Redirect /maestro/  /static/maestro/

in <VirtualHost> section. note the trailing slashes, otherwise you'd
redirect /maestroXYZ to /static/maestroXYZ (unless it's what you want)

if you want to keep the same hostname, set "UseCanonicalName off" or use two
virtual hosts. However I'd advise not to use multiple hosts for the same
content, unless you really must, and leave apache redirect to the ServerName
