It is clearly understood that the exhibition should not be inclined to any particular manufacturer. The visitor shall perceive the sport car development regardless to the protagonist of that time .
The scientific committee consists of following persons who spent their life in the sport car field.
It is by mean of those persons, maybe not longer young, managed by Eng Giacomo Caliri, that it started the listing of the items to be exhibited in several sectors.
Components are to be found out, collected, restored and eventually rebuilt by mean of original drawings.

Ercole Colombo, was born in Monza, Italy, and entered the world of photography
in 1970. For a young man born and bred just a stone's throw from the Monza
motor racing circuit, a real and proper temple to motor racing, combining
photography with racing was a fairly logical decision. From then on he
followed motor racing events for leading Italian and foreign publications,
thus becoming one of the most assiduous and attentive experts at all the
tracks in the world to narrate the history of F1 with his objective. On
14th September 2003, at Monza, he attended his 500th Formula 1 Gran Prix.
Ercole Colombo can be defined as one of the historic figures of F1 and
over the years he has provided photographs for numerous books on the subject.
In 1983, he was the only active Italian photographer to be invited by
the Modern Art Museums of Long Beach and San Francisco to participate
in the travelling exhibition entitled “Passion and precision”, which visited
the most important American museums to illustrate “One hundred years of
Thanks to his photographic creativity, he has participated in many other
exhibitions, both in Italy and abroad.
During his career, he has received several important awards, including
the prestigious “Premio Dino Ferrari” in 1979; the “F1 Photographer of
the Year” Award in 1984; the ACI-CSAI Award in 1985; the “Confartigianato”
Award in 1984 and 1986; the “Gilles Villeneuve” Award in 1988; the “Niki
Lauda” Award in 1990; the “1000 Miglia” Journalism Award in 1991 and the
“Publicist of the Year” Award by the Lombard Group of Sports Journalists

Ravenna as part of the Lorenzo Bandini Award, and in 2003 he won the “Pepi
Cereda” Award during the International F1 PhotographY Award, held at Monza
during the Italian Gran Prix, and the Franco Lini Award in 2004. The prestigious

Massimo (Max) de Novellis
Born in Rome in 1963 obtains in 1985 a degree in mechanical engineering at Queen Mary (London) and in 1990 a PhD on "Bond Graph Modelling of variable geometry turbocharged Diesel engines". The work is followed by publication of several technical papers. In December 1990 is employed by Centro Ricerche FIAT. Within the group lead by Ing. Giovanni Cipolla, which offered support to the various FIAT motorsport activities, is involved in research of the Lancia Delta HF 16 valves engine.
In 1992 is transferred to the Gestione Sportiva Ferrari and has the chance to work together with ing.Massai, Lombardi, Goto and Marmorini on the development of 043 and 044 V12 engines.
In 1995 returns to England at ILMOR which produces the engines for McLaren. Mario Illien and Paul Morgan, to whom he directly reports, deeply influence his technical and managerial professional evolution. In this period develops the D, E, F and G V10 engines and with the latter McLaren obtains the 1998 Drivers and Constructors world Championships.
From January 2000 begins the Toyota adventure. In the position of Senior Manager Engine Research and Development leads the performance and reliability development of all the F1 engines: V10 series RVX 1,2,3,4,5; V8 series RVX 6 and 7.
Richard R. Divila
Educated at Sao Paulo Polytechnic,
Divila began working with the Fittipaldi brothers' Fitti-Kart company
in 1967 and stayed with the Brazilians when they came to Europe. In 1975
he designed the first Fittipaldi F1
chassis - the futuristic FD01. The following year he designed
the FD04 and its arrival coincided with Emerson
Fittipaldi's decision to quit McLaren. Divila
stayed with the Fittipaldis until the team folded in 1979. There followed
two years as a consultant in Formula 2, Indycars and sports-prototypes.
In 1985 Divila began working in F3000, moving from PMC to Eddie
Jordan and then First Racing. He designed a Formula 1 car
for First but the team failed to raise the money needed. At the start
of 1989, however, he joined Ligier.
The result was the hurriedly-produced Ligier-Ford JS33B
in 1990 and the Lamborghini-engined
JS35 in 1991. Guy
Ligier, however, had hired Frank
Dernie to be his new technical director in an effort to get
a big name to keep Renault as
his engine supplier in 1992 happy and when the JS35 was not immediately
competitive Divila was fired. He worked briefly with Fondmetal before
joining Minardi to work with Christian
Fittipaldi in 1992. He went on to work with Dominique
Delestre's Apomatox F3000 team and did freelance design work
with Courage for the Le
Mans 24 Hours. In 1995 he worked with Nissan in touring car
racing and for the DAMS F3000 team but has concentrated
on touring car racing in Japan in recent years, enjoying considerable
success with Nissan.

The Technological Committee comprises a selected group of experts on the specific methods applied to the motor racing sector. It includes authoritative university professors and researchers, and company engineers and researchers with proven experience, specialised in technological innovation concerning materials and construction methods, and aims to scientifically analyse and develop the contents of the various theme areas of the EXPOTECNICA Museum.
The Technological Committee's task will be to develop, from different points of view, all the milestones in construction techniques, together with the various industrial processes applied to the development of the racing car.
With a logic passing "from the racing track to the road", particular attention will be paid to the solutions experimented on racing cars which were later applied to series models. The construction techniques used and tested on racing cars, in fact, similar to "Research and Development" departments, are often modified to become industrial processes for series models.
The product areas developed by the Technological Committee in the context of
EXPOTECNICA will not only involve metals but also various other materials,
such as elastomers, polymers, compounds and composites, ceramics and other
innovative and special materials.
