    Celebrations should take place, hopefully, at first in mid may, exactly were I live, one of the founders, Parodi, was genoese, actually. In september the main celebration will be held in Mandello, rumors of a new model, maybe a roadster...

    Here's a photograph of me with my 1950 Moto Guzzi Falcone, 500 single. Outside flywheel, hairpin valve springs, swinging arm rear suspension with friction dampening. Yes, that's my Porsche '56 356A coupe in the background. The cars on the street sort of give away the era.

    But certainly not at idle. When I was in high school one of my classmate's father had a hobby overhauling Stanly Steamer touring cars. Those things sounded more like air escaping a balloon than a machine gun. However, the fog that they left behind them did smell like machine oil.

    I know many of you guys wanted to come to Italy for Guzzi 100th anniversary , so sadly I have to inform all of you that many of the already planned events will be postponed to next year due to C19.

    What isn't being postponed or canceled due to the governments' covid-19 safety rules?

    Despite vaccination, In Italy we're still at 450÷500 deaths/day, so I think that postponing is a good idea
