Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati, has been reconfirmed for another two years as President of Motor Valley Development, the association that brings together all the two and four-wheeled brands of the Emilia-Romagna land of motors. The appointment took place during the shareholders’ meeting.

Speaking on this announcement, Claudio said, “In recent years, I have carried out the task of President of the Motor Valley Development association with pride and responsibility because I believe that enhancing the uniqueness of this territory is a duty for those who, like us, are part of it. It is an honour to be able to continue in this role in the next two years and I would like to thank all the partners and institutions for their trust.”


He further added, “The industrial, tourist and cultural region of the Emilia-Romagna Motor Valley deserves to be supported and promoted in all its components, continuing to give value to the prestigious universities, historical and artistic culture and unrivalled motoring and technological expertise.”

Motor Valley is a unique industrial region in the world, with 16,500 companies and over 90,000 employees, an annual turnover of 16 billion euros and exports of 7 billion. A reality that over the years has become a strategic tourist asset for the Region, thanks to 13 specialized museums (including the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena, the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, the Automobili Lamborghini Museum, the Ferruccio Lamborghini Museum, the Ducati Museum in Borgo Panigale and the Horacio Pagani Museum), 18 private collections and 4 racetracks for racing competition (the “Riccardo Paletti” in Varano de’ Melegari, the Modena racetrack in Marzaglia, the “Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari” in Imola and the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli in Misano Adriatico).
