The Moto Guzzi Museum is located in Mandello del Lario on the Lecco branch of Lake Como, in the heart of the historic factory that gave birth to the legendary Eagle (the company's iconic symbol), in 1921.

A treasure trove of historic, technical and cultural heritage, the Moto Guzzi Museum contains a rich collection of over 150 pieces on display including commercial motorcycles, sport bikes, experimental prototypes and engines, which alternate in chronological order to illustrate the glorious history of a timeless Italian and international legend .

The museum has a display of unique pieces such as the first motorcycle built by Carlo Guzzi in 1919 , the only model marked GP ( Guzzi - Parodi ) , along with specimens of the most celebrated in the world such as the extraordinary Eight Cylinder 500 model from 1957 , the brainchild of Giulio Cesare Carcano.

The exhibition area reserved for mass produced motorcycles displays a collection of over 80 vehicles that, along with the story of the production history of the Eagle of Mandello, offer a glimpse of Italy's social and economic life. One such example is the legendary Norge model from 1928 , the first touring bike in the history of the motorcycle, designed by Carlo Guzzi and his brother Giuseppe, the Guzzi Sport and GT series from the thirties, the Airone, the middleweight motorcycle most widely sold in Italy from 1939 to 1957 , or the Falcone, the dream of all motorcyclists in the fifties.

Moto Guzzi has gone down in the history books for its vehicles that kept Italians on the move after the war (like the Motoleggera 65 "Guzzino" model and the Galletto) or "re-invented" the concept of sport bikes at the end of the sixties with the V7 Sport with the 90° V-twin engine.

In addition to mass produced motorbikes, the exhibition also dedicates space to motorcycle racing, with the models that made the Mandello del Lario manufacturing facility so legendary.

Among these, the 4V Guzzi from 1924, the motorbike that earned Guido Mentasti the European championship title in Monza; the 2-cylinder 500 model, from 1946, known as the Omobono Tenni; the Guzzi 350 " Campione del Mondo" in 1955 ; and, in more recent years , the V7 record , the motorcycle based on the standard  V7 model , which clinched 19 speed records in June and October 1969 at the Monza circuit .

The museum exhibition also includes a section entitled "The Sound of Passion", featuring screenings of the most interesting films from the history of Moto Guzzi.
