Museo Francesco Baracca
Total votes: 6

Count Francesco Baracca was Italy's top fighter ace of World War I, who died in 1918. His prancing horse emblem was used by Enzo Ferrari later on. Lugo, the hometown of Francesco Baracca, has dedicated to the World War I hero a museum housing the SPAD VII, the fighter that brought Baracca to one of his 34 victories, as well as numerous mementos from the time. On the aircraft appears Baracca's insignia, that Pracing Horse which Francesco's mother later donated to Enzo Ferrari as emblem for his automobiles, and which the engineer Fabio Taglioni, a native of Lugo like Baracca, displayed on his Ducati motorcycles for some years.
