Present at the opening were Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo, Paolo Pininfarina, president of the eponymous company, Piero Ferrari and members of the Pininfarina family including the late Sergio’s wife, Giorgia. The exhibition, which runs until January 7th, comprises 22 models, including one-offs of the likes of the extraordinary Pinin, Ferrari’s only experimentation with a four-doorcar, and the 330 GTC Speciale once owned by Lilian, Princess de Rethy of Belgium. The cars in the exhibition are split between three separate, themed halls which tell the story of Pininfarina’s work on the racing cars (“Pininfarina and Racing”), the road cars (“Pininfarina and the Grand Tourers”) and some of the experimental models bodied by the Turin coachbuilder (“Pininfarina and the Concept Cars”). In addition to the cars, many previously unseen exhibits from the Pininfarina family’s private and company collections will also be on display, not least of which is the wooden styling buck of the Modulo concept car.
