New exhibition unveiled at Modena’s Enzo Ferrari Museum
To celebrate Enzo Ferrari’s birthday, a new exhibition will be unveiled at the Museo Enzo Ferrari in Modena entitled “Red Carpet”. As the name suggests, the exhibit is a tribute to Ferrari’s role on the Silver Screen and beyond.
The exhibition brings together the models used on screen with clips of them in action in an homage of sorts to the world of film and television which was so quick to spot their star quality and give them their moment in the spotlight: from the famous Magnum P.I. 308 GTSs to the Miami Vice Testarossa, the 512S used in Le Mans and the 375 America driven by Sofia Loren in Boy on a Dolphin.
Like any exhibition, this one has taken a lttle artistic licence to include the F430 Schumacher voiced in Cars, complete with big cartoon eyes. We also picked the Thomassima, an American-style Ferrari sculpted by designer Tom Mead on 250 GT running gear, to symbolise the many Maranello cars that have appeared on screen in disguise, not least in the Fellini-directed segment of Histoires Extraordinaires, The Racers and The Love Bug.
