The Family Home of Mario Andretti
If you are interested in car races and are familiar with the drivers, then you definitely need to visit this house, in which the racing champion Mario Gabriele Andretti was born. The famous driver was born in 1940 in Motovun, and there are many stories of how this could be the place where he started his successful career since he, as a young boy, could be seen in a wooden cartwheel going down the steep streets of Motovun. Later his family moved to Italy, and then to America. He is famous for winning the championships such as Cart-Champcar, Indianapolis 500 and and Formula One.
