Going through Modena soon; what's to be seen?
Posted 20 June 2006 - 11:57
A friend of mine will be driving through Modena in the next day or so and is wondering what is worth seeing while he's there. I have given him the address of the Maranello museum close to Modena, although the website I got it from was 3 years old. Is there anything you guys 'n gals could recommend ?

"Shopping Formula 1"
"Da William" located at Via flavio Gioia, this is where Luca eats
The Pizzeria in the Hotel Domus, good for Pizza and Pasta
It's not a big town, so all the good stuff is within walking distance of the factory.

There is also the Panini Collection -- a private collection of (mostly) Maseratis, which happens to be on the site of a cheese farm (http://www1.maserati..._200601_03.aspx).
In Maranello, we liked the Montana restaurant. While we were there a Fiat van full of Ferrari F1 crew members pulled up and unloaded. The guys proudly wore their work uniforms to dinner and the staff fawned over them. It was fun to watch.
Hope this helps!

It was in 2004 when I last visited. There's a garden at the far end (from the city) of the park where about a dozen busts had been erected of Italian racing drivers and motorcyclists. The aerodrome control tower/building was also still there. The building features in the background of several period racing photos. Was it used as the timing building for the racing?
I too recommend the Stanguilini museum.
Another Modena memorial is near the Maserati factory in the grounds of a school.
