The story behind the image

Earlier today I posted an image that shows our Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 T.Spark standing on a meadow near Munich. It’s a nice shot but I commented that this most certainly is not the natural habitat of an Alfa Romeo 156 (or any Alfa Romeo, actually.)

Here I have an image of our beautiful Alfa in Italy, in Corenno Plinio, a small historic village at the Lago di Como in Northern Italy. Even if the stylish and modern car looks a bit like an alien object that has dropped from the sky, it is still a good match. Fristly, it’s an Italian car in a historic Italian village. Secondly, the tilted parking lot is pretty unusual if you’re used to the uber-correct markings in Italian cities. And thirdly, the tries to hide from the hot Italian sun in the shadows of a large tree.

Yes, it’s a good match, and I think it’s a nice image. I love it.
