A.L.F.A., the Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili (Lombard Automobile Factory Ltd.) was founded on 24 June 1910. Nicola Romeo purchased it five years later, making it Alfa Romeo. He put resources into racing, which he considered a strategic objective. From the mid-twenties onward Alfa won a long series of prestigious victories, putting the Milan company centre stage. In 1933 Alfa Romeo became part of the state-owned IRI (Istituto per la Ricostruzione Industriale – the Industrial Reconstruction Institute), expanding into aircraft engines at the same time.
The post-war years marked a momentous turning-point for Alfa Romeo as its strategy focused on large-scale production; in 1951 it officially withdrew from racing after winning the first two Formula 1 World Championships.
With the “Giulietta” range of cars (1954) followed by the “Giulia” (1962), Alfa Romeo rode the wave of success and achieved high levels of sales. The Arese plant opened, and under its President Luraghi Alfa Romeo decided to officially return to racing. The very turbulent seventies saw models launched in to new market segments and a new plant at Pomigliano d’Arco, as well as renewed success in racing (World Sportscar Championship). In 1986 Alfa Romeo changed hands once again, and became part of the Fiat Group.
