His (father's) workshops, and the family house, were sited at 264 via Camurri, next to the railway line running through the northern end of town... The buildings stand there today, now renamed and renumbered but looking almost as they did then, except for the television aerials sprouting from the roof of the two-storey house. From the road, the house looks deserted, the long, low workshops disused. But round the side, where the railway track passes along the front, up there on the brickwork of the upper floor of the house, the name FERRARI can just be seen, carefully lettered in white paint that may be only a decade or two from fading completely.
