“Motor Valley a tale. An Italian Project” is an exhibition that features more than 50 photographs taken in the renowned Motor Valley of Italy. Two Singaporean photographers, Mindy Tan and Wilfred Lim were given an exclusive glimpse of what goes behind the scenes of the industry’s most celebrated legends and captured their driving passions. The photography exhibition will be held from 14 to 17 September 2017, Thursday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at The Arts House. The vernissage will be held on Wednesday, 13 September at 6 p.m. and will be officiated by Mr. Dino Zoli, founder of the Dino Zoli Group.
The Motor Valley, located along the Via Emilia of Emilia Romagna Region, is a dream-come- true for anyone who loves Italian cars. It is the birth place of the who’s who of supercars, Lamborghini, Maserati and Ferrari, as well as legendary motorcycle, Ducati. From Rimini to Piacenza, there is a myriad of structures, circuits and assembly lines which is almost unbeatable and among the best in the world. Four motorways, 11 corporate museums, 12 private collections, 88 sports teams between clubs and stables, 11 karting slopes and a unique industrial facility dominate the Motor Valley.
In June this year, two Singaporean photographers, Mindy Tan and Wilfred Lim were invited by the Dino Zoli Foundation to travel through the region and to capture the passion of these celebrated legends through their lens. The result is a staggering 600 photographs of which more than 50 have been carefully selected to be showcased in this first-of-a-kind exhibition. Their photographs tell the “Made in Italy” story, bringing together the legends of the motor industry in the narrative of their common identity, history and passion.
As part of the Dino Zoli Group, the Dino Zoli Foundation is dedicated in promoting and sustaining Italian culture at home and abroad. DZ Engineering, a sister company, designs and produces integrated lighting, telecommunications, and audiovisual systems. It debuted in Singapore for the Formula One’s night race. In conjunction with the favourable support of the Embassy of Italy in Singapore, the Italian Cultural Institute and the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Singapore, “Motor Valley, a tale. An Italian Project” aims to provide a cultural aspect to the “fast and furious” world of Formula One and to showcase the spirit of the Italian motor industry.
