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.
