- Largest two-wheeled museum in Italy
Impressions from the Piaggio Museum on site are currently difficult to come by.
That is why Piaggio has mapped the almost 5,000 square meter exhibition area.
This is how the virtual museum visit begins.
At the bottom left you can choose which perspective you want to be displayed.
The top view or the 3D plan give an overview.
You can search for exhibits or stroll through the rooms, like with Google Street View.
If you click on the points on the exhibits, a window opens with information.

Museum tour based on the Street View model
The Piaggio Museum in Pontedera is allowed to reopen from Tuesday, February 16, 2021. But there is also the option of a virtual tour.
On-site tours of the Piaggio Museum in Pontedera are only available under strict hygiene requirements for registered groups of up to ten people. Since at least of us are currently going abroad, it is particularly gratifying that Piaggio offers the opportunity to explore the museum and its exhibits digitally.
Site plans, exhibit information and videos
The almost 5,000 square meter exhibition area was mapped for this purpose. You can quickly find out the principle, especially if you have previously walked virtually streets with Google Street View. On the museopiaggio.it homepage, click on Virtual Tour on the right “Start tour” click. Then a page opens with a play symbol. After a click, the 3D map is shown briefly and then zoomed in. Within a few seconds you are standing between colorful Vespas.
At the bottom left in the 3D viewer, you can use the symbols to change the perspective and, among other things, display the site plans for the individual levels.

Keywords and model names are listed alphabetically on the left edge of the 3D viewer. Some are marked with a video camera symbol. Behind it are embedded YouTube videos, some of which even show old commercials in which a Piaggio two-wheeler plays a role. Many videos are simply accompanied by music, international Piaggio films are in English.
Largest two-wheeled museum in Italy
Anyone who is not looking for a specific exhibit can simply start on one level and wander through the exhibition rooms with a click of the mouse. The exhibits are marked with a white circle symbol, which, if desired, shows the information about the respective vehicle – in English or Italian.
That Piaggio Museum was opened in March 2000 – in the former production halls of Piaggio. In 2018 it was renovated and enlarged so that it is now the largest two-wheel museum in Italy and one of the largest in Europe. It houses an extensive Ape collection as well as the racing history of Aprilia, Moto Guzzi and Gilera. The following permanent exhibitions can be found there: Vespa Collection, Vespa Racing, Piaggio Collection, Gilera Collection, Moto Guzzi Collection, Aprilia Collection and Artistic Collection.
Anyone who ignored all digital alternatives at the beginning of the pandemic – in the hope that everything will soon be back to normal – may now be grateful for such a virtual offer. In any case, a virtual museum visit on the screen can provide a change from films, series and computer games.
