Come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant…to Arese! The Alfa Romeo Museum is now open to the public for the first time in years.
If you waited a long time to finally see cars like the Carabo, the BAT coupes,
the DTM cars, or any Alfa dream car, you do not have to wait for a concours, Goodwood, or any other event. In 2015, you can book a flight or take the chance to put a few miles on your car to feast your eyes on the crown jewels of one of Italy's most revered car manufacturers.
All the cars are mesmerizing, and visiting the museum can greatly help in ticking off a few items on your bucket list. You won't regret it.
I am well aware of the commercial nature of the Museum re-opening. I won't exclude that Marchionne was about to sell the collection if Alfa Romeo had less appeal than it has now. It is definitely good news for everyone, and should help petrolisti show their support for the brand.
In my opinion, the best part of it is the entrance to the first floor of the exposition, which has been made to look like the inside of a human Heart. The visitor has the experience of touching with the hands the passion that drove Alfa over the years and what, hopefully, will drive its engineers in the future.
The end of the tour is a parade of the famous 33, with the two ’75 and ’76 Championship-winning TT12 and SC12 standing side by side, a TZ2, two F1s—and saying farewell is the 1993 155 V6Ti DTM that won the DTM championship with Nicola Larini at the wheel.
