The future belongs to those who have a great history

1910

A.L.F.A. (Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili) was founded on June 24th, 1910 in Milan, Italy. Two of the traditional symbols of Milan were chosen to make up the badge – the cross of the municipality and the Visconti serpent, which were included on a disc with the lettering ALFA-MILANO printed around the edge. The two were divided by two Savoy-dynasty knots.

1915

The engineer, Nicola Romeo, took over the company and his surname was added to the badge. The badge was altered to read ALFA-ROMEO MILANO.

A golden laurel crown was added to the badge, symbolizing the victory at the first World Championship.

1946

During the war, the machines that produced the badges installed on the vehicles were destroyed, which lead to the creation of a Spartan single-colour (red) version of the badge.

1950

With the proclamation of the republic, the Savory-dynasty knots were replaced by two wavy lines and the badge restored all of its colour.

1972

The Pomigliano d’Arco Alfasud plant opened and the word MILANO was removed along with the wavy lines.

1982

The laurel wreath was removed and the diameter of the logo was increased. The badge’s formal elements and colours were redesigned with the simplification of the serpent and the re-composition of ALFA ROMEO in the Futura typeface.

The new ALFA ROMEO badge is the perfect match between geometry and proportion, measured in every single part. Every element has its specific colour, as each one highlights the exclusive positioning of Alfa Romeo expressing a bold and contemporary personality. The pyramidal texture on the background marks the brand character. Two different tones of grey melt together in a three-dimensional contrast of illuminations and shadows.
