The earthquake on 29 May was severe enough to temporarily halt production of automakers Ferrari and Maserati. Motorcycle manufacturer Ducati, which was recently purchased by Audi, also shut its factory in the wake of the temblor.
A previous earthquake on 20 May claimed the lives of seven people and caused over $251 million in damage near the town of Finale Emilia. Almost half of Italy is seismically active, with some 2,000 minor earthquakes reported each year.
Ferrari said their clients and collectors from around the world spontaneously contacted the Maranello headquarters to offer their contribution as soon as news about the earthquakes broke out. The generosity of Ferrari’s enthusiasts enabled the company to provide support to those most hit by the tragedy.
When Japan was hit by a devastating tsunami last year, the Maranello automaker contributed over 80 million Yen to build two after-school facilities in the city of Ishinomaki.
