Maranello Coronavirus Covid-19 Outbreak – Cases Quarantine Deaths Stats to Emilia-Romagna Italy

Maranello is a town and commune in the region of Emilia-Romagna in Northern Italy, 18 km from Modena, with a population of 17,165 as of 2018. It is known worldwide as the home of Ferrari and Scuderia Ferrari Formula One racing team. Maranello was also home to coachbuilding firm Carrozzeria Scaglietti, owned by Ferrari.

Get in

If your coming by train from Modena then you have to take a bus to the bus station and then a bus to Maranello.

Take a bus from the Modena bus station. The bus to Maranello leaves every 1 hour and takes abt 30 mins be sure to ask the driver to stop at the galleria ferrari stop.

The Maranello bus station is along the street from the Ferrari factory. Tickets can be purchased at the pub.

Get around

The town is quite compact so you can walk.

See

This town is all about Ferrari. The Ferrari factory is off-limits, unless you are able to arrange a tour through a Ferrari dealership. Preference for those tours is given to Ferrari owners and 30 days notice is usually required. But the Galleria Ferrari which boasts both historical and new Ferrari road and F1 cars is worth seeing. You can also see a part of the Fiorano test circuit from the roadside when coming into town – if there is testing going on, expect to see a lot of tifosi (Ferrari fans) around.

Ferrari SpA

Maranello has been the location for the Ferrari factory since the early 1940s, meanwhile World War II Enzo Ferrari transferred facilities by uptown Modena, ending an Alfa Romeo subsidiary long period. Initially Ferrari’s factory in Maranello was shared with Auto Avio Costruzioni, a machine tool manufacturing business started by Enzo to tide the company over while Alfa Romeo’s ban on Enzo Ferrari making cars bearing the Ferrari name was in force. In Maranello is also located Museo Ferrari public museum, collecting sports and racing cars and trophies.

Its new library opened in November 2011, and was designed by Arata Isozaki and Andrea Maffei.

Maranello is the starting point of the annual Italian Marathon, which finishes in nearby Carpi.

Do

Ferrari Galleria is the only actual sight alongside the Fiorano circuit. It’s not far from the Ferrari factory (an easy building to spot if coming on a bus): just walk towards the Ferrari Store opposite the factory and search for a sign. Tickets are 12€/adult. If you are a family its better buying a family ticket which costs 8€/adult

Buy

There is lots of Ferrari merchandise available everywhere.

Eat

You can eat in a – you guessed – Ferrari themed restaurant or look for something else. You won’t starve.

Drink

Find a pub – not difficult.

Already eleven Corona Infections at the Pope’s Swiss Guard

In the Vatican, seven other members of the pope’s Swiss Guard tested positive for the corona virus . This increased the number of demonstrably infected guardsmen to eleven, as the Swiss Guard announced on Thursday. All infected people had been isolated, the message said. The brightly uniformed guards protect Pope Francis and his residence.

A major corona outbreak among the guards could therefore also be dangerous for the Pope, 83 years of age belongs to the risk group. The Argentinean pope had part of his right lung removed at the age of 21 due to severe pneumonia but he is considered relatively healthy for his age.

The Catholic media platform “Vatican News” reported in early October that the guardsmen had been asked to “be careful when dealing with the Pope” because of Corona. Face mask and social distancing are required, however a young man who was interviewed about his recruit swearing in (October 4th) said that Francis had already shaken his hand.

Corona measures in Italy – Italy reacts to the 2nd Wave of Covid-19

italycorona1000x600

Italy introduced a nationwide facemask requirement in the open due to the increase in new infections. If you don’t wear a mask when leaving your apartment, you risk a fine of up to one thousand euros, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte recently announced. You do not need to wear a face mask when you are doing sport. The regulations do not apply in private rooms or in places where only one family is staying. Children under six years of age are also exempt from this obligation.

In view of the rising numbers, Italy’s Minister of Health Roberto Speranza also ordered mandatory tests for travelers from Great Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic.

Another measure taken by the government shows how deep the shock of the first wave of more than 30,000 deaths still sits: It passed a law that prohibits the Italian regions from adopting measures that are less restrictive than those taken by Rome. However, you have the option of setting even stricter rules. Some regions, such as Lazio and Campania, had already decided that the public must wear a facemask.

Lombardy Coronavirus Covid-19 Outbreak – Cases Quarantine Deaths Stats to Italy

lombardy1000x600

Lombardy or Lombardia is a northern region of Italy, and with 10 million people is the most populous one. Producing 1/5th of Italy’s GDP, it is also the mightiest economically. Geographically, Lombardy encompasses both Alps and Prealps in the north, and relatively flat plains in the south along the river Po and its tributaries. Between them there are many scenic lakes, and the alpine backdrop makes even the low-lying cities picturesque and the air rather fresh.

[wppress-covid19 display=”card” country=”Italy, Lombardia” custom_title=”no” custom_title_text=”Covid-19 in Italy, Lombardy” card_animate_number=”yes” show_pie_chart=”no” show_daily_change=”yes” show_confirmed=”yes” show_deaths=”yes” show_recovered=”yes” show_active=”yes” confirmed_legend=”Confirmed” deaths_legend=”Deaths” recovered_legend=”Recovered” active_legend=”Active” padding=”30px 20px” border_radius=”5″ background_color=”#FFFFFF” title_color=”#333333″ confirmed_color=”#5082c7″ deaths_color=”#d04b5a” recovered_color=”#4caf50″ active_color=”#e38b4f” title_font_size=”16″ stats_font_size=”14″ legend_font_size=”14″ /]Browse down for full details of the current Coronavirus situation in Lombardy

Lombardy is heavily industrialized, although most of the industry is actually not heavy, but rather mid-sized specialized machinery-building and other assembly and engineering firms, as well as consumer industries such as foodstuffs and apparel. The regional capital, Milan, is Italy’s second-largest city and the foremost centre of commerce and a global fashion capital. Smaller cities also have considerable economic might, and have had so for many centuries, hence Lombardy is the region of Italy with the most UNESCO World Heritage List sites – and simply, a lot of history and scenic views to explore and enjoy.

  1. Lombardian Alps and Prealps (provinces of Bergamo, Brescia and Sondrio)
  2. Lake Como (provinces of Como and Lecco)
  3. Southern Lombardy (provinces of Cremona, Lodi, Mantova and Pavia)
  4. Grande Milano (provinces of Milan and Monza and Brianza)
  5. Varese

Cities

  • Milan (Milano, the capital of the province) – shares with Paris the title of fashion capital of the world, and is Italy’s second city.
  • Bergamo – a fairytale pastel-coloured city perched atop a hillside, and the gate to Bergamo Alps
  • Brescia – a major industrial powerhouse since the Ancient Roman times, and a UNESCO World Heritage List
  • Como – the city that gave the name to the popular lake
  • Cremona – home of Stradivarius violins, but also a wealth of ornate romanesque architecture
  • Lecco – a little and charming city situated on Como’s lake.
  • Mantua (Italian: Mantova) – the Ducal Palace has a cycle of frescoes by Mantegna that no art lover should miss.
  • Sondrio – the northernmost provincial capital situated amidst alpine mountain ranges
  • Varese – capital of the namesake province full of lakeside resorts, just 30 minutes from Malpensa airport

Other destinations

  • The magnificent lakes of Lake Como – take boat trips in the shadow of the Alps to the picturesque villages of BellagioVarenna and Tremezzo – Lake MaggioreLake Garda and Lake Lugano.
  • The tiny village of Erbusco, home of the award-winning wines of Franciacorta and L’Albereta, the country inn of Gualtiero Marchesi, one of Italy’s premier chefs
  • Moltrasio
  • The peninsula of Sirmione, on the south shore of Lake Garda
  • The Caves of Catullo, an archaeological site of a former Roman villa situated on the tip of the Sirmione peninsula
  • The Sirmione Spa, the largest privately owned thermal treatment centre in Italy
  • Val Camonica : UNESCO heritage site, medieval towns, castles, holy art in churches, roman sanctuary and theatre/amphitheatre, ski sports.
  • Oltrepò Pavese : Wine region in the utmost southern part of Lombardy, 70km from Milan, part of the Pavia province, medieval towns, castles, stunning views.

Understand

The Longobardis occupied the Peninsula in the 6th century, and the territory has been named after them ever since.

Lombardy is a prosperous region with fertile soil and a temperate climate. As in Piedmont, the Po Valley is the site of much heavy industry. High mountains in the north, marking Italy’s frontier with Switzerland, provide excellent skiing and climbing.

Get in

By plane

Three of Italy’s four busiest airports are in Lombardy:

  • Milan Malpensa Airport is an intercontinental airport, and Italy’s second aviation hub after Rome Fiumicino. It has multiple direct connections to Africa, Asia and North America, as well as across Europe, where it is served by both full-service and low-fare carriers.
  • Milano Linate is Milan’s city airport, served by business-oriented flights to European major commercial centres, as well as a dense Italian domestic network.
  • Bergamo Orio al Serio Airport is served almost exclusively by low-fare carriers, taking advantage of its proximity to both Milan and the Alps.

Despite only Linate being in the city and province of Milan, all three airports are marketed as serving the city. One can easily get to other destinations in the province from them, without necessarily changing in Milan. There is also a small airport in Brescia, which in recent years has seen next to no scheduled traffic.

Travel by train to Lombardy

Road and train links connect the region with Switzerland. As Switzerland is not part of the EU, there is a possibility that you will be delayed by checks at the border, although these are infrequent and usually not rigorous. Remember your passport.

Get around

There is a relatively dense railway network connecting cities and towns in Lombardy, although the layout is intricate and getting from one place to another may not be straightforward. You should be able to reach your destination within 1 or 2 hours by train. Otherwise, buses and minibuses link important destinations, especially those popular with tourists. Hubs are usually in regional centres, as well as near major railway stations and airports; you can try to change there if there are no direct connections. Regional train network is entirely managed by Trenord.

Regione Lombardia offers a good travel planner that lets you query the whole public transportation system.

If you plan to travel a lot, it might be worth buying a io viaggio ovunque in Lombardia pass ticket. Those tickets let you travel without limit on the entire public transport system in Lombardy, including regional trains, buses and city public transportation systems, but excluding some ferry boat lines. Although expensive, they can easily be a cheaper option than regular tickets if you travel long distances. Passes are sold at railway stations (at ticket box or automatic vending machines) and at ATM automatic vending machines. You can buy 1, 2, 3 or 7 day passes (16€, 27€, 32.5€, 43€ respectively – February 2020).

The railway company Trenord offers some good travel packages, under the Trenord Free Time name. The package usually includes a ticket to an attraction or a trip proposal and a train ticket to get to the destination. Most of them are really useful only if you depart from Milan. It’s worth to take a look at the offers as they can also suggest you some new or lesser known itinerary that you may like.

As the Autostrada A4 runs across Lombardy, with the road system radiating from its junctions, you can get around by car as well. The A4 frequently gets congested though and traffic jams can be long and excruciating, especially around Milan. Be aware that Italians drive fast and make no allowances for foreigners, so be sure you are OK with keeping up with the traffic and occasional displays of impatience from other drivers.

Milan, Bergamo and Brescia have efficient and extensive public transportation systems.

What to see in 

Do

  • Milan Fashion Weeks draw crowds of fashionistas to Milan every year.
  • La Scala in Milan is a mecca for opera aficionados.
  • You can enjoy water sports or more relaxed boating on the lakes.
  • The Alps offer opportunities for hiking or skiing.

Eat

Lombardy’s most famous culinary inventions are minestrone soup and osso buco (literally “ox knuckles”). To the west of Milan lie miles of rice fields, where the rice for risotto alla milanese is grown. Other typical dishes of the area include salumi (cold cuts) and polenta.

As in many other areas of Northern Italy, the aperitivo (pre-meal drink with appetisers, for which a small supplement might be charged) is very popular.

Drink

The wineries in Franciacorta, around Erbusco, produce many excellent wines. The region has been elevated to the status of DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita). Other remarkable zones for wine are Oltrepò Pavese (which is the zone around Pavia on the south banks of Po river) and the countrysides around Garda Lake.

Valtellina also produces excellent wines, famous for their strong taste and flavour.

As every big city in the world, Milan has also many high quality restaurants, wine bars and Enoteche (wine store) where you can find high class wines from all over the world.

Where to stay in Lombardy

Large cities, like Milan, Bergamo or Brescia, are important business centres, so they have sizeable bases of business-oriented hotels. They are local hubs with connections to destinations within their provinces, and getting between them is also reasonably quick via a variety of means of transportation (trains, express buses or cars across the A4). Do note that accommodation in Milan is generally expensive, and prices skyrocket during major events or fairs, such as the Milan Fashion Week.

Destinations along the lines of the lakes, as well as those in the Alps, are popular with tourists, so you will find a variety of accommodation options there, from luxurious resort hotels to simple B&Bs.

Stay safe in Lombardy

While Milan features many of the usual tourist traps and con acts, as well as sizeable number of pickpockets due to the number of tourists there, other destinations are generally safe, and you can feel secure and welcome there. Do note, however, that in case you need to contact the police they can have very limited English skills and also may not be able to help foreigners much.

Go next

To the east is Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto, to the south is Emilia-Romagna and Piedmont is to the south and west. Switzerland lies to the north.
