History of an authentic icon!

Why is Vespa so revolutionary and innovative? You can surely find the answer is her "first steps". 1946 - the year of her birth - contains all the elements that make this formidable scooter an icon of style and innovation even today. Quite simply, over the years Vespa has added to its lucky DNA the extraordinary ability to interpret the “territory in which you have traveled” in a unique way, often ahead of its time.

Vespa is an original, useful and beautiful invention that conquers immediately, especially in a moment - the second post-war period - when the desire for redemption is loudly felt. And it is no coincidence that its creator was Corradino d’Ascanio, a brilliant designer with an eclectic mentality who blends creativity and mechanical engineering in a functional, aerodynamic and simple vehicle.

But the innovation from the vehicle also extends naturally to the language that still today makes the Vespa an icon with a thousand kaleidoscopic facets that extend with spontaneity and irreverence into the lifestyle world and make us travel on trails of color and sympathy. A revolution in the language of the scooter itself and its communication.

   

Observing the sinuous shapes of the first scooter prototype (MP6) and listening to the hum of its 98cc engine, Enrico Piaggio cannot help but exclaim: “It looks like a wasp!”. And from that word a real communication revolution is triggered that goes around the world and gives life to iconic advertising campaigns.

Vespa, in fact, conquers everyone with its unique and inimitable appeal that revolutionizes the way people move on the roads around the globe and inaugurates an unprecedented way of expressing themselves.

Since the 1950s, the slogan “Vespizzatevi!” (Get your self a Vespa)  creates a verb starting from a proper noun, inviting action and making the Vespa a fantastic antidote to traffic. An avant-garde concept already for the time and which is revived today thanks to a "contemporary remake" capable of revitalizing the origins of the Vespa myth. By launching a new appeal to "vespizzarsi", this two-wheeler proves once again that it is not just a means of transport, but a real state of mind that, with freedom and spontaneity, is capable of moving a unique energy that makes exclaim in a loud voice Live more Vespa!
