The occasion is a bit too trivial for my taste, but the design is very good, as usual, frizio. The brain creates all kinds of lines around it. Clever and interesting.

Well, the central piece is a reference to the Alfa grille, the snake is part of the logo and refers to the Visconti family, the Quadrifoglio Oro refers to the Alfetta's of the 80s. I am not sure what the monogram on top is. It reminds me of the Rolls Royce logo ...

Do you happen to have an Italian euro or cent coin in your pocket/wallet? Look at it. ;)

As for the occasion being a little trivial, I agree. That is why Italy issues a 5 "Alfa Romeo centennial" silver collector coin this year. But that design (see obverse and reverse here) is very conventional. As a design study, so to say, I like Frizio's better: A design that is not too complex, in fact quite abstract, but recognizable if you combine the inscription and the other elements.

this is not the RR monogram but RI monogram (R-I = repubblica italiana) the same of other euro italian coins  :-)
probability the position is not correct... this is only a free idea  :-)
