Arese - The Alfa Romeo 'La Macchina del Tempo' Museum in Arese, just outside Milan, is to reopen to the public on June 30. The new Giulia sports sedan, launched globally on June 24, will take pride of place and remain at Arese until July 15. The collection was originally put together during the first half of the 1960s.

The museum, which opened in 1976, holds all the most significant pieces in the historic Alfa Romeo collection, closed for restoration in 2011, when the factory site was decommissioned. Renovation work on the museum, chosen to host the global relaunch of the the marque, began in summer 2014, led by architect Benedetto Camerana. The project took less than a year to complete. The key focus of the project is the red structure that runs across the entire complex. The 69 models on exhibit are those that most represent the evolution of the marque and the history of the car. They include the first A.L.F.A, the 24 Hp, and the legendary winners of the 'Mille Miglia' race, such as Tazio Nuvolari's 6C 1750 Gran Sport, the bodied 8C Touring vehicles and the Gran Premio 159 Alfetta 159 with which Juan Manuel Fangio won the Formula One world championship. There is also the Giulietta, the iconic Fifties car, and the 33 TT 12. The show ends with interactive and immersive experiences, including virtual reality 360 degree short films, and there is a room in which visitors can sit on interactive chairs and watch 4D films of Alfa Romeo's legendary successes.
