Ducati Museum honoured
For the fourth year running the Ducati Museum in Bologna has been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, a prestigious acknowledgment given to tourist facilities and attractions that are consistently given excellent reviews on the world’s largest travel website. The award reflects the high satisfaction ratings posted by the constant stream of visitors to the Ducati Museum which, in 2014 alone, attracted over 40,000 people from all over the world. The Ducati Museum, actually located inside the motorcycle production plant, covers an area of about 850 square metres and offers a unique insight into over half a century of motorcycle racing. This history journey passes through seven different theme-based multimedia rooms organised by Livio Lodi, the museum’s curator. In 2012 the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities (Regional Supervisor of Cultural and Landscape Heritage of Emilia Romagna) declared the Ducati Museum, together with the motorcycle manufacturer’s archives, to be of outstanding historical and cultural importance, so much so that they are on the official archival heritage listings.
