“Monza, the Temple of Speed”: the fifth and final episode of the exciting Alfa Romeo docuseries “Beyond the Visible” is now available

06 May 2023

Monza – The Temple of Speed is now available on Alfa Romeo’s social media and its YouTube channel. The fifth and final unmissable episode of the digital project takes viewers behind the scenes and beyond” with the Alfa Romeo F1 Team as they compete in the most popular motor racing contest in the world. The compelling Alfa Romeo docuseries has thrilled all motorsport fans and the merely curious who don’t regularly follow F1. It has now reached its epilogue, having experienced success for five engaging episodes: “Before we hit the ground”, “Trust is gained”, “The Hidden Backbone” and “Measuring the unmeasurable”.

Monza the spiritual home of Alfa Romeo

Episode 5 is a veritable tribute to the most iconic of the international Formula 1 circuits. Monza is the spiritual home of Alfa Romeo; more than 100 years since its inauguration, it is now known as the “Temple of Speed”, the setting for exciting sports events that have written indelible chapters in the history of motorsport. On this track, Alfa Romeo won the first Formula 1 title in history on September 3, 1950, with the Alfetta 158 driven by Nino Farina. The rest is history: Tazio Nuvolari, Juan Manuel Fangio and many other heroic drivers contributed to Alfa Romeo’s exciting sporting tradition during a century of great social and motoring evolution.

According to those who have had the opportunity to test themselves out on this track since 1922, Monza is a different experience from all the others. It’s extremely fast and technical, puts drivers’ skills to the test, and it’s extremely easy to make a mistake there. However, Monza not only challenges drivers’ skills; the entire team of engineers and mechanics are also called on to overhaul the car’s configuration and setup.

Analysis of the data and development is complex, and the resulting setup is carried out practically ad hoc, the aim being to put the driver in a position to express the best of himself on a track where the action never stops, where overtaking is possible at various points, and where the speed goes up to the limit, alternating with intense braking.

The alchemy between performances and fans

The alchemy created between the performances on the tarmac and the emotions of the fans packed into the stands breathes life into the magic of the Monza Grand Prix: an unmissable, unique event. Monza is the living museum of Italian motorsport, where Alfa Romeo has written the greatest chapters in its history of noble Italian sportsmanship.

Cristiano Fiorio, Alfa Romeo F1 Manager: “Beyond the visible” was an exciting adventure. The episode on Monza, our spiritual home, ended a very successful project. I'd like to thank the entire team who were all very professional while working on it. We’re delighted that we’ve managed to bring the F1 pits to people other than the experts in the field. What's next? The only thing I can say is: stay tuned!

Julie Mehretu’s BMW Art Car Celebrates its World Premiere at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

The 20th BMW Art Car is being presented to the public for the first time today at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Designed by renowned New York-based contemporary artist Julie Mehretu, the project transforms the BMW M Hybrid V8 racecar into a performative work of art, continuing a longstanding tradition of BMW Art Cars and competitive racing. Just a few weeks after its World Premiere in the French capital, the newest edition in the storied BMW Art Car collection will compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

“The whole BMW Art Car project is about invention, about imagination, about pushing limits of what can be possible. I don’t think of this car as something you would exhibit. I am thinking of it as something that will race in Le Mans. It’s a performative painting. My BMW Art Car was created in close collaboration with motorsport and engineering teams,” says Julie Mehretu. “The BMW Art Car is only completed once the race is over.”

The collaboration between BMW and Julie Mehretu also includes a joint commitment to a series of PanAfrican Translocal Media Workshops for filmmakers, which will tour various African cities in 2025 and 2026, and will culminate in a major exhibition at the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa in Cape Town.

“The BMW Art Cars are an essential part of our global cultural commitment. For almost 50 years, we have been cooperating with artists who are just as fascinated by mobility and design as they are by technology and motorsports. Julie Mehretu's vision for a racing car is an extraordinarily strong contribution to our BMW Art Cars series,” said Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG. “Julie Mehretu has created more than an amazing Art Car. Her ideas provided the impetus for us to expand the cultural commitment of our Art Cars to promote the creativity of young artists in Africa.”
