My Love My Vespa


This was the historic advertising slogan that launched the 50 cc model with which the baby boomers took over the roads. The winds of liberty must have been blowing very strong if the voice-over closed with the advice: “Ride carefully and courteously”.


Vespa motorcycle reminds me the freedom to roam around wherever I wish. Recalls the Italian countryside and their historical cities. It is a way to travel that inspire freedom and simplicity.

“Here and there and not just in books we catch glimpses of a world of once upon a time and they lived happily ever after, of a world where there is a wizard to give courage and a heart, an angel with a white stone that has written on it our true and secret name, and it is so easy to dismiss it all that it is hardly worth bothering to do. … But if the world of the fairy tale and our glimpses of it here and there are only a dream, they are one of the most haunting and powerful dreams that the world has ever dreamed…”

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
