Hall 3: Mythos Alfa Romeo
On Thursday, 19 September 2019, Hall 3 of the Technik Museum Sinsheim will open. It is a modern hall, which will henceforth house special exhibitions. The opening exhibition is called "Mythos Alfa Romeo" and it will be the first event to bring the 3,000 m² exhibition space to life.
Alfa Romeo is one of the most famous automotive developers of our time. The Italian manufacturer has played an active role in automobile racing from the early years and quickly became known for its successes. It already won many great victories in the pre-World War II era, but they were not to be the last. After the war, Alfa quickly got back into motor sport, winning titles in close succession. Whether these were in major Grand Prix, Formula 1, touring car or long-distance racing championships, Alfa has long been making a name for itself in technology and design.
Designers like Pininfarina and Zagato worked for the company and designed timeless classics of automotive history. Alfa has not only time and time again set milestones in motor sport, but has also always been a point of contact and a hub for important personalities on the automotive scene. Racing drivers like Tazio Nuvolari, Enzo Ferrari or Jean Alesi as well as constructors and designers continued to develop the brand and bring it to life. As a result, most people associate Alfa Romeo not just with its cars but with an entire attitude to life.
The new exhibition at the Technik Museum Sinsheim, created in close collaboration with Alfa Romeo, offers an overview of the company's history in motor sport as well as in design. It starts with the pre-war period and top models such as a 6c "Mille Miglia" and continues with design icons like the Montreal, right up to very rare cars, such as the Alfa Romeo Matta.
The new special exhibition "Mythos Alfa Romeo" can be visited daily from 9 am to 6 pm from Thursday, 19 September 2019, in the new Hall 3 of the Technik Museum Sinsheim. The visit is included in the museum's total admission price.
