Bürstner is a leading manufacturer of mobile homes and motorhomes. And not for nothing: The company’s 55-year history has been shaped by our passion for inimitable design, the desire for practical innovation and the commitment to provide a unique service. Or, more precisely, to meet a clear goal: Anyone who travels with a Bürstner should feel at home wherever they are. When he was barely 30 years of age, the master joiner Jakob Bürstner opened his own construction and furniture workshop in what is now the Neumühl district of Kehl. The busy young entrepreneur quickly gained a growing customer base and number of orders thanks to his excellent craftsmanship. Jakob Bürstner shifted the focus of the business from building carpentry to interior fittings and furnishings. He soon received large orders from Deutsche Bahn, fitting out train stations with craftsmen he had trained personally, and furnishing the newly built homes for railway staff at the same time. Gerhart Bürstner, the son of the company’s founder, was convinced that there was a bright future ahead for mobile home holidays. In cooperation with a regional company offering chassis solutions, he developed a solid structure for providing excellent furnishings. Bürstner was the first German manufacturer to bring out a motorhome based on the new Renault Master, under the name Delfin. It reflects all of Bürstner’s positive brand values and impressed customers with its comfortable driver’s cab that would be right at home in a large limousine.

24 June 1910. In Milan a new company is founded with the name of A.L.F.A. (Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili). A few years later, Neapolitan entrepreneur Nicola Romeo takes over the company and changes its name to Alfa Romeo. From the 24 HP – the first model – to the green Quadrifoglio badge. From the mythical Tazio Nuvolari and Enzo Ferrari, to the legend of Nino Farina and Juan Manuel Fangio. From victory in the first motor racing world championship with the P2, to conquering the first Formula 1 championship with the Alfetta 158. From the Giulietta to the Spider, from the Giulia dynasty to the Tipo 33 project. Rediscover with FCA Heritage the achievements, the cars and the people that contributed to the Alfa Romeo myth. The idea for the Alfa Romeo crest was born at tram-stop in Milan. Romano Cattaneo, a great friend of Giuseppe Merosi, was in Piazza Castello waiting for a number 14. Looking at the Castello Sforzesco’s Filarete Tower, his attention was caught by the Biscione Visconteo, the snake or dragon symbol of the Visconti family which had dominated mediaeval Milan. Romano suggested the image to Merosi as a crest for the newly created A.L.F.A. It was a good idea, explicitly associated with Milan, but something was still missing. Merosi and Cattaneo tried different versions: the most convincing one showing the Biscione dragon on one side, and the emblem of the City of Milan, a red cross on a white background, on the other. A dark blue crown with an external diameter of 65 mm circled the two heraldic crests, on which was written in gold ALFA above and MILANO below, separated by two Savoy knots, to honour Italy’s royal family. This crest of arms logo was shown to Ugo Stella. Immediately enthusiastic, Stella requested that a definitive version be prepared and ready in time for the cars’ production. Its best-selling model came with Torpedo open bodywork and could accommodate four to seven people, as could the closed bodywork Limousine version. It also produced two-seat Spiders as well as two "Tipo Corsa" racing models, also two-seaters.
Taking our past into the future with Carolina Reviglio! Carolina enjoyed a carefree childhood in the Piedmont countryside. With many cousins and friends, the passion for culture was instilled from an early age. Surrounded by beauty and art in the family mansion Cimena, expertly curated by her grandmother namesake, Carolina. On the paternal side of the family, her Venetian grandmother was equally influential. The unique character and rich culture of Venice, epitomizes Carolina. While travelling often, she feels most at home, in the isles of Venice. Schooled in Italy and the United States, lived in provinces throughout the length of Italy, Carolina considers herself truly Italian, with an international vision. “My country is rich in heritage, but poor in the pocket to keep it so. It saddens me to see so many buildings in a state of disrepair.” She has honed the skills of renovation and interiors of historic buildings, since 1987. Learning by trial and error, spurned on by failure and ultimate success, Carolina has grown and prospered. Now is the time to give back. Helping artisans of all disciplines to find work and ply their trade with pride. Matching projects to professionals and vice versa. As Heritage Doyenne, Carolina’s primary contribution to this unique initiative, is to encourage the participation of Heritage Ambassadors. This cause is yet another open avenue, to take our past into the future. By intertwining culture and heritage, to create more synergy. “Only once we fully understand where we come from… and truly appreciate our heritage… can we imagine a fabulous future filled with the richness of our past. Life is ours to design!” ~ Carolina Reviglio
