This year, the Maranello Rosso Museums in the Republic of San Marino
will host two events to celebrate the competition that Enzo Ferrari
described as “the most beautiful race in the world”.
On May 6, 2009, members of the media will be able to enjoy a presentation
on this year’s green motto “Impact 0”, and an exclusive preview of the new
exhibit “60th Anniversary of Abarth & C.” which celebrates the birth of this
iconic company on March 31, 1949. It was only weeks later, that Abarth &
C. launched its brand into the spotlight when it entered that year’s Mille
A special appearance will be made by the key figure of that year: Mr. Guido
Scagliarini, whose father was the financier behind Abarth & C. As official
pilot of the Squadra Corse, Guido Scagliarini won Abarth its first award
during the Mille Miglia 1949. That trophy will be shown in the Maranello
Rosso Art Gallery.
On May 15, 2009, the second day of the Mille Miglia, the race will dash
through the picturesque Republic of San Marino. Accredited journalists will
have the superb opportunity to visit the Maranello Rosso Ferrari Museum
and the Abarth Museum. Reservations are required to later view the race
from a special press area in the historic center of town!
