32 A visit to the famous Collezione Maranello Rosso
Maranello Rosso pays homage to Ferrari

In December of 2009, the Collezione Maranello Rosso celebrated the 20th Anniversary of its foundation, but sadly, the following month witnessed the passing of its founder, Fabrizio Violati. Over the years, he had built up an impressive collection of Ferrari Abarth cars, his great passing being for his native Italian machinery, together with numerous spares and automobile artifacts.

56 An Opening on the World
The true story of the 66 Inters and their pivotal role in Ferrari's early success and early survival

This article required a great deal of analysis and research, to restore as best as possible this 1948 year of the 166 Inter, cars which are among the most unsung of Ferrari production. Thus I want to take advantage of this publication to dedicate this work to the man without whom nothing would have occurred, Enzo Ferrari.
