Museums in Italy

Dallara Academy

Autumn 2018 has seen the opening in Varano de ‘Melegari of a new building next to the Dallara headquarters: the Dallara Academy. The Dallara Academy is an educational and display center founded to distribute and share the wealth of knowledge and know-how created in over 46 years of experience – according to the idea of the company founder Mr. Giampaolo Dallara – as well as to enable visitors to see and to understand the cars themselves and the history of the brand Dallara. The exhibition area is always open to the public, both as a single visitor and as a group.

Diego de Henriquez War Museum for Peace

The collection contains documents relating to both World Wars, but the centenary year of the outbreak of the Great War was considered an appropriate time to open the new museum, with most of the available space reserved for exhibits related to that earlier conflict, some of them unique and extraordinary. The first part of the museum was opened with an emphasis on inclusivity, as its creator wished.

Ducati Museum

Located at the Ducati factory headquarters, the 1,000 sq/mt Ducati Museum highlights 50 years of racetrack heritage. The Museum has preserved over half a century of Ducati racing history and also the history of the company (before it produced motorcycles) founded by the Ducati brothers in 1926. From the popular post-World War II "Cucciolo" to the more recent breakthrough with the Desmosedici, the museum highlights 50 years of Ducati technological innovation, award-winning design and, above all, exceptional racetrack performance.


Dune Museum

This is a well-known museum among Yamaha aficionados, which was put together by Angelo Caprotti and Filippo Colombo. It pays particular attention to African rallies such as Paris-Dakar, Pharaohs Rally, Incas Rally, Atlas Rally and many others. Some motorcycles are in their original state, others completely restored.

Emanuele Ricci Automobile Museum

It was born from the initiative of Renato Ricci, son of the owner of the company "Emanuele Ricci" - an entrepreneur known since the 1940s for the marketing of chemicals, lubricants and tires - and has long been committed to promoting regional sport. About thirty cars, a van, two trucks, a mobile crane, a tractor and one of the first Piaggio Ape three-wheelers are shown.

Enzo Ferrari Museum, Modena

This is a museum dedicated to one of Italy’s most celebrated legends, unquestionably one of the leading lights of the Twentieth Century, Enzo Ferrari, man, driver and carmaker: the history of car racing. The new museum, built with an investment of some 18 million euros, stands on the ruins of the old house where Enzo Ferrari was born in 1898.
