ALFA ROMEO / MILANO and PARIS



Alfa Romeo is showing the city arms of Milan in Italy and a snake with a child in it's mouth. There are a lot of varieties of this emblem but they are almost always round. I'm showing a Alfa Romeo Paris emblem. Alfa built only 12 cars in Paris with this emblem. All the others are from Milan.
