Exhibition at the SFO Museum – International Terminal. I’d be happy to miss a flight for this exhibit.
Excerpt from Moto Bellissima: Italian Motorcycles from the 1950s and 1960s:
The Italian propensity for artistic design, historically demonstrated in a wide range of manufactured goods, has perhaps never been better exemplified than in the beautiful motorcycles that graced Italy’s racetracks and roadways in the 1950s and 1960s. Over the course of two decades, an unprecedented number of Italian firms, many of them lost to history, produced a dizzying array of small-sized motorcycles for a country with a desperate need for mobility after World War II. These machines were created at a time of impoverished resources, but consistent with a characteristically Italian insistence on producing, and demanding, objects of extraordinary design and beauty.
Mega salute to Timothy O’Brien, Curator of Exhibitions SFO Museum, for supplying MegaDeluxe these photographs.
