This will be very informative for the visitors, and they will be able to learn about the glorious history of the Italian brand Ferrari. The visitors will understand the meaning behind the Prancing horse logo on the cars.
The Italian sports car Ferrari logo was inspired by Italian pilot Francsco Baracca, who used a similar symbol on his biplane during the First World War.
In turn, they took the logo from Piemonte Reale’s second cavalry regiment during his time in the army before the war.
Enzo Ferrari, the father of the Italian car brand, took inspiration from Baracca for his new car company while he was a race driver for Alfa Romeo.
On Belgian soil, other anniversaries will also be commemorated. Jacques Swaters, a race car driver, was the Ferrari’s first authorised importer into Belgium and Europe seventy years ago.
It was, behind the United States, the second-largest importer of Ferrari vehicles ever.
