City of Milan gifts Alfa Romeo with bronze statue to commemorate the brand's 100th year

In line with their 100th year anniversary, Alfa Romeo is being given a lavish four-day party this weekend - from June 24 to 27 - courtesy of the city of Milan. Very impressive. We kind of wish that someone will do that for us when we hit three digits, too.

The event for the celebrant will be hosted by a number of groups that will pay tribute to the iconic Italian brand, who for 100 years - and counting, has been one of the most sought-after and widely respected car brands in the world. Among the groups that will be throwing this party for Alfa Romeo include the Milan City Council, the Fiera Milano Expo, the Monza Race Track, and, of course, the Alfa Romeo Museum.

Likewise, an anniversary of this magnitude deserves something that should be talked about for years to come and in this particular case, that ’something’ is a bronze sculpture of one of Alfa Romeo’s most iconic vehicles, the 1900 Disco Volante. The sculpture, which was donated by the Registro Italiano Alfa Romeo or ’RIAR’ and designed by artist Agostino Bonalumi with some much-needed assistance from the Centro Stile Alfa Romeo, was built to commemorate the Italian brand’s rich history of being one of the automotive world’s most respected brands. After all, you don’t get to last 100 years without being respected, right?

For its part, Alfa has not only lasted longer than most car brands have ever existed, but the combination of longevity and the continued pursuit of producing top-quality cars will only make this 100th year anniversary all the more gratifying with the thought of another one hundred years - possibly, even longer - becoming all the more attainable.

Happy 100th, Alfa Romeo!

Well, the good thing about this car manufacturer is that they doesn’t stick their design on their vintage styling unlike the other company that we known. The current production looks so modern and you will not seems to notice that it has been in the industry for almost a centennial now!

Wow! I can’t imagine that this luxurious brand has been in the industry for almost a 100 years now! I just wonder if 1900 Disco Volante is their first production and why they used it in the sculpture.

Alfa romeo is one of the iconic car manufacturer that produces such luxurious production. They really deserved to stay on the line.

Whoa! I can’t believe it..So it’s Alfa Romeo’s Birthday,,, so that’s why their stlye looks very primitive...lol!!

Wow, that’s really gorgeous statue. I am thinking how much millions they spent on this? It’ll be another tourist attraction!

Nice, I wonder how much does it costs to build one.

Well, that’s not even look like a statue. I think that’s a big trophy!

This is a 1900 model of alfa romeo, some call it (flying saucer) for me it looks more of a fish, but this baby’s worth is 1 or 2 million euro. kinda expensive, isn’t it?

I agree. I guess this is a tribute to speed racer.

Go Speed Racer, Go!!!
