Colors that combine tradition with communication
During the international presentation of the new models Giulia and Stelvio MY20 to the media, in addition to numerous new products, the evolution of the use of color logic was explained. Alfa Romeo's designers have changed their approach to color with an even more emotional strategy that groups body colors according to "class" rather than just technology. There are four categories: Competizione, with clear references to the brand's sporting heritage, Metal, which highlights the brand's dynamic spirit, Solid, for those looking for value, and Old Timer, which evokes and interprets the Alfa Romeo heritage.
New Old Timer colors include the exquisite red 6C Villa d'Este, the breathtaking ocher ocher GT Junior and the new green Montreal that will debut in the Quadrifoglio MY20. The latest shade is a tribute to one of the brand's icons, Alfa Romeo Montreal, launched 50 years ago. The choice of colors based on careful analysis and innovative effects has always been one of Alfa Romeo's hallmarks: the Old Timer range draws on a prestigious heritage combined with technological innovation. The Alfa Romeo laboratories are constantly analyzing new effects, new pigments and new paint techniques to highlight the sculptural effect of the Giulia and Stelvio shapes. The colors associated with the cultural and historical heritage of the brand are closely associated with Italy.
The color palette thus fits perfectly into the architectural context of Italy's finest examples of architecture, the visual dialogue between car and country on which the latest marketing campaign is based, prepared in collaboration with AD Italia, Condé Nast's monthly, a luxury magazine about architecture, art, design and style. The project connects the world of design with the world of motorization through a photo essay in which our vehicles are shown in the yards of historic apartment buildings and against the backdrop of prestigious home interiors, carefully selected in collaboration with our partner AD Italia. Italy is an irresistible force that we see in the creativity of extraordinary people, and at the same time in private and unusual places and cities with a unique atmosphere.
In this project, AD Italia takes Alfa Romeo on a journey, treating its vehicles as true works of art and the epitome of Italian beauty. Style has its own language, as does color, which is not only an aesthetic but also a strategic element that distinguishes our cars. It was the color that guided the choice of some of the places used in the project. Among other things, this is why Alfa Romeo remains a timeless Italian icon. What's more, the campaign also touches on a very current topic, marked #stayathome, with a touch of elegance and a touch of irony that is needed now more than ever.
