The Italian Grand Prix 2011's took l take place on Lake Como (Lago di Como) in the town of Cernobbio. The Grand Prix was three rounds of the UIM Class 1 World Powerboat Championship and ran from 14-16 October.

The announcement was of particular significance for Class 1 promoter Nicolò di San Germano - whose F1H2O series raced on Lake Como 11 times between 1981 and 2006 - marked the first new venue to be brought into the Championship by H2O Racing and the first ever round of the UIM Class 1 World Powerboat Championship to be staged on Lake Como. 'We are delighted to be taking our sport back to Lake Como and to Cernobbio with World Championship status,' he said. 'It is very fitting for us to be racing in such a spectacular location and one that is entrenched with powerboat history and associated with racers of both the past and the future of racing.'

The first time a Class 1 fleet graced the waters of Lake Como was in October, 1987 when the late Bruno Abbate organised a special race which was won by Adriano Panatta - a first career powerboat victory for the former Italian tennis champion
