The building in
which the Piaggio Museum is
located today is a former tooling shop, one of
the oldest facilities of the Piaggio factory in
Pontedera. In 2000, it was converted into a
centre for arts and culture to house the Museum.
The Museum’s permanent collection of
historic vehicles attracts growing numbers of
devotees and tourists from all over the world,
while the Historic Archive, one of the most
important corporate archives in Italy, contains
full records on the company’s history and as
such is an excellent tool for conserving local
and national memory.
Foundation wants to strengthen the ties between
business, culture and the community by
organising temporary exhibitions, conferences
and popular cultural events, in cooperation with
local authorities and associations.
Piaggio Museum is a place to visit, to
experience and to interpret. It offers a
fascinating journey through the history of a
great Italian company and through Italian mores
since the Second World War, a journey that will
leave the visitor with food for thought.
