Memories from Imola
The monument to Ayrton Senna, placed near the Tamburello curve
inside the Enzo and Dino Ferrari Autodrome, has become a place of "pilgrimage" for his fans, but also for the simple enthusiasts of Formula 1 in general.
The monument is represented by a bronze statue that depicts Ayrton, two meters high, and realized by
the artist Stefano Pierotti from Pietrasanta (Lucca Province); it was inaugurated on 26 April 1997.
In this place, since 20 years ago, his fans and admirers come to say hello to their idol and
leave in addition to the heart, many flowers, messages and other memories.
On the monument is engraved a sentence of Ayrton Senna that can make us think:
“I think I'm very far from a way of life that I would like to live”.
