Finally, credit where credit is due in the scooter design world.

NYT Article

Museo Piaggio has opened a new and sadly, temporary exhibit about the revolutionary designer of the Vespa. It’s only going to be showing until the end of this month, so if you just-so-happen to be in the Pisa/ Florence area of Italy, you should go there. I would, but I’ve got stuff to do…

Anyway, the point of the post aside from giving credit to the writers that told us in America about the exhibit, but also the curators of the Museo for finally looking to their roots and giving real credit to one of the innovators of, in my humble opinion, one of the most interesting and beautiful machines to grace the road.

I also think it’s really cool that the Italian postal system is issuing a stamp in commemoration. But I can’t manage to find out what it looks like… Oh well. It’s still really cool. 🙂
