The glamorous world of Maserati was celebrated at the opening of an exclusive photographic exhibition, ‘Egli Ci Ha Tante Stelle’ - ‘There are so Many Stars’ - in London last week.
The exhibition, staged at the Michael Hoppen Gallery in Chelsea, illustrates the colourful history of this prestigious, sporting marque through a series of superb photographs, whose subjects range from the Grand Prix victories won by Juan Manuel Fangio, to astronaut Walter Schirra taking delivery of his Maserati Bora supercar in 1971. Over 30 evocative images are on display, all of them selected by exhibition curator and design guru Stephen Bayley.
Present at the opening were racing driver Stirling Moss - who stars in several of the images - supermodel Jodie Kidd, who currently races in the Maserati Trofeo Championship, 5th Gear TV presenter Vicki Butler- Henderson and the Italian ambassador Giancarlo Aragona, who were all entertained by host and curator Stephen Bayley.
