[…] “Alfa Romeo Museum connects past and future of a great brand.” […]

The project:

Location: Alfa Romeo Historical Museum – Arese (MI) – Italy

Metalceilings: Atena S.p.A.

Located in Arese, in the province of Milan, Alfa Romeo Historical Museum preserves the essence of a legendary brand. Elegance, style and Made in Italy come together in this magnificent building to create an extraordinary exhibition. The museum showcases a vast collection of Alfa Romeo’s iconic vehicles, spanning from the early 20th century to the present day. Visitors can immerse themselves in the rich history and innovation that has made Alfa Romeo a symbol of automotive excellence worldwide.

The building tells the story of the brand through a project that highlights its values: presence through time, beauty and speed.

One hundred years after the birth of the famous “Quadrifoglio” brand, Alfa renews its showrooms with metal ceiling systems that, with their minimalist design, characterise and enhance the enormous automotive heritage that has been preserved. These metal ceiling systems not only serve as a visual representation of the brand’s values but also create a modern atmosphere in the showrooms. The use of essential design elements further emphasises Alfa’s commitment to innovation and cutting-edge technology.

For this prestigious building, Atena created more than 5,000 square metres of metalceiling using Atena Enigma and Brett Parallel systems. Chosen for their refined aesthetics and high visual impact, panels lay on special Omega profiles, emphasising a minimalist style that blends perfectly with the enormous automotive heritage. Atena Enigma and Brett Parallel systems were carefully selected not only for their visual appeal but also for their functionality. These panels enhance the overall aesthetic of the building, ensuring a pleasant and immersive experience for visitors exploring the rich automotive history within the museum.

The two systems, completely monochrome in dark grey or white, are designed to provide great performance: quick installation, easy access to the plenum, optimal sound absorption, and perfect flatness.


Metalceiling systems:

The most versatile of the side-by-side panel systems, Enigma, can be installed with 5 different hidden structures. It is available in either a right- or bevelled-angle version and offers a choice of different sizes to suit design and location requirements. Enigma’s hidden structures provide an elegant and contemporary aesthetic. With its versatile options, Enigma can effortlessly adapt to various design preferences and spatial constraints. The panels are quick and easy to install, ensuring perfect integration with the surrounding architecture.

Atena Brett Parallel, made up of metal panels in different sizes, lay on visible “C” shaped parallel beams, giving metalceiling a flat linearity.





Atena metalceilings satisfy any desire while exhibiting refined simplicity. The panels can be customised with a wide range of finishes and colours to create a unique and eye-catching environment. In addition, Atena ceilings’ modular design allows for easy maintenance and access to the underlying infrastructure.
