The Vespa Group visits Macchina a vapore Museo Franco Risi

The Vespa Club Ferrara organised a special visit to our museum "Macchina a Vapore Museo Franco Risi".

On a warm and sunny day, the tour aroused the interest and curiosity of all those who did not know or had never had the opportunity to admire the large locomotives and locomotives up close.

The skilful descriptions and explanations offered to visitors by our guides aroused various questions and an important involvement of all, and there were really many, visitors.

The visit, which was in fact a real gathering complete with a stand for refreshments, offered a spectacular parade of "Vespe" of infinite models and equipment.

The famous mopeds were equipped and personalized in a thousand different versions; the different colors and the large number of specimens offered the spectacle of a beautiful "snake" both on arrival and on the restart...

It was a pleasure to host the members of the Vespa Club Ferraraand we hope to see you soon...
