ProItalia Ducati cocktail party in Glendale (CA) with Miguel Galluzzi
Between a Nastro Azzurro and a mouthful of cheesecake, Miguel Galluzzi takes us on a journey through the stages of Italian motorcycle design. Thanks to Glendale’s Pro Italia , we had the pleasure to enjoy an exclusive event dedicated to the history of motorcycle design in the bel paese of Italy.
The shop was full of italian motorcycle lovers, and among them there were two special guests: Giuseppe Perrone (Italian Consul General in Los Angeles) and Carlo Bocchi (Italian Trade Commissioner).
Our journey started with an description of how motorcycle design has changed over the years.
In the beginning the focus was on the affordability and the functional aspect of owning a bike.
In this context it was Moto Rumi which in 1949 created a turning point that focused more attention of design details, but still kept the pleasure of motorcycle riding as a priority.
This gem, designed by Miguel Galluzzi, marks the boundary between the past and the future of design made in italy, turning it into an signature recognized and respected around the world which expresses Italian know-how.
