Since the photo competition threads have died and been locked, I can't find a good place to share some photos, so lets start a new thread for it. Not a competition, just a place to share.

I just got back from living a lifelong dream... a visit to the Ferrari museums in Maranello and Modena. I apologize for the shakey quality of the photos, but unfortunately, the very first hour of the very first day I was in Italy, Florence to be precise, I fell while walking along the River Arno and in doing so destroyed my trusty Canon SX60 camera so the pics are taken with my phone and with an old point & shoot that I had, by good fortune, thrown in the suitcase at the last minute.

You can see all that I have posted so far using these links:

The Ferrari Museum in Maranello

The Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena

Ferrari is certainly not everybody's "cup of tea", but most any F1 fan, and certainly any racing fan, would enjoy seeing these museum if you ever get the chance.

Congratulations on making your dream come true.
I visited Marenello in 2009 and it looks, from your pics, to have improved the collection since then so Damn! I will have to go back.
A good portion of the Painless blood which courses through these veins is Italian so I hope you enjoyed Italy (and your travel insurance coughs up for a new camera)

As part of my 14 year old daughters design technology course at school their school trip is to visit the Ferrari factory AND the Ducati factory design depts.

They never did school trips like that in my day!

No such luck on the camera... to high a deductable.

I did indeed enjoy Italy... so long as I don't get a rash of tickets in a couple of weeks as seems to be the norm for people driving in Italy for the first time.

On a personal note, I love Italy and have been fortunate to have been there 3 other times, twice in the 90s and just a couple of years ago (Venice). Having all my graduate hours in Art History, and having taught Art for 26 years, Italy is about as good as it gets for me. I too have been accused of having Italian blood running through my veins... but have a definately French surname.
