Casa Museo Enzo Ferrari
Modena has now opened a second museum dedicated to Enzo Ferrari the man who built one of the most iconic car in the world. The museum is just under 10 minutes walk from the station. Casa Enzo Natale museum stands where Enzo’s father rail carriage workshop once was. Also a new building has been designed by Kaplicky to replicate the yellow bonnet of a Ferrari car. Inside the museum you will find a collection of the the early cars that Enzo designed, built and raced, including a model of the very first car made by Enzo that did not have his name yet Auto Avio Costruzioni 815 used to race the Mille Miglia of 1940. You will also find Maserati and De Tomaso cars in the museum as these marques are also based in Modena (Maserati is actually across the road from the collection) and Enzo was able to inspire other super car builders in the area.
If you are in Modena for one day it is worth to say, that you can also visit at least 2 other museums dedicated to super car. From Modena it is possible to go to Maranello which is the home of Ferrari and on the way it is possible stop at the Panini Collection.
Mr Umberto Panini worked for Maserati as an Engineer and he is also the man behind the football stickers Panini and the organic parmesan farm Hombre. At the car museum it is possible to admire many piece of mechanical art from early Lamborghini and Maserati tractors to Maserati prototypes to military motorcycles and Lambretta tuned scooters, as well as bicycles and 50’s style petrol pumps.
Galleria Ferrari and Maranello.
Maranello is about 20 km from Modena, and it is the home of the Ferrari factory since the 1960. It is not actually possible to tour the production lines here as they are reserved only for the owner of the cars. However there is plenty to do here if you are interested in the red cars. First of all you can visit the Galleria Ferrari which is the official museum with collection of many F1 cars and upstairs you will find cars that Ferrari build such as the mighty F40.
