Maranello, 17th December 2008
With the opening of a new photo exhibition the Galleria Ferrari continues its theme of prestigious expositions
the Galleria has dedicated to the relationship between Ferrari and the world of arts.
The works of Günther Raupp, the official photographer of Ferrari's calendars, over the last 25 years are
shown in the Galleria's thematic exhibition area. The exhibition will open with a preview on 18th December at
18pm in the presence of the artist. The exhibition will be shown in Maranello until 2nd March 2009.
The legend of Ferrari can also be found in images and a calendar can become a real cult object for the fans
of the Prancing Horse. This is the case of the calendars by Günther Raupp who, after cultivating his passion
for Ferrari and making a dream come true by buying a Dino 246 Spider, in the year 1984 presented his first
calendar on his own initiative, which was extremely appreciated by Enzo Ferrari.
25 years have passed since then and a contract between Ferrari and the photographer was signed so his
calendar became the official Ferrari calendar. Every year the calendar is published and distributed all over the
world in a format of 50 X 70 cm.
At the Galleria in Maranello the original calendars, published in collaboration with the Company over the last
25 years, will be shown next to some of the most beautiful photos from the different sets: a prestigious
selection of images in format 120 X 120 cm with the most beautiful Ferraris owned by collectors all over the
world, immortalized exclusively by Günther Raupp.
After Maranello the exhibition will be shown in Stuttgart, Tokyo, San Diego, New York and London.
On the occasion of the exhibition several prestigious cars will be shown at the Galleria: the Ferrari 275 GTB/4,
the 512 M and the F40.
The Galleria will be open during the holidays, apart from Christmas Day and 1st January, from 9:30am to
18pm. The visit of the exhibition is included in the entrance fee.
