Piero Prampolini: 95 years and a glorious past as a draftsman and designer that a memory still prodigiously intact allows him to reconstruct down to the smallest detail. Benelli, MotoBi, Mondial and Parilla were the motorcycle brands to which he dedicated 45 years of work, making use of technical talent and design creativity.

Who, among motorcycling enthusiasts, does not remember the Tornado 650, the Benelli / Saarinen 500 GP, the Catria MotoBi 175, the Mondial 175 TV? All works of undisputed ingenuity, from single to multi-cylinder fractionated, characterized by daring innovations conceived with that limpid rationality that has always been unanimously recognized. For this reason, they called him "engineer", even though it was not an engineer because he had not been able to afford to study.

The "engineer" Prampolini. Thus, as they already defined it at the time, Nunzia Manicardi today wanted to entitle this book, revised by Prampolini himself and enriched by numerous unpublished technical drawings of great interest. An important book also to understand who we were and what we were able to do and which also includes Prampolini's work experiences as a draftsman at the Avio Department of the Officine Meccaniche Reggiane.

RUMI: LA MOTO DELL’ARTISTA

In the Fifties, many motorcycle manufacturers like Piaggio, MV Agusta and Morini joined famous brands in the marketplace such as Motor Guzzi and Gilera. Rumi earned itself a prominent position among the newcomers. From the moment its earliest bikes first appeared, the Italian factory distinguished itself for the refinement and quality of its machines. Rumi climbed to the absolute summit in the 125 category, with its Gobbetto, Scoiattolo and junior 125 touring and sports models as well as in racing, especially in regularity events. Riccardo Crippa, who promotes the Rumi Historic Register, recounts the long and detailed story of the manufacturer with the help of over 300 pictures in colour and black and white, technical drawings and a complete list of all the models, each fully described by an exhaustive technical specification.
