June 2012 saw the first Notte Rossa, or “Red Night”, a big all-night party to celebrate the community’s pride and passion, organised by Maranello Town Council.
This event is celebration for the entire town, starring Ferrari cars from all over Italy and abroad, parked along the streets of Maranello in a symbolic open air museum: the homecoming of cars produced at the local plant. The event also involves performances, music and entertaining, and attracts thousands of people every year. In 2016 the Notte Rossa was also the first national celebration within Italy’s Città dei Motori (“Motor Cities”) network.
Right from the very first edition, the Notte Rossa was an outstanding event, with great appeal, dedicated to the passion for Ferrari. A big party for everyone, involving the whole town, from the central Piazza Libertà to the Ferrari Museum area, with the splendid sight of dozens of Ferrari cars of all ages providing the backdrop for performances, entertainments and events along the streets, including the Ferrari Pit Stop, Experience at which visitors can try their hand at being a Formula 1 mechanic with the aid of the Scuderia Ferrari Club.
On that early summer night, thousands of people flock to Maranello to celebrate the pride and the passion that have reached out from the town of the Prancing Horse to embrace the whole world.
