The origins of Gilera in the motorcycle world go back to 1909, 100 years ago, when Giuseppe Gilera established this brand destined to leave a profound mark on motorcycling history, and not only that of Italy. The remarkable entrepreneurial ability of Gilera enabled the Arcore company to achieve great notoriety, both in the area of production bikes and in racing even before the Second World War, with two victories in the international 6 Days of regularity as well as success in the European Championship for speed. The sports commitment of the company remained a constant in subsequent decades until the Nineties. After a century, Gilera is now writing yet another chapter in its fascinating history in the field of scooters. The industrial and sports history, but above all a systematic catalogue of all the models constructed by Gilera since 1909 to the present day, constitute the fundamental parts of this work, destined to become an authentic point of reference for all motorcycle enthusiasts, those of Gilera in particular.

Established in Milan in 1922, Sertum was one of the most dynamic and important Italian motorcycle manufacturers of its day. Fausto Alberti decided to add the even more demanding design and construction of motorbikes to his existing production of precision mechanics, which had been his business for some time. The notoriety of Sertums grew rapidly in the early Thirties, due to the Batua, 175 Utilitaria and 250 models, as well as the production three-wheel goods and other vehicles. Sertum soon achieved success in sport, too, especially in regularity events. Two years before the company closed in 1952, it developed an innovative 125 cc light motorcycle, but the machine went into production. The prestigious author Mario Colombo put his beloved Guzzi to one side in order to write his passionate, short but intense story of Sertum bikes, based on his careful reconstruction of the facts and systematic cataloguing of the various models, supported by rare illustrations of the period. The book also offers useful advice on the restoration of the machines.

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.
