Casa Lambretta is a tribute to the dedication of one man, Vittorio Tessera, and his love of all things scooter – particularly the products of the Innocenti company.
Vittorio fell in love with Lambrettas at 15, opened the first scooter restoration business in Italy four years later, and started a classic scooter club two years later still.
His collection is housed in Rodano outside Milan.
Apart from an example of almost every Lambretta model made, the collection includes scooters from every imaginable nation. Even the great rival, Vespa, has its own display.
In addition to over 160 scooters, Vittorio has gathered a mountain of Innocenti documentation including films, negatives, engineering drawings and brochures, mostly sourced from the Innocenti family itself.
