WMIDO - Milano Eyewear Show - February 4-5-6 - 2023

Galileo is the main sponsor of Trofeo Nord-Ovest

July 27 2019

Speed, precision and technology are the three distinguishing features of car racing that make it an exciting and entertaining sport for a broad and universal target. Also ophthalmology is characterized by continuous and fast technological innovations that make it possible to develop new solutions and to create last generation lenses and treatments, which combine the maximum visual comfort with high-end technical and aesthetic features.

Galileo has as always committed to the “dépistage” of visual wellness and this year the company is supporting Valsangone Promotion, by sponsoring the 5th edition of Trofeo Nord-Ovest with the main objective to promote good vision and its positive impact on road safety. Galileo will reward 12 “drivers” with 12 pairs of monofocal or progressive, clear or photochromic Transitions Xtractive lenses, featuring the Neva Max UV Night Drive Boost: the premium non-glare treatment for driving that reduces night dazzle. Thanks to its anti-glare, antistatic, waterproof and oleo-phobic properties, it facilitates lens cleaning, provides a clear vision during the day and optimizes night vision performance, especially while driving. As a matter of fact, when we drive eyes undergo a continuous stress due to lights, reflections, bad weather conditions and fast changes in focusing. Galileo Night Drive Boost lenses with Reflect Control Technology protect eyes from night dazzle, improving vision.

A good vision plays a vital role in quality of life and it has a huge impact on road safety. For pilots and drivers it becomes a fundamental requirement.

The race - organized by Piacenza Vintage Cars Club - will take place on Sunday July 28th in Bobbio. It is the 5th of Trofeo Nord-Ovest nine stages that cross four Italian regions (Aosta Valley, Piedmont, Lombardy and Emilia Romagna), starting from Vizzola Ticino (VA) and ending in Casale Corte Cerro/Omegna (VB). The final award ceremony will take place in February 2020 on the occasion of Automotoretrò – International Vintage Cars Exhibition - at Lingotto Fiere in Turin.
