FROM THE PAST TO THE  FUTURESince January 1st Maranello tells the story of Ferrari’s present through the lens of its past and also with a clear eye to its future, and has now been flanked by the MEF (Museo Enzo Ferrari) in Modena. The latter is built around the house in which Enzo Ferrari was born in that city in 1898. The MEF tells the story of Enzo Ferrari as a young boy discovering the irresistible allure of the world of motor racing, his career as a driver in 1920s, as the driving force behind the Scuderia Ferrari in the 1930s, and then as Ferrari the Constructor from 1947 onwards.The two museums complement each other brilliantly. Maranello gives visitors an insight into the Ferrari of today: the world’s most powerful constructor, and the cars on show are a mix of our most iconic models and our contemporary ones.In Modena, however, the cars exhibited range from pre-war Alfas to the first Ferrari ever built and the most significant models in Enzo Ferrari’s career. From next June, the Founder’s home will also host an exhibition of Ferrari engines as Enzo Ferrari, in fact, always felt that the engine was the most important component of any car. Both museums are open every day with the exception of Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, and also have their own websites, of course.
