    Okay, so when WAS Enzo really born? 2/18 or 2/20? Here's what Wikipedia says, supposedly based on the actual birth certificate:

    "Enzo Ferrari was said to have been born on 18 February 1898 in Modena, Italy and that his birth was recorded on 20 February because a heavy snowstorm had prevented his father from reporting the birth at the local registry office; in reality, his birth certificate states he was born on 20 February 1898, while the birth's registration took place on 24 February 1898 and was reported by the midwife."

    What do all of you think?

    Well, to me a birthday is the day of one’s birth, regardless of the “official records.” I’m not sure Italian bureaucrats would agree with that point of view, though. ;)

    Welcome Naro! Sounds like a great school project! I wish my kids were as enthusiastic about Ferrari as you. How can I help? Also, what grade are you in?

    Look forward to helping you!

    Cheers

    Interesting! My grandmother was born in 1904 in a small mountain village in Sicily. It was not recorded until 2 days later...T

    I don’t know, Paul.

    If he’s still working on the school project nearly 17 years later, I’m not sure even you could help him.

    I think he signed up before you. He should be welcoming you.
