TWO WHEELS IN THE WIND
On 30 September 2016
On Friday 30 September, at 9.00 p.m. Piaggio Museum Auditorium. On the occasion of the 29th Meeting of the Vespa historical Register, the Piaggio Foundation organizes the event named Two wheels in the wind. Giorgio Bettinelli. A story, an interview, and some songs, which is patronized by the Bettinelli Foundation.
The show is a brief story –spaced at intervals by music – of Giorgio Bettinelli, a Vespa-rider by chance who stepped on the gas in 1992 from Piazza del Popolo in Rome, and travelled non-stop astride his Vespa throughout Europe, the Middle East, India, Indochina, Australia, the Americas, Russia, and Africa, more than once around the world. The show picks some moments of this incredible geographic, and - above all –human exploration.
The show is performed by journalist Giovanni Bogani with actor Nicola Pecci. They alternate pages written by Bogani with others based on the books written by Giorgio Bettinelli. In the background, over 150 photos of his travels are projected together with parts of the last interview, given to Giovanni Bogani. Live music of some songs closely linked to his travels will also be played.
Free entry. Booking is necessary, please write to email@example.com or call number +39 (0)587 271727
