The Formule Libre Circuito del Savio was first held on a 27-mile temporary road course on the open roads around Ravenna in 1923. Enzo Ferrari’s Alfa Romeo RL won that year and he repeated that success a year later on a truncated nine-mile course. The race was held for another two years with Emilio Materassi and the Count Gastone Brilli-Peri successful.

Legend has it that Ferrari met the parents of fallen World War I fighter pilot Francesco Baracca after his 1923 victory. Ferrari later reported that it was Baracca’s mother, Countess Paolina, who suggested that he should adopt the Prancing Horse emblem that had adorned her son’s aircraft as his racing logo.
