Inspect the pads and rotors for abnormal wear. Take the pads out of the caliper and clean everything up and relube the caliper pins and contact points, and reinstall.

I would change the pads to a more expensive, better material- usually, squealing is because the pad composition is too hard- get something nice from an Alfa specialist
