The Rome Grand Prix (Italian: Gran Premio di Roma), also known as the Premio Reale di Roma (1925–1932) and Gran Premio di Roma (1947–1991), was an automobile race held in Rome, Italy from 1925 until 1991.
Through the years a number of different regulations and circuits were used, with the majority being Formula Two races at the ACI Vallelunga Circuit. In 1954 and 1963 the Rome Grand Prix was run to Formula One rules, but neither event was included in the World Championship.
In the late 2000s, plans were being made for a Rome Grand Prix to be added to the Formula One World Championship in 2013. A street circuit around the EUR district of Rome was to be the location of the race. However, speculation that the race would threaten the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, as well as a lack of support from local residents, led to the plans being abandoned in early 2011.
