Maserati is a known Italian automotive company that manufactures luxury cars represented with an emblem decorated with a trident. It was first established on December 1, 1914 in Bologna. The headquarters is located in Modena. The Italian car giant Fiat S.p.A. took ownership of the company in the year 1993.
Alfieri, Bindo, Carlo, Ettore and Ernesto, also known as the Maserati brothers, were involved in manufacturing the cars starting in the 20th century. Three of them, namely Alfieri, Bindo and Ernesto were responsible for building Grand Prix cars for Diatto. Several years after, the production of race cars were suspended. Because of this, the very first Maserati car was created and founded. It was driven first by Alfieri who won the Targa Florio. Eventually, they began creating more race cars that are built with 4, 6, 8 and 16 cylinders.
The Fountain of Neptune was the inspiration for the trident logo that they are using. It was suggested by an artist named Mario to the Maserati brothers. They attributed the symbol to something that is best for the company since Neptune is known to represent strength and vitality. Moreover, his statue was used as a symbol of the home city of the company.
