The name Ducati is synonymous of technology, high performance, Italian style, and is a symbol in the imagination of motorcyclists, who link it to a long series of victories on the race track and to a high level of designing motorcycles for road use.

Ferrari

Ferrari is definitely one of the most prestigious companies in the design and production of cars. The first car was built in Maranello in 1947 and from that moment the growth of the company has never stopped, always trying to do its best.

Lamborghini

Lamborghini

The history of 'Lamborghini Automobili' officially starts in 1963. Nevertheless, we must consider the far-off roots of this event, and they are the roots of Ferruccio Lamborghini. He started working on this project in late 1962, and by May 1963 he had already founded 'Automobili Ferruccio Lamborghini', buying a large plot of land in Sant'Agata Bolognese, about 25 kilometres from Bologna, to build a new large and ultramodern factory.

Maserati

Maserati

It was founded in Bologna by Alfieri Maserati on 1 December 1914 and established as a mechanical workshop named ‘Officine Alfieri Maserati’. In 1926 Maserati was transformed from a workshop, modifying or developing the vehicles of other companies, into a company designing, building and selling its own.
