CIRCUITO DELLE TRE PROVINCE (EMILIA/TOSCANA)
Description Street circuit used from 1929 to 1931. It was divided into three different provinces (Bologna, Pistoia, Modena), and this is the reason of its name.

On these roads in 1987 Lima-Abetone hillclimb was organized. It should have been raced on August 30th on a 12 km track, but few days before the race Prefetto of Pistoia (local autorithy about public safety) didn’t allow the race because of safety of spectators.
