In San Cesario sul Panaro, just 2 km from our hotel
, you can visit the headquarters of Pagani
, a company specializing in the production of rare and much beloved luxury sports cars
. The production is centered upon the talent of Horacio Pagani
and is extremely limited and exclusive, dedicated to lovers of top-level design.
You can visit the Pagani Automobiles atelier
by booking a tour well in advance.
Slightly further from our position, in the province of Parma (Varano de’ Melegari), are the headquarters of Dallara, which has designed and produced the safest and fastest competitive and commercial vehicles in the world, for the past 40 years.
Besides its car design activities, Dallara
also lends important consultancy services to some of the largest international automobile brands, such as Alfa Romeo, Audi, Bugatti, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and many more.
Not just cars: the motor valley
is the home of motorcycles too! Ducati
is certainly one of the most important brands in this sector.
The company headquarters are located in Borgo Panigale, near Bologna
; initially the company (founded in 1926) produced electro-mechanical parts, and only after the Second World War did it begin producing its first prototype of the "Cucciolo", a motor-driven bicycle.
Since then, Ducati
has become a world-renowned firm, immediately associated with the very idea of motorbikes
, especially thanks to the fame earned by models such as the Monster
or the 996, which are true masterpieces and reference points in terms of design and mechanical functionality.
