– MASERATI – The glamour and excellence of high-tech design. For more than a century Maserati is an Italian luxury vehicle manufacturer established on December, 1. 1914, in Bologna. The Maserati brothers, Alfieri, Bindo, Carlo, Ettore, and Ernesto were all involved with automobiles from the beginning of the 20th century. Alfieri, Bindo and Ernesto built 2-litre Grand Prix cars for Diatto. In 1926, Diatto suspended the production of race cars, leading to the creation of the first Maserati and the founding of the Maserati mark. One of the first Maseratis, driven by Alfieri, won the 1926 Targa Florio. Maserati began making race cars.The trident logo of the Maserati car company is based on the Fountain of Neptune in Bologna’s Piazza Maggiore. In 1920, one of the Maserati brothers, artist Mario, used this symbol in the logo at the suggestion of family friend Marquis Diego de Sterlich. It was considered particularly appropriate for the sports car company due to fact that Neptune represents strength and vigour. Additionally, the statue is a characteristic symbol of the company’s original home city. Alfieri Maserati died in 1932, but three other brothers, Bindo, Ernesto and Ettore, kept the firm going, building cars that won races. On July, 15. 2018., celebrate the passion of Alfa Romeo.  The Maserati tagline is “Luxury, sports and style cast in exclusive cars”, and the brand’s mission statement is to “Build ultra-luxury performance automobiles with timeless Italian style, accommodating bespoke interiors, and effortless, signature sounding power”. The company’s headquarters are now in Modena, and its emblem is a trident.
