The concept of STACCO Experience was born from the desire to make it possible for others to experience the powerful emotions that real professional drivers feel. The aim is to curate an unforgettable and fun adventure with other entertaining driving activities and the breathtaking beauty, quality and comfort only Italy can provide.

Essentially, it’s about giving this exclusive access to those who want to immerse themselves in a daydream for several days. We believe that this type of event is really outside the norm of organized travel, since it combines unique passions and extraordinary experiences. In fact, the term STACCO, in Italian, translates to “break away”. On top of that, the term STACCO also means “detach” racing terms – detaching from the opponents, and creating a gap because one is faster than the others. This perfectly summarizes the mentality of STACCO: to excel with respect for others… Then again, in a race, when you engage in very strong braking in a thrown lap, it is said that you make a “staccata” literally, going to the edge of the grip. The point is, whichever way you choose to look at it, these are all courageous actions that generate strong emotions.
And what better location than Italy? It’s a fantastic country where history, food, passion and elegance are all part of key aspects with the same goal: that of excellence.

This is exactly what defines STACCO and what we want to share with our guests: racing, speed and being number one – yet always with elegance.
