Maranello, December 6, 2001

Ferrari’s CEO Luca Cordero di Montezemolo will receive the status of an honorary citizen of the town of Maranello on Thursday

The bestowing of citizenship, which will be represented symbolically by the handing over of a key and a parchment scroll, will take place at the Enzo Ferrari Auditorium at 17.00h. The ceremony will also be shown on a giant screen in the Piazza Libertà.

The mayor of the town of Maranello, Giancarlo Bertacchini summed up the reasons which prompted the Town Council to make this significant gesture to the Ferrari President: "Under Montezemolo's guidance, Ferrari has once again taken the Drivers' and Constructors' Formula One World Championship titles and the marque's prestige continues to grow on the world stage. Thanks to Montezemolo, ties between the company and the area have grown closer. Ferrari has invested heavily in Maranello, with projects like the Renzo Piano designed wind tunnel and new industrial structures, currently under construction. The Galleria Ferrari is the most visited museum in Modena Province and with the launch of the 550 Maranello, the name of our town now features on a Ferrari model."

The mayor has also gone on record as saying that, "President Montezemolo is a symbol and an irreplaceable spokesman for Maranello and so, it is with gratitude that we confer on him this honorary citizenship.”
