# I can't put a picture, title and author in the same page

I've tried to put a picture, title and author in the same page but I the command doesn't work. Furthermore the command \maketitle doesn't work now and I don't understand why. My idea is to aligne the picture in the top centre, che title right below centred and also the author, below title.

\documentclass[pt12]{article}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\title{\textbf{Calcolo delle caratteristiche di un motore reale}}
\author{\begin{tabular}{rl}
\textbf{Gruppo:} & First Name \\ & Second Name \\& Third Name \\ & Fourth Name
\textbf{Classe:} & $5^{\circ}CI$
\end{tabular}}
\date{}
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{afterpage}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\graphicspath{Immagini/}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\begin{figure}
\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{../../Pictures/Nautico.jpg}
\end{figure}
\pagecolor{cyan}
\afterpage{\pagecolor{white}}

• A couple of things: You don't need \begin{figure} .. \end{figure} to use \includegraphics. In fact, in this case you don't want it. Further, pt12 in the documentclass options should be 12pt, and \graphicspath{Immagini/} should be \graphicspath{{Immagini/}}. – Torbjørn T. Oct 9 '16 at 7:53

You are designing a title page, so it's better not to try to fit everything in a \maketitle command.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{afterpage}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\begin{titlepage}
\pagecolor{cyan}%
\afterpage{\pagecolor{white}}%
\LARGE
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{example-image-a}\\[3em]
{\bfseries Calcolo delle caratteristiche di un motore reale}\\[3em]
{\large
\begin{tabular}{rl}
\textbf{Gruppo:} & First Name  \\
& Second Name \\
& Third Name  \\
& Fourth Name \\
\textbf{Classe:} & $5^{\circ}CI$
\end{tabular}%
}
\end{center}
\end{titlepage}
\end{document}
