Still smashing my iPad!
It's locking up between photobucket and this site.

I'm back home this weekend.

Let's get this started. I had to cheat the link button
This was a display wall matte black with shiny black lettering.
The logo looked like it was a machined piece of metal. Looked like a shield.
Or a big hubcap.

So we're finally home. I started uploading all my pics to photobucket.
I will upload pictures in order that I walked the museum. I have to say how impressed I was. I was really trying to ditch my family for the day but they insisted they come along... Let me tell you they enjoyed the time there as much as I did. They didn't rush me and were coming to find me every 5 minutes to tell me how cool the next section was.
Never have I been so impressed with an Italian museum as I was with this one. The layout, the exhibits, the multimedia, the details were phenomenal. It took about 10 minutes to get there out of the north side of Milano, there was plenty of parking, it was air conditioned, and in true Italian fashion had a fantastic bar/cafe at the end of it. They built a show room to sell new Alfas and jeeps right in the same building and I saw a young couple buying a car right after they walked thru the museum.
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves of the exhibits. What you don't see is the multimedia rooms that had VIrtual reality glasses that let you ride in the passenger seat around a race track in a 4C. They had a 4D movie theatre that showed an animated ride in progressively newer cars. We were strapped in racing seats which moved with the animation, if the car drove thru water you'd get blasted with a mist of water. If the car went off road into the grass something would whip at the back of your legs. I hope the animation is temporary as the quality wasn't that great but all in all it was still a great experience.
My only concern was at the end of the experience, when you get to the gift shop is where it falls apart for me. I had plenty of money saved up for memorabilia and merchandise. It was the most painful shopping experience. They had 1 guy behind the counter, there were plenty of customers, but they were out of products. They didn't have a golf shirt in my size ( just an xl which is large in North America). This guy would have to abandon his counter to go get me a hat in a back room.
Also that same night we all went to the Milano expo 2015 and at closing on our way out of the grounds, we came across a Fiat/jeep/Alfa store that was closed and inside was a carbon fibre skateboard in the shape of the Alfa logo in carbon fibre that the kids went nuts for and it wasn't even at the museum gift store. Oh well. I went for the cars right?
Hope you guys enjoy!
Ciao

Thanks for sharing Giovanni, this is definitely back on my bucket list. Great pictures but in the first half dozen I was beginning to wonder "how tall is this guy?" :)

Ha ha
I had a plan. I like the look of the oncoming car so I thought I would start from the front on every car then move my way around. Now that I had a chance to look at my pictures I don't know what I did.
I have these front ends off some cars, the *** end of others, now I'm sorting them and have to go thru my wife's pictures to see what I missed. Look at this beast. I got three pictures and not one of the side.
In my defence you should see what was around it...
Arrivederci
Giovanni



It was called the "Castagna" or the "chestnut"
The finishing was unbelievable. A work of art...and those were the pictures I got.

The museo Duetto is best avoided in all honesty.
When they restored it they got the nose wrong ....

I'm just playing, had a Museo Duetto pic
(...and it's about as cut and dried as the name Duetto so probably best not explored without any humour)


It's too sharp, IMO
