The Piaggio Museum was inaugurated in March 2000 and occupies the 3,000 square meters of the company’s former tool-shop of the industrial complex in Pontedera, where Piaggio started its production in the early nineteen twenties. The Museum was created to preserve and highlight the value of a historic legacy.
A special part of the Museum, finally, is dedicated to the Gilera Collection, historic motorcycle manufacturers of Arcore, bought by Piaggio in 1969. The collection includes some very precious exhibits, from the 1937 “faired” Rondine (which had a huge success on the tracks with record breaking feats), the 500cc Saturno Sport (designed in 1940 by Giuseppe Salmaggi), the 500cc Saturno Sanremo, the 125cc and 175cc Two cylinder and the 500cc Four cylinder, just to mention a few.
