Alfavelate, Gippo Salvetti’s latest book, historian and collector for over forty years of Alfa, takes the reader to discover the car that, under the Museum in Arese,waiting to come back to life and light. A book that, thanks to the beautiful photos by Sandro Bacchi, shows to many fans of the brand in the world, the Alfa who have lived the story of a single dayor that have been the beginning of a successful series.
Here’s what the author says in this book: “…All us collectors dream of finding the automobile of a lifetime inside an old, abandoned barn. Nevertheless, being able to lift a “shroud” and discover something that has been long forgotten will always be a huge thrill. Many such “shrouds” still cover the Alfa Romeos that silently repose in the Museum at Arese as they await more deserving accommodation – and we believe that everyone, Alfa enthusiasts and non, should be able to share the joy of unveiling them with us. Even if it only means looking at them, knowing that “they’re there”, that they still “live” even though they cannot be bought. They’re not for sale because, as of today, they belong to everyone. …”
