In 1984, the region received the denomination D.O.C.G., the highest honor and recognition for quality Italian wines.

A whopping $1.2 Mille-ion bid
In 2009, a 1937 Alfa Romeo 2300MM was sold on eBay for $1.2 million. Wondering how this antique ride fetched such a high price? Well, the Alfa was once owned by Mussolini, the fascist dictator who was executed by his own people in 1945. Plus, the vehicle was raced in the 1937 Mille Miglia, driven by Mussolini's personal chauffeur. Who also happened to be his cousin. So it seems we can add nepotism to this Italian dictator's list of misdeeds.
