The Piaggio Museum was opened in March 2000 in the building that formerly housed the tooling workshop, one of the oldest and most fascinating structures in the Pontedera industrial complex, where the company launched production in the early 1920s. The Museum was founded in order to safeguard and enhance the historical and technological heritage of one of the oldest Italian companies, and its goal is to reconstruct the history of Piaggio and the country as a whole by taking a journey back in time through Italian history, retracing changes in the economy, in traditions and habits and in industrial development through the exhibition of its most famous and iconic products, supported by the wealth of documentation preserved in the Historical Archive.
The Piaggio Museum was renovated and expanded in 2018, and now spans 5,000 square metres, with more than 250 exhibits of considerable historical and technological interest; it is the largest and most comprehensive museum dedicated to two-wheeler vehicles in Italy. The permanent collections include unique specimens that not only tell the story of the Piaggio Group and its brands, but also enable visitors to the museum to step back in time, through the history of mobility and industrial and social development in Italy. Indeed, Piaggio’s historical memory is interwoven with the entire history of transport; over the years, the parent company and its brands have been behind the creation of ships, trains, aeroplanes, cars, scooters, motorcycles, marine engines and tractors. The Piaggio Museum is the only establishment in Italy that retraces the history of a sector characterised by hi-tech, innovative solutions, the evolution of which has marked the history of Europe.
