Description: Milano: Electa, 2012. 30 x 24cm., hardcover, 128pp., 200 illus., many in color. Italian-English text. Summary: The museum complex aims to celebrate the world of motor-racing and tells the story of a man who not only became a famous personality, but also drove and built racing cars. The museum has been created by restoring the house in Modena where Enzo Ferrari was born in 1898. Not only has the residential part of the building survived intact but also the workshop. We can see the famous yellow aluminum roof imitating the hood of a car. This colour, always associated with the city of , was chosen by Enzo Ferrari as the background for the ‘cavallino’, trade-mark of the company that bears his name. A monument to the dialog between past and present, enthusiasm and creativeness, research and innovation, courage and challenge; the Museum confirms its identity, associating the daring of its architectural design with the age-old fascination of the dream-cars that it has been created to preserve.
