Home / Social media / News / Italians love art, especially when it involves Lamborghini and Ducati. Actually, so do we.


In a celebration of art and automotive prowess, Automobili Lamborghini and Ducati have collaborated with renowned artist Paolo Troilo to transform two iconic models into mesmerizing works of art. The exhibition, aptly named “Art of creating myths,” showcased Troilo's masterpieces at Galleria Cavour in the heart of Bologna, within the vibrant atmosphere of Arte Fiera Bologna. At the centre stage were two vehicles: a Lamborghini Huracán EVO, christened "Minotauro," and a Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini, transformed into "Centauro." These exceptional pieces of automotive art belong to a single owner who sought to fuse the worlds of art and motors in a seamless blend of creativity and performance. Paolo Troilo, renowned for his hyper-realistic fingerpainting technique, applied his unique style to these vehicles, creating stunning visual representations. "Minotauro," adorning the Huracán EVO, embodies the fusion of Troilo's artistic vision with the iconic essence of Automobili Lamborghini. Through dynamic male figures meticulously crafted with fingertip precision, Troilo captures the essence of power, dynamism, and emotion inherent in the Huracán EVO driving experience. The result is a symbolic amalgamation of man, bull (representing Lamborghini's emblem), and the concept of myth, exuding an untamed, almost primal energy that resonates with automotive enthusiasts and art connoisseurs alike.

The grand unveiling took place at Galleria Cavour, a bastion of luxury and exclusivity in Bologna, with Automobili Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann and Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali revealing Troilo's masterpieces to a captivated audience of 200 attendees. Amidst the opulent surroundings, both CEOs emphasized the shared excellence and heritage of their brands, representing the pinnacle of Italian craftsmanship and Motor Valley prestige. The collaboration between Troilo and these esteemed automotive marques underscores the seamless harmony between art and the automotive world, proving that innovation and creativity know no bounds. "Minotauro" and "Centauro" were on display at Galleria Cavour as part of ART CITY Bologna to offer enthusiasts and art aficionados alike a rare opportunity to witness the convergence of two seemingly disparate worlds in a breathtaking display of creativity and craftsmanship. We’re not sure where the next public viewing will be, but if you stay up to date with the various Lamborghini channels, there will surely be an updated announcement. Of course, this will likely only be beneficial to those in Europe. It’s great to see automakers doing things like this to promote the arts, taking cues from the long line of BWM Art cars that have travelled the world to showcase the talents of some of the most iconic artists of our time.

Take a look at the YouTube video that shows off what has to be the world's coolest finger painting on a superbike, joined by the same kind of art on a supercar that was done a few years back to create an amazing pair of Italian artworks: Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini "Centauro" | Ducati
