The 2023 edition of The I.C.E. — International Concours of Elegance — St. Moritz is over. An intense two-day kermesse, held on the frozen surface of the Alps’ most glamorous lake, which brought a dreamy parterre of 48 between classic and classic racing cars surrounded with a breathtaking atmosphere, appreciated by more of 11.000 people including drivers, collectors, enthusiasts, public and media from all over the world.

The I.C.E. St. Moritz is an automotive event really like no other. Dozens of incredible one-of-a-kind cars on an atypical white canvas which creates a unique scenario for them to be observed, admired and felt. Not only, the aforementioned cars turn their engine on and lap around the frozen lake. Sideways. A true feast of everyone’s eyes.

Watching the cars over the snow, without any distracting element one would find on the road, recreates the effect a designer achieves by drawing an automobile on a white sheet of paper.
