Description

For many Italians and others, the Vespa is a travelling art form, a true icon of our contemporary culture to which it was only right to dedicate an entire museum. The Piaggio Museum in Pontedera, south of Pisa, is housed in a huge former warehouse and hosts the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of the famous two-wheelers, tracing their history and models since their creation in the 1920s, in parallel with the Italian industrial development. A visit to this place is not only for Vespa fans but also for those who want to rediscover a bit of our country’s social history.
