Over 24,000 visitors flock to the Ferrari Family Day as the SF90 Stradale is the star of the annual employee event
This weekend’s Ferrari Family Day has attracted record attendance numbers. Chairman John Elkann welcomed over 24,000 people to the now-traditional event which sees employees, their families and friends visit the Ferrari factory in Maranello and the Carrozzeria Scaglietti in Modena.
The leitmotif running right through the day is the SF90 Stradale, the marque’s first production hybrid car. Several different versions of the model are on display along a visitor route that illustrates the design, innovations and exceptional characteristics that have justifiably seen the model dubbed a ‘production supercar’.
The various departments in which the latter model and the other Ferraris are built are also open to visitors: from the buildings where designers and engineers craft our designs to the foundry, the Car Assembly area, and the Fiorano Track where all Prancing Horse models are developed before being dispatched to over 60 countries around the world. The visitors also got to admire at first-hand the other cars in the range and the F1 single-seaters of past and present.
Open to visitors today too are the Ferrari Classiche department, a workshop where our classic and veteran cars are maintained and restored, the Gestione Sportiva racing division, which is headquarters of the Scuderia Ferrari, and the new buildings for the Prototype Construction and the new Style Centre, which has been home to Ferrari’s design and personalisation activities for the last year.
These are the areas where some 4,000 professionals work together as a team to reconcile innovation and quality of life in line with the principles of Formula Uomo: constant commitment without which exceptional cars of the likes of the SF90 Stradale simply would not be possible.
To mirror the company’s commitment to sustainability, single-use plastics and food waste have both been reduced to a minimum. Excess meals will be delivered to Food for Good, a project run in collaboration with the not-for-profit organisations Banco Alimentare and Equo Evento Onlus.
