Design Study Competition exhibiting at the Galleria Ferrari
Under the legend "Ferrari: New Concepts of the Myth", 20 finalists for the automotive styling contest to create a 'Ferrari for the future' will have their 1/4 scale models exhibited at the Galleria Ferrari in Maranello. The competition is in partnership with Pininfarina, and with the support of Alcoa - the company that produces aluminium spaceframes for Ferrari.
The design students come from four of the most prestigious schools worldwide (Center for Creative Studies of Detroit, Coventry School of Art and Design, European Institute of Design of Turin and Tokyo Communication Arts), and have excersised themselves to produce a 1/4 scale Ferrari model that will be an alternative to the wonderful shapes of the current and previous eight- and twelve-cylinder cars.
On 18 November, the Galleria Ferrari will host the prize-giving ceremony. The 20 selected projects will be voted by a technical board of jurors, including the Ferrari Style Committee, whose main members are Luca di Montezemolo, Piero Ferrari, Jean Todt, Amedeo Felisa e Massimo Fumarola - and the senior management of Pininfarina (Senator Sergio Pininfarina, Andrea Pininfarina and Ken Okuyama).
To the four winners will go the exceptional opportunity of work experience at Ferrari or Pininfarina, transforming the academic project into professional practice. The winners of the Alcoa award will also get an aluminum reproduction of its design.
