New exhibition at MEF in Modena creates a dialogue between Ferrari cars and other icons of style
The Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena unveils a new exhibition, “Timeless Masterpieces”, with some of the most elegant cars in the history of the marque on display.
When selecting the models, the curators of this collection focused on gran turismo and sports models, both for their iconic value and for the important role they played in the stylistic revolution of the Ferrari brand, giving shape to the aesthetic vision of their respective eras and leaving their mark on the automotive industry and beyond.
The 166 Inter from 1948, the 750 Monza from 1954, the 250 California from 1957, the 250 GTO from 1962 and the 365 GTS4 from 1969 were chosen to open the exhibition, as well as the more recent California and the GTC4Lusso. This extraordinary procession is brought to a close by the Monza SP1, brought out last year, an innovative reinterpretation of the classic barchetta cars of the fifties.
The cars are presented alongside other iconic products from a number of different sectors, from furniture to electronics and architecture accompanied by legends of music and cinema, in a refined to-and-from of cross-references and mutual influences.
The exhibition establishes a dialogue between different worlds, helping visitors to understand how the various stylistic features and symbols of each era have developed, bringing the emotions that they have given us in the past to life once again.
