The updated Enzo Ferrari Museum (MEF) in Modena, Italy was reopened 18 February 2014 by Luca di Montezemolo and Piero Ferrari, the son of the man who started off the story of the famed Italian marque. The choice of 18 February for the reopening of the MEF was in recognition of the anniversary of Enzo Ferrari’s birth on 18 February 1898.
The new life of the Enzo Ferrari Museum has begun with the large main wing: here, as well as seeing the most important cars in the history of the Ferrari driver, constructor and creator of the Scuderia, visitors go into a veritable “time machine” that will take them through 100 years of history via multiple projections to immerse the public in images, sounds and emotions. The 18 projectors weave together the history of Modena motoring, the story of Enzo Ferrari and his deeds and the world in which it all happened.
The MEF, which has been entrusted to Ferrari by the Foundation owning the building — made up of the Modena institutions: Commune, Province, Chamber of Commerce and Automobile Club, with the support of the Cassa di Risparmio Foundation — enriches the area’s attractions that are already numerous, starting with the Ferrari Museum in Maranello.
From today the two Ferrari museums, which are open every day of the year except for Christmas and the New Year, complement each other: in Modena there’s the story of the man who created everything and the cars of his time, while in Maranello there’s the Ferrari of today and tomorrow, presented via its past success on the track and the roads.
