Vespa World Days in full swing in Pontedera

PARTICIPANTS CONTINUE TO ARRIVE, THOUSANDS OF VESPAS JOIN THE ONES ALREADY AT THE HUGE RALLY

ANTICIPATION GROWS FOR THE GREAT VESPA PARADE TOMORROW WHICH COULD BEAT ALL PREVIOUS PARTICIPATION RECORDS

Pontedera, 19 April 2024 – After yesterday’s opening ceremony, the Vespa World Days 2024 in Pontedera are fully underway but even today, on the second of the four days of the scheduled festival, an incredible number of Vespisti are still arriving in Vespa’s native city from all over Europe, joining the thousands of enthusiasts who had already arrived over the past few days. As we await the final numbers, the 2024 edition of the Vespa World Days already promises to be one of the biggest Vespa events ever.
For the first time, the annual rally for all the national Vespa Clubs from all over the world is being held precisely where Vespa was born and where it has been manufactured non-stop since 1946. A truly special edition, also because it celebrates 140 years of Piaggio, the company founded in 1884, where representatives have already arrived from Australian and South American clubs, as well as from the USA and China and, obviously, from every European nation.

The anticipation of the Vespisti and all the guests is steadily growing for the great Vespa Parade, the procession of all the Vespas participating in the rally scheduled for tomorrow where thousands of Vespas and Vespisti will be riding through the Valdera. Among the enthusiasts departing at 11:00 AM from Viale Italia in Pontedera, will also be TV host Rudy Zerbi.
There was a small taste of the parade today, with the various tours which took the Vespisti on a true Tuscany Experience to discover spectacular routes to such places as Pisa and Volterra, a long line of Vespas, led by the special GTS 300 delivered yesterday to the State Police, which will also be a protagonist in the Parade tomorrow. Besides the big parade, the highlight of the day tomorrow will be in the Vespa Village with the Concours d’Elegance, an opportunity participants will not want to miss to see some of the most beautiful and rarest Vespas accompanied by the elegance of riders and passengers.

In the Piaggio Museum Auditorium, meet & greets continue, meetings where enthusiasts can interact with technicians and designers who are key in the design and manufacture of Vespas, to learn all the secrets of the most famous and beloved two-wheeler in the world. Since yesterday, the Museum spaces have also been housing the offices of the Vespa Historic Register which, established in 1980, is the organisation which protects and spreads the technical memory of Vespa.

All of Pontedera is a protagonist, not only because of its fantastic hospitality to the vespisti, but also for having transformed its locations with festivals and events dedicated to Vespa, from photo and art exhibits to the cinematic review, where three of the hundreds of films which have depicted Vespa will be projected on a loop: the Disney-Pixar production Luca, the famous Roman Holiday, and the fiction Enrico Piaggio, an Italian Dream.
