the museum…
http://www.paninimotormuseum.it/index-en.htm


Museum is open from Monday to Friday. 9.30/12.30-15.30/18.30
Sat. 9.30/12.30 - Sun. closed

For small and up (max 6 people) no reservation – no entry fee and no museum guide. For others groups. The Museum visits and Hombre farm tours must be reserved with hombre@hombre.it

The collection of the cars can be visited by appointment only, after confirmation.

Actually I would suggest anyone who plans on visiting the Pani Musuem to send senior Hombre an email before your visit. Give them plenty of notice and understand this is Italy and they move to a different/slower drum beat.

Entrance to the museum is free! Although I would recommend visitors to buy some yummy Bio food from the on site store across from the museum. They sell parma chease, honey and all sort of Bio foods. The shop in itself is very interesting.



I first heard of this museum like ten years ago! It’s taken me that long to find the time to go for a visit! I shouldn’t have waited so long. This is one of those private car collector museum’s that you just do not see anymore. It is way off the beaten path. The Panini Museum is located on a farm called: Hombre. Even when I had the address I kept thinking a car museum can’t be located here!?!? Mr. Panini’s family invented the famous Panini sandwich machines(they grill both sides of a flat sandwich) that you can find in use all over Italy and the world.

I heard a story that many years ago… that when Maserati went bankrupt and a Swiss car collector was set to buy most of Maserati Museum collection, the Italian public got wind of the pending sale and threw a fit. The Italian government stepped in and bought the collection – but sought a new owner for the Maserati museum collection. In the end Mr Panini bought the collection of cars from the Italian government – with the stipulation the Italian people would still be able to see and visit these wonderful cars. The treasure of Italian cars would not leave Italian soil! Not sure if this story is true or not… but it makes for a great story!

I decided to go for a visit to the Modena area last October. I sent Mr Hombre an email and scheduled a visit. The museum is located on a working farm. Set in the wonderful area of Modena. When I arrived it seemed like everyone was still away at lunch/ siesta. The place was totally empty. But shortly around 3:30pm the place came back to life. I waited for the Bio store guy to open up the Museum. He threw open the doors and turned on the lights and said: “Enjoy the collection”! I could not believe he just left me all alone admiring this wonderful collection of cars and bikes.

The Pani Museum (and this laid back attitude) really reminded me of the (good) old Nurburgring Museum from the ’90’s – before most of the German car museums became such tourist attraction magnets. “Nuro-Disney” (aka ‘Ringwerks) comes to mind. Before the corporate sponsors got involved, these laid back car guys were running the show. I just hope the Pani Museum can stay this way.
As you can see I was very smitten with this museum. I really enjoyed it. I would recommend any car guy to come for a visit. Just don’t take as long as I did – it might not be the same as what I sampled.

Onto my pics…

If you're going to be in the area, I would also highly recommend a tour of the Lamborghini factory. It's spectacular!

I wish I had known about this place when I was there last spring...

++1! When I went to Modena to visit this Panini Museum, I also visited Ferrari in Maranello and the New Ferrari Museum in Modena. Then the next day I went to Lambo and Panini. They are all literally like 20kms apart from each other!


The Lambo Musuem was really cool. All the rare prototypes and early production cars were there. PLUS I was able to visit the factory!

The Ferrari museums were cool, but Lambo museum stole my heart. And then I really fell in Love with Mr. Panini's private collection of Maserati's. Panini's museum is like how the old car museums were all over Germany before they became corporate extensions of a brand. I am thinking more of what has happened to the Nurburgring Museum. In former times it was such a wonderful place to visit. I would tell everyone to go visit Mr Panini's museum - before its gone.

I'm pretty sure Pagani is also close by but I don't think they offer much in the way of sights and sounds. I'll still drive by when I go back - a little recon mission, per se. My wife's company sends her to Bologna every year so I typically tag along for the free hotel room. I've grown extremely fond of Italy.

Yes, Pagani is just 13kms away from the city center of Modena.

Also close by is Bugatti. You can see the famous (new)building direct from the A1 Autostrada at Modena North exit. When driving South on the A1, the building is on the right of the Autostrada. I think this was where Bugatti built the EB110. Now a guy in Nurnberg(Germany) bought out all the old stock parts and sells and services those old EB110's.


Italy has a special place in my heart too. I love visiting Italy.

When you go visit Mr. Panini's Museum... can you ask what the deal is with those cut off street lights(they have an eagle stamped on them with some letters and the year "1926" ?) inside of his museum. I'd like to know the history behind those street lamps.

So... yesterday I was watching this cooking show series on Netflix... "Chef's Table"... I got a few minutes into the very first episode and I nearly fell off my sofa! They went to Hombre Farms that makes Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Hombre Farms is also where this Maserati Museum is located!!





and another video on the farm...
