Let’s take a look how Giulia and Stelvio are build
Welcome to our first blog post. We will try to brighten up your moments with original and
interesting content. Thank you for sharing your passion for Italian beauty with us.
Come with us inside the Cassino Plant, where Giulia and Stelvio are built, learn more about
how Alfa create these cars and get to know the people involved in this process. Originally
built in 1972, the Cassino plant started-out manufacturing the Fiat 126, the successor to the
iconic Fiat 500 – also known as the Cinque-cente, Bambino or That Cute Italian Bubble Car.
Today the Cassino operation is claimed to be one of the most advanced automated car
plants in the world. It can churn out up to 1260 cars every single day although it is currently
running at around 700 vehicles per day (320 Stelvios, 280 Giulias and 100 Giuliettas).
Driving an Alfa Romeo is an unmatchable experience. But where does that emotion come

the people who put their passion into creating our high-quality cars every day.
There are five main areas in Alfa’s Cassino complex, including the stamping press, body
shop, paint shop, assembly line, and plastics areas. Each is an amalgam of people, robots
and fully-autonomous micro buggies.
Impressively, with 1400 robots and 4300 workers operating across two shifts daily, the
factory can produce up to four different vehicles on the one line simultaneously.
How can we craft such lightweight bodywork for Giulia and Stelvio? By using automated
processes and advanced robots that can handle high-quality materials like aluminium and
At the Cassino Plant, people actively cooperate with nature, to make the facility sustainable
and to protect the biodiversity of the area, thanks to the biolake: an artificial basin that
naturally filter all the water used in the production process, with the aid of the vegetal
species that live around and in it.
The advanced machinery in our Cassino Plant allows us to carry out delicate operations, like
the cataphoresis and the spraying of the layers of paint, sensibly reducing our
Dealing with waste in a careful way can greatly affect the environmental impact of any
activity. Today we manage to send no waste to landfills thanks to the right initiatives and
following our five principles – REFUSE, REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE, RECOVERY.
