The Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari in Modena is a great building complex which fuses history and innovation, as the most famous car racing stable in the world does with its creations. It has only recently been opened.
In the humble brick built house where a part of the Museum is collocated, Enzo Ferrari was born in 1898. He was the son of Alfredo, who already had a machine shop. The whole visit is organized in multimedia installations which tell the story of the legendary car maker. An exciting tour to discover someone whose motto was: «I am one who dreamt to be Ferrari!».
Around his birthplace is the ultramodern edifice, designed by Jan Kaplicky and Andrea Morgante, and inspired by the form of a bonnet, entirely painted in yellow, the colour of the Ferrari symbol.
Under the extraordinanary roof, you can admire true works of art, numerous cars which tell the story of the motor-works, from the beginning to the innumerable successes in Formula One. There are also Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Stanguellini, De Tomaso and Pagani, brands linked to the one the Museum is dedicated to.
From 2014, the Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari is directed by the Ferrari factory itself, so the interior has been completely renewed.
The Museum (which covers more than 6000 square metres) frequently houses temporary events and exhibitions, so that the principal collection itself is always changing.
The possibility to combine this ticket with the one for the Museum in Maranello (where the car factory still is) makes the Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari in Modena an obligatory stop for car fans.
