With all the negative news this writer is shoveling onto you this morning, he wanted to finish on a more enjoyable note with John Tagliabue‘s recent tour of the Ferrari factory in Italy. Certainly not ones to be outdone by those lowly little economy car manufacturers like BMW and Mercedes, with their Zaha Hadid factories and UN Studio museums, Ferrari has a wing created by Renzo Piano and another newer one by Jean Nouvel. But they don’t just stop there, in the periphery, all of their restaurants and administrative buildings were designed by other, possibly soon to be starchitects. All in all, it’s pretty spectacular and makes you sort of wish you could don overalls and get over there to work on the assembly line, a desire we’re guessing doesn’t strike you very often.
