Andrea Livio, a director by profession, a passionate traveller and motorbike fanatic, has completed a round-the-world trip on a Moto Guzzi Stelvio: 100,000 kilometres in two and a half years. He left from the Stelvio Pass (a height of 2,758 metres) and travelled through France, where he boarded a ship for South America; from Patagonia, he rode to Canada, and through to Alaska, then back to Vancouver where he missed the ship for Japan. So he travelled back to South America, to Bogota, then to Peru, and headed for Korea, returning home through Russia, to reach his final destination, the Stelvio Pass, from where the journey began.
“Stelvio2Stelvio” is the title of his adventure ( www.stelvio2stelvio.it).
In this interview for Liguria Nautica, Andrea Livio explains why he chose the Guzzi for his great adventure. “Because the factory where it’s made is close to where I live, where I was born. It’s like travelling with something from home, something personal. And the Guzzi is my favourite bike. I call my Stelvio Mastellona because it’s so hefty.”
A trusty companion, a friend that has taken him to difficult, wonderful, unforgettable places.

For true bikers, their motorcycle, whatever its age, is a cult object to be treasured, cared for and kept proudly for years; a faithful companion for travel and adventure. The new WIDE feature “My Bike Movie” is dedicated to everyone who rides off to work on a brand new bike in the morning, to everyone who fondly conserves a bike handed down in the family from generation to generation, to everyone who lovingly cherishes a vintage motorcycle.
