The Vespa (which means "wasp" in Italian) was the result of Enrico Piaggio's determination to create a low cost motor cycle for the masses. Piaggio was founded in Genoa in 1884 by twenty-year-old Rinaldo Piaggio and on April 23, 1946 the Piaggio Company filed a patent in Florence for the first Vespa. The rest is history. Today, Vespa is the expression of a uniquely distinctive lifestyle. Its enduring success owes much to its extraordinary origins and to its symbolic and iconographic identity. Through a combination of cultural sensitivity and constant innovation, the brand continues to surprise and delight fans all over the globe. Recently, the Vespa brand has launched a line of accessories, apparel, helmets and bags with a stylish and unmistakably Vespa retro look; which the company believes will live up to the reputation of the legendary Vespa name.
