ferrari has opened a flagship store located in milan’s historic palazzo ricordi, just a few meters away from the piazza del duomo. the three story building was designed by italian architect massimo iosa ghini, and was conceived as not only a retail establishment, but an entertainment venue as well.





cutting-edge materials like carbon fiber and anodized aluminum compliment nods to the brand’s leading technologies to deliver an immersive, 360° experience. the bottom floor is home to a special treat, four F1 simulators, setting the outlet apart as the only one to offer the experience out of 30 existing stores worldwide. the rides draw directly from the single-seat race car and brings an authentic feel straight from the asphalt. 180° HD screens engross racers into iconic tracks like: monza, imola, mugello, silverstone, and nürburgring. incredibly accurate acceleration and braking, including hitting the strips when cornering, deliver an ultra-realistic racing adventure.
