"The story of cavallino rampante (prancing horse) is very simple yet fascinating. It was painted in the side of the plane of Francesco Baracca, an ace of the Italian Air Force and national hero of World War I. In 1923, when I won a race at the Savio track in Ravenna, I met the Count Enrico Baracca, father of the hero; after that, I met the Countess Paolina, mother of Francesco Baracca, who asked me to use her son’s horse on my car suggesting that it would bring me good luck."
