The motor Valley
Posted on 10 March 2020 From Comune di Bologna
The Bolognese territory is well-known all over the world as the “land of motors”, and with good reason. A substantial number of renowned motor companies and manufacturers is concentrated in the areas surrounding the Via Emilia, ranging from Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati to Ducati. aJoin this adrenaline-filled journey from Imola to Modena through the sector’s most iconic factories and museums!
Your journey starts in Imola at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, which has been uninterruptedly operating as venue for the most important motor racings of the country. While heading towards Bologna, where the Maserati Company was founded in the early 20th century, you will discover the Comp Collezione Moto Poggi (the Yamaha Museum in Villanova di Castenaso), and the Ducati Motor Holding in Borgo Panigale.
On your way out of Bologna, the small village of Sant’Agata Bolognese is the seat of the Lamborghini headquarters, whilst the Museum Ferruccio Lamborghini, established in 2001 in Funo, is dedicated to the historic founder of the famous motor company. Then you move on to another indisputably renowned motor brand, Ferrari, to which two museums have been dedicated, one in Maranello, and one in Modena, with a special focus on its founder, Enzo Ferrari.
