Ferrari revealed that it will take part in this week’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant that celebrates the 60th year of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II as the monarch of the United Kingdom. The event, scheduled from May 10 to 13, 2012, will be held at the Windsor Castle. Ferrari’s pride as the Italy’s icon of excellence will once more be acknowledged during the event, when the marque’s clients and collectors parade some of the most elegant historic and contemporary Ferraris through the grounds of Windsor Castle.
The vehicles will remain on display until the end of the Diamond Jubilee Pageant. Ferrari’s metal horses will be complimented by another icon of Italian excellence – the real horses of the 4th Mounted Carabinieri Regiment.
The regiment is due to perform the Historic Carosello, a showcase of horsemanship extraordinaire – showing the best of the skills of the horses and their riders. Carabinieri’s Carosello features a magnificent demonstration of horsemanship. During the drill, the Carabinieri will perform the elaborate yet fluid quadrilles, equestrian rides choreographed to music.
Carosello culminates in the Carabinieri's iconic and thrilling final charge. The Diamond Jubilee Pageant will be graced by the Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the final evening, with Ferrari Chairman Luca di Montezemolo representing the iconic Italian carmaker. Ferrari, symbolized by the prancing horse, has been of the source of Italian pride and an icon of excellence. Equally iconic is the 4th Mounted Carabinieri Regiment with their Carosello, riding actual horses signifying centuries of tradition and history.
