Updated edition of the book ‘60 years of Vespa’, published in 2006 to celebrate Vespa’s 60th anniversary. April 1946 was the debut date of the revolutionary little two-wheel vehicle, which, as well as leaving an indelible mark on the history of transport, became a real cultural phenomenon to successive generations. Simple and elegant, practical and comfortable, these are some of the characteristics that have ensured the popular scooter an unrepeatable success, with 35,000 of them built in 1949 alone. Sixty-five years after its birth, the Vespa, of which over 17 million have been produced, has affirmed itself throughout the world. This book covers the fascinating epic of the Vespa, from its debut to the present day, through hundreds of pictures and invaluable documents of its various epochs. The work is introduced by Roberto Colaninno, the current president of Piaggio, and includes a systematic cataloguing of all the models that have appeared in those 65 years, each one accompanied by a detailed technical specification.

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.

DUCATI LA ROSSA DELLE DUE RUOTE - Edizione 2012

Ducati was founded in 1926 to produce electronic components and did not become a motorcycle manufacturer until after the Second World War, when it was placed under state control almost by chance. But today, it is a marque known throughout the world and lives as much in the marketplace as it does in the hearts of enthusiasts as the icon of the ‘made in Italy’ motorcycle.
The story of the company – famous for its refined desmodronic valve gear – is peppered with legendary models, extraordinary sporting successes and great champions, but also by financial crises and different owners. But nothing has been able to dim the fascination, vocation for excellence and the racing success of the Borgo Panigale company.
This is a book that tells both the sporting and industrial story of the company, a volume that gives an overall view – bulging with information and pictures – of the Ducati branded products. A rich and conclusive catalogue through which parade the entire production of the company, model-by-model.
