Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari – Museum Honoring the Birthplace of Enzo Ferrari

By - March 15th, 2012

The Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari in Modena, Italy, the birthplace of Enzo Ferrari, opened to its first visitors on March 10th, 2012 to honor the life and work of the man who founded the world-renowned Italian sportscar. The new museum complex began with the restoration of the house where Ferrari was born, which later served as both his living quarters and workshop, and continued with the creation of a futuristic automotive design gallery topped with a yellow, arched aluminum roof painted to match his Prancing Horse trademark. All together, the 54,000 square foot museum represents the life story, passion, beauty, innovation, and speed of Ferrari and the pride his city feels for him. The complex was designed and imitated by famous architect Jan Kaplicky and was finished by his former colleague, Andrea Morgante, after his sudden passing back in January 2009. All told, the $23 million price tag is well deserved by the man who helped to make Modena the centerpiece of a dream come true. via: Autoblog
