Autodromo di Modena

Overview

Discovering the history of the Prancing Horse 

After the Aerautodromo di Modena was demolished in the 1960s, this city in Emilia-Romagna found itself without a motor racing circuit. Various attempts to recreate one soon culminated in the current Autodromo di Modena, which was inaugurated in 2011. The 2,068-metre-long track has several uphill and downhill stretches and alternates between long straight sections of about 400 metres and a total of eleven bends. If needed, the track can be converted into two straight sections by removing turn 5 and joining turn 4 with turn 6. In 2014, a chicane was added to the final corner, with a run-off area and a tighter turning radius. 

For car enthusiasts, just twenty kilometres away is the town of Maranello, home of the prestigious car manufacturer since 1943. Don't miss the Ferrari Museum, with its distinctive yellow bonnet-shaped structure. Inside, you can learn all about the glorious history of the racing team, admiring team trophies and cars on display. Nearby is the Casa Natale Enzo Ferrari foundation, dedicated to the founder of the brand. His life story is told through a workshop tour, biographical film and various items of memorabilia. 

Fun fact: originally, the Prancing Horse logo was a good-luck charm that decorated the plane of aviator and WWI veteran Francesco Baracca, a friend of Enzo Ferrari.
