Ercole Colombo grew up in Italy, where Ferrari carries a nation’s expectations every time
it races and he has been a familiar figure in the Grand Prix paddock since the late 1970s
and in this time has shot the most extensive collection of images recording the highs
and lows of the Scuderia.
His work with the Ferrari team over the past 40 years has documented many unique
images of the team at work as well as an intimate record of Enzo Ferrari, with whom
Colombo enjoyed a cordial personal relationship that lent him unparalleled behind-the-
scenes access. Colombo’s photographic reportage also spans the team’s halcyon period
from the mid-1990s and into the 2000s during Michael Schumacher’s period of
unmatched supremacy through to the current day.
