depart from Peking, on 10th of June. Prince Scipione Borghese stood out among them because he had chosen an Itala 35/45: a heavy, powerful and robust vehicle able to both overcome rough terrain and to gain high speed on easier conditions. This proved to be a wise choice, because Scipione, together with his trusted mechanic Ettore Guizzardi and the reporter Luigi Barzini, reached Paris in just 60 days, gaining three weeks of advantage over his adversaries.
