The Piaggio Museum was inaugurated in March 2000 and occupies the 3,000 square meters of the company’s former tool-shop in one of the oldest and most characteristic bodies of the industrial complex in Pontedera, where Piaggio started its production in the early nineteen twenties. The Museum was created to preserve and highlight the value of a historic legacy. The objective is to tell the history of Piaggio and through it the development of Italian industry, economy and society by exhibiting some of the company’s best known, most representative products and through the documents and images of its extensive archive.
Fundamental examples of the company’s production prior to the launch of the Vespa in 1946, welcome the visitor at the entrance of the Piaggio Museum: a MC2 54 train engine,a P148 airplane, a two-seater acrobatic training plane produced in 1951. Inside the museum,two stellar plane engines built in the Pontedera and Pisa plants in the Thirties, dominate the central hall.
