Stories of engines, design and passion
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.
