Well Dressed Brothers


The brothers Maserati at the original workshop in Bologna. I don’t know the exact date here but it was before Alfieri died from liver complications in ’32.

The building has since been demolished. Which makes me a bit sad. It brings to mind the dilapidated Model-T factory in Detroit that I used to pass on my daily commute. We go to endless effort to restore the cars but forget almost entirely about where they came from; the situations that led to their development; the craftsman that breathed life into them.

    You’re so very correct. After seeing Jeremy, James and Richard tour the old TVR factory in Top Gear, it made me think of all the great and historic factories that have succumbed to time and “progress.” These amazing places will only survive on in stories and in photos like this. However, I do feel happy knowing that manufacturers like Ferrari and Porsche have hung on to some of their old brick and mortar buildings.

    Always interesting to see what else these photos captured, like the faces in the upstairs window.
