44 conferences and more than 80 speakers. Sixty cars, 10 prototypes and dozens of objects that are usually not exhibited have been unveiled to the public. Hundreds of documents, photographs, and videos from the archives in Alfa Romeo’s Documentation Centre. These are just some of the numbers of the first 4 editions of Backstage, a series of conferences launched in 2019 to explore the history of the brand through the items in the Collection that are preserved in the Museum’s “backstage”. In these first editions, we have talked about cars, but also about the people, the great victories and impossible challenges, the innovative projects, alternative productions (the kitchen), lesser-known fields of Alfa Romeo’s operations, such as motorboating or aircraft engines, even works of art. The conferences are conceived, hosted and moderated by Lorenzo Ardizio, curator of the Museum and director of the Documentation Centre. This journey through the more than one-hundred-year history of Alfa Romeo, however, would not have been possible without the participation of many people who have shared their testimony and experience with us and with the audience: former employees of Alfa Romeo, historians, journalists, drivers, members of Alfa Romeo clubs, relatives of leading personalities like Fangio, Luraghi or Sivocci, and many more. Museo Alfa Romeo and all Alfisti who follow our events in large numbers, both live and by connecting online, are deeply grateful to all of them. Starting from the 2021 edition, in fact, all videos of our backstage conferences are streamed online and are available on the Museum’s digital channels – Facebook and YouTube – both in the Italian original and with simultaneous translation into English. As always, in creating the program for the new season, we have collected the requests and proposals of our fans and clubs. In addition to two very important anniversaries – the 100th anniversary of the Quadrifoglio and the 60th anniversary of Autodelta – there will be many more Alfa Romeo stories to rediscover and explore this year. Stay tuned!
