Price is 22.50 Euro per person. 

PRESS RELEASE - GENOA WILL HOST THREE DAYS IN MAY 2021 TO CELEBRATE THE CENTENARY OF THE FOUNDING OF MOTO GUZZI.

Three days of intense, varied and interesting initiatives, from 14 to 16 May 2021, will recall the co-founder of the historic "Moto dell'Aquila", Giorgio Parodi, in the year of the Centenary of his foundation, which took place in Genoa on 15 March 1921. The city where the company's registered office has been for many years.

To organize the important event are the founder's granddaughter, Elena Bagnasco, President of Giorgio Parodi Association and godmother of the event, in collaboration with the Aeroclub of Genoa, of which Parodi himself, along with others, was the founder.

The event, organized in collaboration with the Municipality of Genoa, will be added to the traditional September appointment of Mandello del Lario, where the historic factory is still located today, a “pilgrimage” destination for thousands of two-wheel enthusiasts.

The event, held between 14 and 16 May 2021 in the Porto Antico area, includes, among the numerous initiatives, an event sponsored by the Moto Guzzi World Club called Moto Guzzi World with the presence of Guzzisti enthusiasts coming not only from Italy; always with the Moto Guzzi World Club organization, an edition of the "100 year Raid" with the arrival in Genoa of motorcycle riders from different countries, all in the sign of the Eagle and a "special edition" of a Genoese Pesto competition, organized by Palatifini Cultural Association. Genoa Pesto World Championship has been, in fact, for years now the ambassador of the tradition of Genoese pesto and Genoese tradition in the world.

The event will also have a beneficial purpose. In fact, there will be a fundraiser for the Giannina Gaslini Institute in Genoa, to be allocated to the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Pavilion.

The initiative aims to promote the binomial Giorgio Parodi, a leading figure in the panorama of Italian aviation and of exemplary and industrious Ligurian spirit and Genoa to which Parodi has given prestige.

It is possible to join the initiative and support the project through the site:
www.giorgioparodi.it 

The Centennial Patch.

We have received our patches together with a card from Elena Bagnasco, granddaughter of Giorgio Parodi (co-founder of Moto Guzzi) and President of the Giorgio Parodi Association.

In order to bear the costs of organising GP Days (14-15-16 May 2021 in Genoa) the Giorgio Parodi Association has launched a fundraising campaign entitled " Patch del Centenario"

Limited edition of 300 pieces. For every 10€ donated (+ 3€ for packaging and shipping costs) you will receive a Patch. Size: 95mm x 65mm.

See: https://www.giorgioparodi.it/index.php/it/merchandising/la-patch-del-centenario

Update 26th December 2020:

Due to the large number of requests, we have increased the quantity to 300 units. The choice was determined by the desire to satisfy as many people as possible without generating hoarding and profit phenomena.

 

Bobbio to Genoa Tour.

The itinerary for our trip to Genoa will include riding the Bobbio to Genoa salt road. 

The word Salt Road makes you think of the more famous route connecting Ventimiglia and Limone Piemonte, but in the past each sea region had several networks of roads or paths so that a product which was fundamental for preserving food could be exchanged for weapons and other goods from more inland regions. From Ventimiglia to Trieste, along all of Italy's coastline, there are numerous, often forgotten, salt roads.

On TELEGENOVA, in Teniamoci Compagnia, Sara Tagliente interviews Elena Bagnasco. The date of GP Days is approaching but who was Giorgio Parodi? and what did he represent for "his" city? A local TV station wanted to know more.
