New Modena Museum Honours the Life and Works of Enzo Ferrari

The Casa Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena was opened Saturday to honor the life and work of Enzo Ferrari, the founder of the Italian sports car manufacturer. The new museum complex includes Enzo Ferrari’s birthplace and a futuristic automotive design gallery, painted in the yellow that Enzo Ferrari chose as the background for the prancing horse on his famous logo. The museum was reportedly the last work by famous architect Jan Kaplicky before his sudden death in January 2009. Following his death, the remaining construction was completed by his former colleague Andrea Morgante.
