I like the Alfa Romeo badge, it has that coat of arms look you expect to see on a the top pocket of a wealthy man’s blazer. It’s nice. But if you look closer you’ll notice there’s actually a serpent eating a person on there, which is a bit bizarre. I’m down with symbolism and imagery, but I had to know what that was all about.
Apparently, that symbol is called a biscione, and the little guy getting eaten is actually a Saracen or Moor (aka: a Muslim). So the whole serpent motif going on there symbolizes the Crusaders’ defeat of the infidels. Neat.
