77 years ago Piaggio presented its first Vespa, exactly on 29 March 1946. The small scooter from the Pontedera company is loved worldwide, appearing in numerous films such as Roman Holiday, with Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn.
Enrico Piaggio, Corradino D’Ascanio, and Mario D’Este developed a unique model both aesthetically and mechanically: a scooter with the performance of a motorcycle, the agility of a bicycle, and the elegance of a car. Its name, so perfect and symphonic, was attributed to it by Enrico Piaggio himself due to the sound characteristics of its engine and the lines of its chassis.
Participants in the next International Meeting will have the opportunity on Sunday, 8 October, to visit the famous museum reserved exclusively for the occasion.
