Collateral exhibition 23th Edition
In partnership with: Oscar Scaglietti e Davide Toni
He was an auto body repairman who became a designer and contributed, with his visionary talent, to the legend of the house of the prancing horse.
In 1939, Enzo Ferrari happened to visit the workshop where Scaglietti was repairing the mudguards of racing cars. Drake noticed a 12-cylinder Alfa that had been repaired and modified in a way that gave the car an aerodynamic and futuristic line. Ferrari was very impressed and began sending all his racing drivers to Scaglietti. A lifelong professional relationship and friendship had begun.
For the Ferrari house, Scaglietti designed models that are symbols of the 1960s, such as the 250 Testa Rossa, the 250 GT California, the 250 GTO, and the 750 and 860 Monza. The 375 MM, made in the mid-1950s for Roberto Rossellini and Ingrid Bergman, is also his work.
In tribute to the genius of the Modena designer, two jewels from the house of Ferrari will be on display at Fiere di Parma: the 750 Monza and the 250 Le Mans. The collateral show is organized by Oscar Scaglietti and Davide Toni of Toni Auto, the Maranello workshop specialized in the restoration of vehicles bearing the famous trademarks of the land of motors.
