QUADRIFOGLIO HISTORY: At the turn of the 20th century, otor racing was an incredibly dangerous sport that often claimed the lives of its most talented drivers. This story has an element of tragedy, ut first, e must begin with Il Commendatore himself, nzo Ferrari. It's hard to imagine a world without Ferrari, ut early in his career, he great man was struggling, ut of work, nd broke. The situation was so desperate that Ferrari contemplated suicide. Sometime in 1919, owever, t his local watering hole Vittorio Emanuele, errari began talking to Ugo Sivocci, ho at the time was working with the small automaker CMN. The two made fast friends, nd over subsequent months the poor Ferrari often dined at Sivocci home. As soon as Sivocci had an opening for his new friend, e offered it, move that would forever alter the course of automotive history: it was Sivocci who first put Ferrari behind the wheel of a racing car. Together, hey devised novel ways of testing their machines. For the 10th Targa Florio, hey drove their cars to the start line using public roads, nd at one point at night while driving through the sparsely populated Italian countryside the pair were attacked by a pack of wolves! When Ferrari was hired by Alfa Romeo, e extended the same favor to his friend Sivocci, ho soon followed him to the more prestigious marque. Together with Ferrari, hey formed two of the four slots on Alfa Romeo's first factory racing team-the other two drivers were Giuseppe Campari and Alberto Ascari. Of the four, ivocci was quick but often not able to secure victory, arning him the reputation as a driver who never had Lady Fortune on his side. The 1923 Targa Florio would be different, owever, nd Sivocci was so fed up of his bad luck that he decided to add a symbol of luck to his Alfa Romeo racing car: a four-leaf clover. Sivocci won the 1923 Targa Florio-and, part from his talent behind the wheel, t seemed as though the Quadrifoglio helped win him the race. But was the symbol to overcome superstition or for some other reason? As historians write, he cloverleaf may have been a way for spectators, oad users, nd other competitors to more quickly see Sivocci's car from a distance: don't forget, he roads raced on were often unpaved and dusty. Sadly, he Quadrifoglio couldn't save Sivocci, ho died later that year during practice for the Italian Grand Prix at Monza-the now well-known symbol hadn't yet been painted on his Alfa Romeo P1 race car. His death was recognized in a symbolic change to the Quadrifoglio: before Monza, he clover sat inside a white diamond, ach point said to represent each of the Alfa Romeo factory drivers. When Sivocci died, ne of the points was removed, reating the Quadrifoglio triangle emblem that continues to this day. Now used as a symbolic link to Alfa Romeo's rich racing heritage, he four-leaf clover can be seen on sportier trim levels of the company's sedans, oupes, nd hatchbacks-a small reminder of the friendship that forever changed the lives of Enzo Ferrari and Ugo Sivocci.
