Maybe it is not so well known that one of the most famous italian motorcycle brand, despite its historic headquarter in Mandello del Lario on the Lake Como, has Ligurian origins.

We are talking about Moto Guzzi, a company founded in 1921 by a genoese man, Giorgio Parodi who, together with his partner Carlo Guzzi, they went in Corso Andrea Podestà a very famous street in the city of Genova and, in front of the solliciter dr. Cassanello on the 15 March 1921, they gave birth to the golden eagle brand.

 

To find out more about the local origins of this company, two important experts of history not only on two wheels, presented an interesting conference called "Moto Guzzi, a Genoese motorcycle". The event took place in Genoa and was promoted by "A Compagna", a well-known citizen organization always looking for our historical roots. The speakers, Elena Bagnasco, the nephew of Giorgio Parodi and Luca Pittaluga, a Moto Guzzi enthusiast, told the audience about the history of this very famous brand, keeping an eye to the future.

In 2021, Moto Guzzi will celebrate its centenary anniversary, and Elena Bagnasco is personally involved in organizing the main event, in memory of the founding grandfather, in the city of Genoa. Elena has just created an association that today is very famous among the Guzzi-people all over the world. Giorgio Parodi was, not only an entrepreneur but also a great aerial pilot, and he is still remembered not only riding a motorcycle but also inside an airplane.
