Pontedera (Pisa province in Tuscany, Italy), 26 May 2021 - An exhibit at the Piaggio Museum of the most valuable and representative motorcycles from Moto Guzzi celebrates the Mandello del Lario manufacturer’s one hundred years, founded in 1921.
It is an exhibit of extraordinary historic value which, until 17 June 2021, brings the most valuable and iconic Moto Guzzi models to Pontedera. The bikes are part of an itinerant event that Club ACI Storico is taking to a few fascinating locations on the peninsula to celebrate a century of life for one of the most important brands in motorcycling and Italy’s automotive industry.
The event, which made its début in Milan on 15 April, features motorcycles that marked their respective eras, masterpieces of engineering and mechanics, extraordinary machines that were often ahead of their times and always represented examples of style and technology. Bikes whose history intertwines with Italy’s industrial and social growth.
