Fabrizio Violati

On January 13th, 2009 the Italian President, Sen. Giorgio Napolitano, honored Maranello Rosso founder Fabrizio Violati and general manager Sandra Lodi Vetrano for their significant contribution to Italy and decorated them as “Commander and Cavaliere of the Ordine della Stella”.

Fabrizio Violati, former owner of the mineral water company Sangemini – Ferrarelle – Boario, had been friends with Enzo Ferrari and a pilot for the Ferrari team. Driven by the desire to conserve an important Italian patrimony, he spent over 20 years of passionate and meticulous searching to acquire a unique collection of cars that today is exhibited in the two distinguished Ferrari Museum and Abarth Museum of Maranello Rosso, located in the Republic of San Marino.

Sandra Lodi Vetrano, a great communicator and the heart and soul of Maranello Rosso from its inception, has been using her diverse talents to continuously promote “Made in Italy”, by organizing events and happenings for enthusiasts as well as the general public. Her tireless efforts succeeded in turning the Maranello Rosso brand into one of Italy's great prides, winning international recognition.

Besides its well-known collections that focus on the cars and image of a specific marque, Maranello Rosso is also dedicated to the men behind the cars. In the words of Sandra Lodi Vetrano and Fabrizio Violati: “The passion and achievements of a few extraordinary men have changed the history of this country into the dream of many!”

Among the exceptional private collections and museums around the world, the Maranello Rosso museums certainly stands out for the incredible treasures kept and for its public events and activities, intended to celebrate the historic significance of what many view as samples of 20th century art. For that, the Italian President acknowledged Maranello Rosso’s accomplishments as “representative of the excellence of the Made in Italy mark around the world”
