Happy Birthday Italy!
Maranello, 17 March – Today Is a special anniversary for Italy, as it celebrates the fact it has been in existence for 150 years, so it is a day on which all of us feel even prouder than ever to be Italian. Ferrari wished to pay a special tribute to this event, modifying the home page of the Prancing Horse’s website, (www.ferrari.com) by featuring a green FF, a white 458 and this year’s F1 race car, obviously in red, which combine to make a unique motoring version of the Italian flag. Furthermore the window display in the forty Ferrari Stores scattered around the world are decked out in the same colours of the flag.
“Representing Italy on the race tracks and the car markets around the world is a reason for all the men and women who work at Ferrari to feel proud,” said President Luca di Montezemolo. We chose to dedicate the name of our Formula 1 car, the 150° Italia to this anniversary and this makes all of us feel even more motivated as we go about our daily work. We hope that everyone in our country is living through today in the same spirit.”
