The Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena was the centre of attention for both Italian and international press, as they witnessed the launch of the prestige exhibition “Il Rosso & il Rosa”.
Vibrant Prancing Horse Exhibition
This vibrant prancing horse exhibition is a fitting tribute to those women who carved an iconic role in the car industry, as professionals, drivers and even customers. The display incorporates some of the most beautiful and iconic Ferrari models, which since the legendary marque began have been favoured by prominent figures from the worlds of entertainment, entrepreneurship and sporting figures throughout the world.
Il Rosso & il Rosa – Red & Rose
Focusing on two extraordinary customers delivering their unique, and until now ‘untold stories’ of a bond between women and Ferrari: Amy Macdonald, the Scottish singer songwriter, and Deborah Mayer, entrepreneur and GT driver. The two ferrariste revealed their passion for cars from a women’s perspective, now less unusual, recounting fragments of life expressive of pure driving pleasure, adrenaline packed challenges with other drivers.

As a testimony of the unbroken link between women and the Prancing Horse, the exhibition “Il Rosso & il Rosa” (Red & Rose) has gathered some of the cars most loved by unforgettable female characters. This enthusiasm first took off in the 1950s when Ferrari became a glamorous icon inseparably paired with the stars of cinema: Anna Magnani and the 1951 Ferrari 212 Inter, also chosen by Ingrid Bergman, Hollywood actress Norma Shearer and the 1956 250 GT Berlinetta “Tdf”.
The sixties include for example the 250 GTO of 1962, a favourite of French rally driver Annie de Montaigu, and the 250 LM of 1963, chosen by American actress Jayne Mansfield. Then of course there are the cars of the special guests of the event: the Ferrari 458 Italia of Amy Macdonald and the Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 and Ferrari 488 Challenge track models of Deborah Mayer.
