The Enzo Ferrari Museum is as ferociously sleek and structurally impressive as the cars housed within. A stunning architectural specimen, it is an experimental structure featuring a unique facade that is both aesthetically pleasing and practical.

Designed by Future Systems, the Enzo Ferrari Museum boasts thermo-sensor activated windows that allow cool air to circulate throughout the building during the summer. Since half of the building resides below ground, geothermal energy is used to heat and cool the interior as well, making it the first building in Italy to do so. The Enzo Ferrari Museum employs photovoltaic technology and water recycling systems to further its eco-friendly existence.

Inside, the Enzo Ferrari Museum is like one big blank slate, allowing the luxury vehicles to truly shine.
