Channel: Online Auction

Category: Transportation and Vehicles

This wonderful book is a very high quality reprint of the 1951 original that was published by the Moto Guzzi factory to celebrate its 30TH year of existence. It was published in 1951 in memory of Emanuele Vittorio Parodi. the financial backer of the Moto Guzzi factory and father of one of the founders: Giorgio Parodi .

The booklet is as wonderful as the original. It has an incredible amount of very historic photographs, newspaper clippings, the original founding letter of the factory, watercolor painting reproductions of the early insides of the factory, the 1951 Guzzi model line with images of the Falcone, Airone, Astore, SuperAlce, Motoleggera 65 (the Guzzino ), the Galletto and the famous Ercole three-wheeled motorcycle truck.

Not only that, the earliest models of the very beginning receive in this great book a review as well with wonderful photos! The Normale, the first Norge or GT. Sport 14. Sport 15. the P 175. GT17 are all featured.

Also featured is the âeoe R âe. This machine is very unknown, you wonâe(tm)t find any mention in any other book that describes the history of Moto Guzzi !

Not only that, it also gives a wonderful image of the extraâe(tm)s that Guzzi provided for their workers. Images of the famous Olympic gold medal winning Moto Guzzi rowing club, the Moto Guzzi soccer club, the bicycle racing club and so on. Also it shows the houses that Guzzi build for their workers, and the power plants build by Guzzi to supply the factory with electricity. Off course the impressive motorcycle victories and world records are not forgotten either.

The booklet shows a list of all 64 world records the factory held in 1951, and it also shows many photos of the Guzzi racing bikes in action, including a great portrait of Carlo Guzzi and Guido Mentasti, the winner of the first ever European Championship on the Guzzi 500 ohc racing machine in 1924! The booklet shows many other photos with Carlo Guzzi. as well as Giorgio Parodi. the co founder. Also impressive are the images that show the inside of the Moto Guzzi factory.

They form a compelling image of how the bikes were made back then.

Moto Guzzi did a lot for their workers. They had their own dentist and doctor. Their offices were located in the factory, the book also has photos of that!

Also the Moto Guzzi delicacy store, the wine canteen and so on. The book gives great insight how Guzzi operated and how they treated their employees. Also photos of the windtunnel, the trophy-room absolutely filled with trophies from all over the world. Interesting also are the images of the early factory and how it grew since 1921. In the middle is a great fold out page of a painting of how the factory looked in 1951.

But t are more fold outs in the book.

Italian description:

Ristampa aziendale dâe(tm)uno bellissimo libercolo edito dalla stessa Moto Guzzi nel lontano 1951, in occasione del trentesimo anniversario dalla fondazione e dedicato alla memoria di Vittorio Emanuele Parodi. E’ un libro illustrato con belle fotografie e disegni dell’epoca e riporta una raccolta di commenti sui trent’anni di attività dell’azienda, e il bello è che non sono enunciati solo i tanti successi sportivi e i modelli più significativi della produzione, ma è documento importante per valutare il grande impatto e significatività dell’azienda nel tessuto sociale dell’epoca. Attraverso il piacevolissimo sfogliare delle pagine si apprezza la grandiosità della azienda negli anni ’50, forse gli anni del massimo splendore, quando ai successi sportivi e commerciali si affiancavano i molteplici servizi ai dipendenti, come la colonia estiva per i figli dei dipendenti, il dentista a disposizione, e così via, senza tralasciare altri aspetti tecnici come le due centrali idroelettriche fatte appositamente cost.
