Maranello, 13th August – A quarter of a century has passed since that Sunday 14th August back in 1988, the day Enzo Ferrari passed away. That’s a whole generation ago: we have colleagues here who were not even born when Ferrari died. And yet, his memory lives on and strongly so, for those who knew him and also for those who barely heard him talk, as well as those lucky enough to own or even to have simply driven a car that bears his name, or were overjoyed at a victory or cried at a defeat for a red car bearing an emblem of a prancing horse on a yellow background.
“The example set by Enzo Ferrari is always kept in mind,” he continued. “He managed to realise his dream of building extraordinary cars thanks to his determination and his passion, characteristics which are part of the DNA of all the men and women who work for the company that bears his name. Twenty five years on, he would be happy to see what Ferrari has become today, a unique industrial and racing institution, which represents Italian excellence and continues to enchant the millions and millions of fans of the marque, all over the world.”
