Forli (30 of 47)

Recognise the horse?! It’s the Ferrari horse. Did you know that Ferarri took on the horse after a request from Francesco Baracca’s (a well-known pilot in the war) mother? She suggested it should be put on Ferrari’s cars as a symbol of good luck (hmm, Francesco died in his plane, I’m not convinced of the rationale there). I should add that Asso means “Ace” not “Ass”.
