I'm not 100% on this but I believe Fiat owns Ferrari and Ferrari owns Maserati. As far as Enzo's religious belief I have no idea. Although if I had to guess I would think being Italian and all he would have been raised Catholic. But thats just a guess.

I recommend trying a search on the web or Barnes and Noble for a book on Enzo. While he is a very important topic in any Ferrari discussion this is about the cars. Perhaps I'll make a new section for things like this.

Fiat owns I believe 90% of Ferrari, and Ferrari owns Maserati.
If you want to know about Ferrari himself, try specific books on him like Ferrari, the man the passion or something. Maybe a Google-search helps. If you really can find it I can look into some books, but I don't have any on Enzo Ferrari himself

The company is a non-feeling entity. It is, not as. So if the CEO ran it based on christian principles, that would still not make it a christian business.
However, not to stir the pot, but what is being a christian, or catholic? He left his wife for another woman. At the time of his birth, he would have been raised in the catholic church. If he continued going to services, mass, or even considered himself a catholic is subject to debate.
However, the catholic church considers anyone baptized in it, or converted to, a catholic for life. PERIOD! But whether you consider yourself would be up to you.

Don't think Fiat still owns 90% of Ferrari, last year or the year before they brought 33% of shares to the Milan (?) Stocjkk Exchange.

I'm not sure of the % of stock they own but they do own and control Ferrari. Power transferred to them when Enzo died.

By the way, a piece of trivia here, Enzo_Ferrari your signature is in the wrong color. Enzo always signed his name with a pen in his favorite color. That color? Purple! How do I know? When I was a kid in High school I'd go and hang out now and again at Ferrari of Dallas. Talk about F1 with the sales guys and such. Really nice guys they had there. Anyway, they received some promotional posters and the top sales person mailed his to Enzo with a letter asking him to autograph it. Sure enough it came back signed, in purple, with a letter from his office thanking him for all his had work, also signed in purple. At the time he suggested to me to get one and he'd mail it to Enzo for me. I never did and I regret it to this day...
