Macau’s leading leisure and entertainment resort, City of Dreams, is teaming up with the Design Museum (London), the world’s leading museum devoted to architecture and design, and Ferrari, the world’s most iconic carmaker to present the ‘Ferrari: Under the Skin’ exhibition in Asia for the first time. Following on from highly acclaimed runs at the Museo Ferrari in Maranello, Italy and the Design Museum in London, ‘Ferrari: Under the Skin’ will make City of Dreams in Macau its coveted third global destination from January 25 to June 16, 2019.
Continuing City of Dreams’ mission to deliver out-of-this-world experiences for global travelers in Asia and following hot on the heels of the opening of the groundbreaking Morpheus hotel, the HKD2 billion-valued major exhibition takes visitors on an immersive journey to explore the history and design of the world’s most luxurious and iconic car brand. Curated by the Design Museum in London and the Museo Ferrari in Maranello, ‘Ferrari: Under the Skin’ features over 10 cars of significance and some 100 original artefacts from the legendary Italian marque’s rich history, many of which are from private collections and are on display in public for the first time in Asia.
For the duration of the exhibition, City of Dreams will transform its contemporary art space into a unique museum that will showcase the rise of Ferrari from its against-the-odds beginnings in an Italy ravaged by the Second World War to the glamour and glory of the brand we know today. The exhibition captures the passion, ambition and relentless drive for excellence that has made Ferrari the most sought-after name among motoring enthusiasts the world over.
‘Ferrari: Under the Skin’ is divided into six distinct zones, showcasing everything from original hand-drawn sketches and early wooden master models to engines, gearboxes and other parts that illustrate Ferrari’s ground-breaking engineering techniques and design. Among the highlights set to thrill visitors is an exact replica of the first Ferrari ever made in 1947, the 2000 Formula 1 championship-winning car driven by Michael Schumacher as well as an elite selection of vintage racing cars that hold a special place in Ferrari’s incredible story.
Mr. David Sisk, Property President of City of Dreams Macau, said: “We are very excited to bring this exceptional exhibition to Asia for the first time, and to give visitors to City of Dreams the exclusive opportunity to experience some of the most famous cars of all time. Just like Morpheus, innovation and style have always been at the heart of Ferrari’s DNA, and the collaboration between the two ultra-luxury brands highlights our shared values and relentless drive to keep raising the bar.”
Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design Museum, said: “Ferrari Under the Skin shows the remarkable creative process that goes into designing, building and racing some of the most beautiful and powerful cars ever made. We are delighted that the exhibition will be enthralling a new audience in Macao. It’s particularly appropriate that it will be shown in a venue so closely associated with the architecture of Dame Zaha Hadid, a brilliant designer, and a long-term friend of the Design Museum.
Tickets for ‘Ferrari: Under the Skin’ are available now, priced at MOP80. Guests will be eligible for one complimentary ticket on any spending at City of Dreams’ outlets.
