The now classic prancing horse emblem was originally emblazoned on the fighter plane of Francesco Baracca, an ace fighter pilot of World War I. In 1923, when competing in the first Circuito del Savio, at Ravenna, Enzo Ferrari made the acquaintance of the hero's father; as a result of that meeting, he was subsequently introduced to the ace's mother, the Countess Paolina Baracca, who one day said to him: \”Ferrari, why don't you put my son's rampant horse on your car? It will bring you luck.\” Photography by Tim Wallace.
