Anyone involved in a physically demanding activity, such as car racing, has to exercise on a regular basis. Schedule
permitting, Emanuele stays fit with 30 minutes of daily gymnastics and by running 40 kilometers (25 miles) every
week. The exercise room in his house in Rome can hold its own against any commercial health spa. It is fully
equipped by Fassi, Italy's renowned manufacturer of exercise machines.

onto a mountain bike, or straps on roller-blades.

the drivers ready for the coming racing season.
Finally, there are water sports. Emanuele is an avid water skier, swimmer and scuba diver. Check out the page on
