Here’s The Deal:
The Marconi Automotive Museum and Foundation for Kids is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded by Dick & John Marconi in 1994.

The Marconi collection is home to over 100 vehicles and one of the largest Ferrari collections in North America, as well as Formula 1, Indy, and Vintage race cars.
