BENELLI 1911-2011: UNA FABBRICA UNA CITTA’ UNA FAMIGLIA

Book about the centenary of the Benelli Firm.
When I met Dr Massimiliano Di Pasquale, the idea of publishing his thesis, with changes where needed, came to me. It was on Economic History, disserted at Bocconi University - Milan - in the year 1999: “A Factory, a Town, a Family “The Benellis”. The thesis, dealing with the socio - economic events of the motorcycle firm, analyses all the aspects – from the opening – up in 1911 to the international evolution, until it became an excellent trade-mark. In the book there are the changes of ownership which started in 1971 and went on with well – known managers: in succession, Alejandro De Tommaso, Giancarlo Selci, Andrea Merloni, the Chinese Group Q. J. the present owner. The book is enriched with photos of various motorcycle models and documents never published so far and they help understand the development of the Pesarese firm – in addition, there are testimonials of technicians and workers who worked in the firm for decades. More material is provided: personal photographic archives of members of the Benellis never published before, pictures from private albums of people who worked in the firm, the archives of “The National Museum of the Motorbike” in Rimini and “The Museum of the Motorbike” of Giancarlo Morbidelli, a very well – known collector of the Pesarese trade-mark. It’s a very serious historical research in 4 chapters – along with a cronological photographic review covering the one-hundred years of the Pesarese firm. A family saga which went through moments of glory but in time came to an inexorable decline.

LAZZARINI: STORIE DI UOMINI, PENSIERI, VITTORIE, EMOZIONI

Enzo Lazzarini tells of the early years of the adventure that took his brother Eugenio to a glittering racing career, winning three world titles, eight second places and four Italian championships. A major undertaking that began after Enzo’s career was suddenly halted by a dramatic accident that completely changed his life. An iron will, a tremendous desire to live and an ability to work beyond the imaginable. Qualities that enabled Enzo and Eugenio to open a concessionaire by day that was transformed into a workshop by night, from which emerged the prodigious Lazzarini/Piovaticci 125 single cylinders at first and the surprising Piovaticci twin-cylinder 250 soon afterwards. Financial problems and technical difficulties were faced with a healthy “craziness”, step-by-step, without stopping for a second until they achieved a splendid victory in the 125 cc class of the 1973 Grand Prix of Holland. In the midst of pain, worries, preoccupations, doubts, disappointments and torment there was also joy, the successes and conquests of a man who, today, has become a successful businessman. Demonstrating that with the right will and strength of character nothing is impossible.
