Alfa Romeo Museum

 

The Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese, near Milan, Italy, opened in 1976. The brand started life as A.L.F.A (Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobile) in 1910 when Ugo Stella bought Darracq, a French car manufacturer having little luck on the Italian market. A.L.F.A. built its first racing car in 1911 and entered it in the Targa Florio, where its technology caused quite a stir. With the outbreak of World War I, A.L.F.A. put car manufacture on hold and joined a group of companies led by Nicola Romeo who were in the business of producing military hardware. The Alfa Romeo emblem was created in 1918 and car racing resumed in 1920 with legendary Giuseppe Campari at the wheel. Alfa Romeo went on to win countless trophies in races including the Targa Florio road race in Sicily, the Mille Miglia (thousand miles) in northern Italy, the 24-hour Le Mans in France and of course Formula I.
The museum, spread over almost 5000 m2 on six floors, covers nearly a century of Alfa Romeo and its products: cars, commercial and farm vehicles, locomotives, buses, trams, marine and aircraft engines. The main attraction is undoubtedly the valuable collection of over 100 Alfa Romeo cars, most of which are still in working order.
