Inside Modena’s Museum Dedicated To Enzo Ferrari

Nestled within the quaint town of Modena is a fitting tribute to Enzo Ferrari, the founder of one of the most iconic automakers in history.

Dubbed Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari, the expansive and ultra-modern building is sited on the land where Enzo was born to Alfredo and Aldagisa Ferrari. While the museum is dominated by a bright yellow building far removed from the historical surrounding houses, Museo casa also includes the original workshop of Alfredo Ferrari, which has been renovated and houses a number of classic Ferrari models and most importantly, dozens of rare engines created by the Italian automaker.

Once inside this so-called engine museum, one is welcomed by two arguably priceless Ferraris: the first ever car produced by the firm, the 125 S, as well as the first Ferrari race car to win a Formula One World Championship. Surrounding this fabulous duo are engines from the likes of the F40, F50 and Enzo alongside numerous prototype engines which never reached production, including a radical three-cylinder.

Also on display in Alfredo’s former workshop is a Ferrari 360 race car, an exemplary GTO Evoluzione which went on to spawn the 288 GTO, a 1985 F1 car and its 2009 counterpart as well as the 2003 Le Mans class-winning 575 GTC.

Moving to the new museum building represents a shift to Ferrari’s greatest road cars and in particular, those that have starred in successful Hollywood films and TV shows. During our visit, a baby blue 1959 250 GT Berlinettta greeted visitors as did a stunning silver Daytona Spyder.

The pillar-less room offers uninterrupted views of all models displayed, including the likes of Fernando Alonso’s very own LaFerrari, a Rosso Corsa Enzo and an F40, among others.

All in all, the museum is a must visit for any tourists or locals to Modena and manages to capture the passion that goes into creating every car adorned with the famed Prancing Horse badge.
