Fathy Allam, general manager of Maserati at Fast Auto Technic Co, said: “We at Maserati enjoy and celebrate the creativity of Italian art and music that has inspired the world. There is a close relation between these and our cars, as we explore and execute the finest details in terms of technology, material and design in each Maserati model. Today, we are happy to be a part of this wonderful evening that is aimed at strengthening the ties between the two countries in the presence of such a graceful guest profile.”
