(AGI) - Modena, Feb.21

(AGI) - Modena, Feb.21 - Honorary degree to Piero Ferrari, son of the 'Drake', Enzo Ferrari. The University of Modena and Reggio Emilia awarded him a degree in Mechanical Engineering for sport and management merit. "The fame of his father Enzo didn't help Piero Ferrari prove his value. Nevertheless, his great will and technical know how allowed him to surface, through a constant update of complex management projects". The Education and Research Ministry approved the decision. "This acknowledgement honours me - said Piero Ferrari - especially because my father strongly supported the institution of a Mechanical Engineering dept". Piero Ferrari is president of Piaggio Aero Industries and deputy president of Ferrari SpA. The degree was awarded to him by the Chancellor, Gian Carlo Pellacani. The ceremony took place in the main room of the Engineering faculty, attended by several academic and institutional authorities. Once the ceremony was over, engineer Sergio Pininfarina took the floor, pointing out that he got to know Piero Ferrari when he joined Ferrari, as sports management director. (AGI) -
