Ferrari's in glass show cases?? where

Good day all, some time ago on an old Top Gear episode - there was one scene where a number of Ferraris were on display to public (Italy)...anyone remember\know where in Italy - i assume Maranello\Modena? We are planning a trip to Italy in the TR7\Ti - decision based on which gets road legal first.....
