    Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile – Gallery

    Last day in Italy, quick stop at the National Museum of The Automobile in Turin, covering the evolution of the Automobile. Established in 1932 and refurbed in 2011, by far the best Museum yet, with endless interactive displays and staged period themes to great effect. Well worth the visit.

    Ducati Museum Gallery

    Back in the day, when we owned Ducati Cape Town, we were privileged enough to visit Italy and Ducati regularly. Our since visit back since 2006, like Ferrari, not much has changed other than new models. Still have a massive respect and soft spot for Ducati as a Brand on and off track. Lovely to be back in their hood!

    Ferrari Museum – Gallery

    Visiting Italy for EICMA 2017, popped down to Modena to visit a few Museums. First visited Ferrari back in 1999, not much has changed although a lot more commercialized and popular tourist destination. Really nice taking in the vibe of the Ferrari’s buzzing around the area and special to see my first Alfa Romeo Giulia QV right driving passed the entrance to the Factory!

    Bologna – Ducati – Venice

    After our first visit to Ducati in ten years, we explored the back roads to Venice. More dual way single track. Very Italian. Learned to trust the GPS, quite refreshing. Although it does not give you the bigger picture, it allows one to be adventurous without getting completely lost! Love the way the traffic just flows without any hooting or drama. Parking in Venice completely full, so we had to train in. 4th floor, no lift, great views, need oxygen! Only allowed one beer, topped up with supplies at local DeSpar. Beautiful Venice, delicious ice cream!
