Myths are never born by chance. They are not the result of coincidences, rather, they are the mark of destiny. Scuderia Ferrari was born in 1947.

As the Commendatore, at nearly 50, was finally realizing the dream that had obsessively directed his life and that was to revolutionize Italian industry, the current president of Scuderia Ferrari, Luca di Montezemolo, was being born in Bologna, not far from Maranello. Two men, one symbol: the Prancing Horse of Francesco Baracca.

The story of the House of Maranello is inextricably intertwined with the lives of these two strong and charismatic figures, each an expression of his time. The Grand Old Man became a myth in his own lifetime; he never left the legendary factory that had been his brainchild, to which he was attached with a visceral intensity. Indeed he had no need to go anywhere, for the world came to him instead: heads of governments, princes, kings, sports personalities, Hollywood celebrities made a beeline to place orders for the mechanical and aesthetic marvels that trickled from the fabled Maranello works.
