Maserati is a company belonging to the automotive group Fiat SpA and manufactures luxury sports car. Maserati was founded in 1914 by four brothers Alfieri, Ettore, Ernesto and Bindo Maserati . Originally they were devoted to the preparation of engines, later in 1926 they began to build cars. Their logo was inspired by the weapon of Neptune that represented all his strength and power. In 1920 one of the Maserati brothers, the artist Mario Maserati, used this symbol in the logo at the suggestion of family friend Marquis Diego de Sterlich. It was considered particularly appropriate for the sports car company due to fact that Neptune represents strength and vigor; additionally the statue is a characteristic symbol of the company's original home city.
