« on: February 25, 2013, 08:50:40 PM »
If you'd like to know details of manufacture for your car, send an email to the following email address:

    centrodocumentazione@alfaromeo.com

A nice chap called Marco Fazio who works for Alfa Romeo will send you whatever details of manufacture they have on file.

Example response:

Quote
Dear Mister Bottcher,
 
with reference to your request we are informing you as follows.

The body colour is metallic light grey.
 
Yours, Sincerely,
     
          Marco Fazio

Thanks for the link to the video of Marco.
Excellent video footage of a range of cars. You have to admire the passion...plus the accent!!

That one video has done more to underline that there is indeed some passion left in the old firm than all the advertising I've seen over the last 20 years.
Alister
14 Alfa's since 1977. 
Currently 1973 GTV 2000, a couple of Mercs,  a '14 Beetle (yes, seriously......) and a 911 on the way
Gone......far to many to list

Couldn't agree more! I've just emailed Marco about my 33 16V, excited for his reply.

A recent update, having enquired 4 weeks ago. 
As an initial step, for 30 Euro you can obtain confirmation of manufacture date, colour, market of original delivery and confirmation of chassis/engine number match via an email. 
To obtain the Certificato Di Origine is 70 Euro. 
They were quick to respond (although some delays due to COVID 19) and very helpful.
