The Incredible Workshops of Maranello’s Master Craftsmen

Every day, a tiny city in the north of Italy is shaken by the noise of freshly-tested vehicles straight from the factory: Ferrari’s. The majority of the people from Maranello live with the spirit of the most famous car manufacturer in the world. You can sense it in every corner, and I don’t just mean the test cars with prova plates, cruising around the area from dusk ’til dawn.
