Alfa Romeo has once again has chosen Simmetrico, to announce the return to F1.

 

During the press conference the CEO of FCA, Mr. Sergio Marchionne, revealed the news of the strategic, commercial and technological agreement between Alfa Romeo and Sauber F1.

 

Simmetrico organized the set up and the audio-video production to unveil the new car in World Premiere during the press conference. The location of the event was the historical Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese, where Simmetrico had already accompanied the launch of the Giulia Quadrifoglio with a narrative based on the brand values.

 

Simmetrico’s skills and strong relationship with the brand were perfect prerequisite to develop this project. Encompassing the narration of Alfa Romeo’s history in F1 from 1950, passing through all its victories, the event conceived by Simmetrico was able to pay tribute to Alfa Romeo’s legendary sporting history as well as launch its new chapters to come.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio

For the first SUV in the history of the Alfa Romeo brand, Simmetrico was selected to reveal the Stelvio to the press.
Simmetrico was commissioned to design, produce and supervise the direction and coordination of all phases of the event which saw the construction of a temporary tailor-made structure in the heart of Saint Moritz, of 17x20meters and 7 meters high.

Inside, the concept took shape when a large 14x4m video surface opened like a window overlooking the Stelvio Pass, the highest mountain pass in Italy with the 75 most striking hairpin bends in Europe. Journalists thus found themselves at the center of the scene that enhanced the thrill of driving and maximum performance, in perfect coherence with the spirit of the brand. After the presentation, the guests were welcomed for the gala dinner at the Saint Moritz Country Club.

An event that involved three hundred Italian and international journalists for two weeks, spent alongside Alfa Romeo to reaffirm its values once again, that of placing man and his emotions at the center of each project.

 

 

PRIVATE EVENT

The production and set up involved 90 people to transform the central hall in an unexpected dome. This event was followed by Simmetrico from the the concept ideation to the design, from executive production to direction.

The foyer became a sort of flowered tunnel made of ivy-clad and roses archways. Specific light effects recreated an immersive walk-in environment.

The central hall revealed to the guests with a 450sqm light projected convex surface, developed on central elliptical dome 26x17mt wide and 8.60mt high. The dome was enlighted by several custom scenes made by gobo projections, recreating dreamy scenarios like constellations, flowers, graphic patterns, leaves, decors and the spouses logo.

Ten international artists performed on stage, set with a main projection surface (850xh350cm) and a motorized LED screen (700xh500cm) to show the video contents. Two projection surfaces (250xh400cm) completed the proscenium set up.
Simmetrico also conceived and produced the videos shown on the circular side walls: eight projection surfaces (200xh400cm) embedded in curved walls, emphasized by printed tulle graphics and bougainvillea branches. To make the event more distinctive, Simmetrico conceived and produced original soundtracks.

Florists team set 850mt of fresh flowers and plants decorations, 114 tons of roses of different varieties and 15 tons of hydrangeas, including decorations made with bougainvillea, lemon trees, ivy and fern plants.

ALFA ROMEO “LA MECCANICA DELLE EMOZIONI”

Balocco, Turin (Italy)
10
th 21st May 2016

With the International Media Drive of Giulia and Giulia Quadrifoglio, Alfa Romeo wanted to emphasize and reaffirm the values that inspired the conception and design of the two car models: to create cars able to put human beings and emotions at the center.

The event began with a gala dinner at the Castello di Oleggio, where video mapping on the diners’ tables shaped the aesthetics of the car, associating it with the values of the brand. The following day, the test drive took place in Balocco, where journalists boarded the cars, alongside professional drivers, for a real hot lap. For the test every journalist wore a special bracelet, used today by many of the world’s most famous research centres and by NASA, to detect the electrical activity of the skin, the blood pressure and heart rate. These emotional data, related to the car’s telemetry and performance, highlight the close bond that Alfa Romeo creates between man and vehicle, between emotion and performance.

In addition to the data, the faces of journalists were also recorded through go-pro cameras installed on board. Everything was processed in real-time and transmitted on the large 5x3m LED screen and ten 55’ monitors in the hall with a split screen effect which allowed each journalist to see their performance again immediately after their lap on the track.

The event demonstrated how The mechanics of emotions is not just the payoff of a brand but a tangible reality, an experience that can test all drivers on board an Alfa Romeo.
