Motor Valley. Our journey through the most fascinating anecdotes, myths and behind the scenes concerning “our” car history could only begin from the beating heart of automotive Italy. A cultural heritage that we have decided to collect in a new series entitled Engine stories.
Every Sunday, the voice and interpretation of Luca Dal Monte they accompany us to discover stories, some unknown to most, that celebrate the tradition of our country and the passion for motors.
A valley that is worth a world
Just as in California they have Silicon Valley, we can too boast excellence equally recognized internationally. The Land of Motors certainly does not have precise boundaries, in the sense of defined and definitive, but we are certainly talking about that part of Emilia-Romagna which includes Sant’Agata Bolognese, Maranello, Modena, Borgo Panigale and San Cesario sul Panaro. Respectively, the “houses” of Lamborghini, Ferrari, Maserati, Ducati and Pagani, without forgetting Varano de Melegari, near Parma, where Dallara is based.
And then there is all the related activities, the other hundreds of companies active in the area (and therefore professionals of the highest level) who form a business connective tissue alive, articulate and solid like nowhere else in the world. And this is precisely the scenario of our motor stories.
