Moto Guzzi, the Lake Como based motorcycle factory is Italy’s pride an joy. The factory has a small but steady production making Moto Guzzi motorcycles an exclusive item for collectors around the world. Established in 1921, Moto Guzzi was started by three army buddies, Carlo Guzzi, Giovanni Ravelli and Giorgio Parodi. Dreaming about what they would do together after the war, Moto Guzzi became a reality. Unfortunately, Ravelli died just days after the war’s end in an aircraft crash and is commemorated by the eagle’s wings on the Moto Guzzi logo. Even if you don’t have a motorcycle, the Moto Guzzi name has become synonymous with “Italy”, “courage” and “determination”.
