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.
The Piaggio 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.
The 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.
