Automobili Lamborghini Inaugurates New Museum and Waves Off The 50th Anniversary Miura Tour
Stefano Domenicali, CEO of Automobili Lamborghini recently inaugurated the new Lamborghini Museum at the company’s headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese near Bologna. The museum’s layout and displays have been completely renovated, providing a new visitor experience including multimedia displays and activities.
The inauguration was held to coincide with the first stage of the Miura Tour, the owners’ rally celebrating the iconic super sports car’s 50th anniversary, with a journey of over 500 km through the Italian regions of Emilia, Liguria and Tuscany.
The participants’ 20 Miuras, put on display at the heart of the company, were saluted by a flyby of four Eurofighters from the 36th Stormo Caccia (fighter squadron) of the Gioia del Colle airbase near Bari in southern Italy. The new Chief of Staff of the Italian Air Force, Lt. Gen. Enzo Vecciarelli, was present.
Stefano Domenicali remarked: “The inauguration of the new Museum on the same day as the Miura Tour sets off, sends out a clear signal on Lamborghini’s commitment to honouring its history. The Museum, which has been designed as an authentic experience for visitors, will be a key attraction for an ever-increasing number of arrivals from around the world.”
“The new layout now provides a richer experience of the world of Lamborghini where our history, engines, design and technology come together in a journey from the brand’s past to its future.”
