The deployment on the starting grid of the circuit was very exciting and it was the right prelude to an equally unique race.

For the occasion, the group was able to show off, in addition to the traditional flags representing the lily of Florence, a cloth in honor of the 1000 Scuderia Ferrari Grand Prix.

Dolce e Gabbana

The high fashion tailoring of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana chose Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance, for the rebirth of fashion in 2020.

After a parade inside the hall of the 500 of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, the guests of the designers moved to the arengario of the historic building, to attend a deployment of the Procession of the Florentine Republic and an exhibition of flags and drums of the Bandierai of the Uffizi.

A fantastic setting for a unique and suggestive show.

Thanks to Daniela Cheli for the wonderful video.


On the occasion of the celebrations for the historic milestone of the 1000 Grand Prix achieved by the Scuderia Ferrari, the Bandierai degli Uffizi had the honor of performing in the event organized by the same car manufacturer, in Piazza della Signoria in Florence.

In the midst of the historic models of the prancing horse stable, our flags have entertained today’s and yesterday’s riders, as well as current managers, in the middle of a red-colored Piazza della Signoria and artistic projections on the facade of the historic building.

Thanks to Scuderia Ferrari for the wonderful pictures.
