IL GRANDE LIBRO DELLE MOTO ITALIANE ANNI 70

The Seventies were years of great change. Motorcycles went from being a utilitarian transport for a few enthusiasts to objects of tremendous fascination, which were even able to win over people who were not really motorcyclists. During those years, motorbikes, especially those of substantial cubic capacity, were so mesmerising as to even become a phenomenon of fashion. The Japanese were the first to open up this new market followed by the glorious British manufacturers; Italy responded with new, fascinating models, which were able to leave their mark on the international scene. The author examines the historical and cultural context in which these bikes first appeared focusing on the most significant Italian marques of the Seventies such as Moto Guzzi, Benelli, MV Agusta, Ducati and many others.

IL GRANDE LIBRO DELLE MOTO ITALIANE ANNI 50 E 60

The 50s and 60s comprised an extremely significant epoch in the history of the motorcycle in which the foundations of what became known as the “economic miracle” were laid. When the car was still inaccessibly expensive and out of reach of most Italians, it was these two-wheeled machines that were the individual means of transport par excellence. But the scenario that evolved in subsequent decades was a different one, starting with the debut of the first small, much less expensive “utility” cars. It was then that the motorcycle began to lose popularity and remained the dream of just a few enthusiasts. The book returns to those two fascinating decades and brings them alive once more with its thousands of pictures, blended with a text brimming with interest.
