MILAN, NETRALNEWS.COM - Car manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will reopen the Alfa Romeo Museum, which holds 110 years of history of the brand's history, on June 24, 2020.

Located in Arese, on the outskirts of Milan, the Alfa Romeo Museum (Museo Storico Alfa Romeo) is a true brand center that houses more than 200 historic cars, a documentation center, artifacts, and test tracks for dynamic activities.

The museum offers modern facilities to welcome visitors with every comfort:restaurants, shops, private event spaces, as well as sales showroom, among others.

The Alfa Romeo Museum is a link between the past, present, and future of the Italian car brand.

"This museum will reopen its doors on June 24, 2020, for the 110th anniversary of the Alfa Romeo brand," the FCA said in an official statement, as quoted on Friday (06/19/2020).

In the 1960s, the company museum was built inside the Arese headquarters in Alfa Romeo, where Biscione was moved after leaving Portello in Milan.

Inaugurated on December 18, 1976, the museum has for decades been organized to store the company's private collection, which can only be visited by appointment.

In 2011, the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage proposed for the Alfa Romeo Museum for protection as a historical place.

After being temporarily closed, the museum reopened to the public on June 24, 2015, after major restructuring and rebuilding work was carried out under the direction of architect Benedetto Camerana of Studio Camerana & Partners.

The reopening took place on the day of the inaugural launch of the new Giulia world, a symbol of the re-launch of Alfa Romeo.

The "new" Alfa Romeo Museum is now a place where 110 years of heritage are closely related to Italian history, which are told and explained to audiences from more than 120 countries.

Around 70 cars are displayed in public. They not only marked the evolution of the brand, but also the history of Alfa Romeo.

The museum's collection includes the first car branded A.L.F.A., 24 HP, Tipo P2 that won the World Champion in 1925, and Alfettas 158 and 159 which won the first two Formula 1 titles in history.
