Available for auction is an illuminated Martini Racing Alfa Romeo Racing sign. This sign measures 19" x 19" x 3" and displays the iconic Martini Racing livery and the Alfa Romeo Racing symbol.
The idea for the logo struck designer Romano Cattaneo in the Piazza Castello in central Milan. High on the wall of the Filarete Tower were several heraldic interpretations of the Biscione Visconteo, the coat of arms of Milan, and of the Visconti family that ruled it in medieval times. Biscione essentially means "grass snake," and the icon's association with Milan may stem from a bronzed serpent souvenir brought to the city from Constantinople by Arnolf II of Arsago. That image plus a representation of Milan's official flag—a red cross on a white background—are the elements that have defined all nine Alfa logos.
The sign features a translucent plexiglass front with an aluminum frame. An official Alfa Romeo Racing Division sticker can be seen along the frame.
The sign is illuminated by LED lights and is powered by a 220V UK plug. The buyer is responsible for shipping, handling, and fees.
