Alfa Romeo

11/11/2022
Good evening, friends!

I was planning visits to museums in Italy, and remembered the gift for my birthday from the SIO team - the Alfa Romeo book. The choice became obvious, I'm going to the Alfa Romeo museum!
The Alfa Romeo museum itself is located in Areza, province of Milan, in the territory of the company's idle plant, which stopped producing cars in 2003.

By the way, the book is a great gift, take note. There are a lot of quality pictures, a big photo archive of all Alfa Romeo models, detailed description of details. Such a book is a pleasure not only to read, but also to keep for years.

Alfa Romeo is an Italian manufacturer of premium cars, whose history began in 1906.

From 1932 to 1986 Alfa Romeo was owned by the Italian state holding IRI, after which Alfa Romeo became part of the Fiat Group, and since 2007 it has been part of the Fiat Group Automobiles S.p.A., which is why the company is now called Alfa Romeo Automobiles S.p.A.
This car brand definitely deserves attention. In 1950, the first Formula One World Championship was won by Giuseppe Farina in an Alfa Romeo 158. The following year Juan Manuel Fangio won the race in an Alfa Romeo car.
After the formation of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (FCA) in 2018, it was announced that Alfa Romeo would be re-released to rival Ferrari. Thus, the Alfa Romeo 8C has become a legendary race car that you definitely want to look at live.
The Alfa Romeo museum features 69 models from which you can trace the company's evolution. And also feel the spirit of a racer on the 880-meter track. There are parades of vintage Alfa Romeo cars and photo shoots on the track. It seems that I urgently need to schedule a photo shoot ;)
