    Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile Di Torino

    And that, my friends, concludes our Italian Automotive Cultural Roadtrip and EICMA 2017. If fuel runs through your veins, then a stop at the Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile Di Torino, covering the evolution of Car and its components is a must see. And Turin ain’t too bad either… Hope you enjoyed the journey as much as I did!

    Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile – Gallery

    Last day in Italy, quick stop at the National Museum of The Automobile in Turin, covering the evolution of the Automobile. Established in 1932 and refurbed in 2011, by far the best Museum yet, with endless interactive displays and staged period themes to great effect. Well worth the visit.

    MV Agusta Factory Tour

    The GPS warned me that the Moto Guzzi Museum only opens at 15:00, so I rerouted to MV Agusta assuming the Museum would be at the same location. Well its not. And its closed until Saturday. A blessing in disguise!!! Upon arrival at MV, I presented myself to security and whispered the password “factory tour”, not expecting much as I had not made a booking. “Uno momento” (with finger in the air) came the response as security made a quick call… and ten minutes later i had my own personal factory tour guide. Unfortunately photos are “not permitted” in the pre-production, parts bin (“supermarket”) & single line production assembly plant, but are allowed…
