What to see around our farmhouse? Here is a fascinating itinerary among motors and castles in the hills of the province of Modena.
The first stop on the itinerary is the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, which all lovers of motors and racing should visit at least once in their lives. The museum, located about 20 kilometers from our agriturismo, is a piece of Italian history because it tells the story of Ferrari of yesterday and today. In the futuristic pavilion you can admire the most famous road cars, the most victorious Formula 1 cars and some of the legendary models in the Sport Prototypes and Gran Turismo categories. The museum not only collects cars but also awards, photographs, reconstructions and other historical objects related to the history of Italian motor racing. In addition, there are two semi-professional driving simulators for those who want to experience the thrill of driving a Formula 1 single-seater. In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum also hosts valuable temporary exhibitions.
After visiting the Ferrari Museum, we recommend stopping for lunch in Castelvetro di Modena, one of the region’s most picturesque villages, much admired by literary figures such as Torquato Tasso. Here you can taste some of the best-known food and wine excellences of the Modena area, such as: fresh homemade pasta, Parmigiano Reggiano DOP, Balsamic Vinegar DOP and IGP, Prosciutto di Modena DOP and Lambrusco Grasparossa DOP, just to name a few. The heart of Castelvetro is Piazza Roma, also known as “della dama” because of its characteristic black-and-white slab pavement. It is overlooked by the Palazzo del Secondogenito (home of the Town Hall), the Clock and Prison Towers and the Palazzo Rinaldi. Other sights to see include: the Acetaia Comunale, run by the Castelvetresi Master Tasters of the Consorteria dell’Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale; and Fili d’Oro a Palazzo, a permanent exhibition of hand-embroidered Renaissance-style clothing.
Finally, the last stop on the itinerary is Levizzano Rangone, a small hamlet of Castelvetro nestled among green hills and rolling vineyards. Here is the magnificent Castle of Levizzano, whose structure consists of a fortified residence surrounded by walls, at the center of which is the Matildic Tower. Built at the end of the 9th century, the castle over time has been enlarged and restored several times. The so-called Bishops’ Rooms date from the 16th century, with ceilings decorated with fine Renaissance frescoes. Inside the complex is Rosso Graspa, the Museum of Wine and Rural Society, where numerous accounts of life in the fields between the two wars are on display.
