BENEFITING: MUSEUM OF DESIGN ATLANTA INC
In the Spring of 2011, the Museum of Design Atlanta will inaugurate its new space at 1315 Peachtree with the opening of a thrilling exhibition titled Passione Italiana: Design of the Italian Motorcycle.
Featuring a collection of unique Italian racing motorcycles from the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Birmingham, AL, the exhibit will examine the evolution of Italian design and the racing heritage of manufacturers such as Ducati, M.V.A. and MV Agusta. Motorcycles from the 1950s—when the joint efforts of Italian designers, enlightened industrial manufactures and inventive engineers gave rise to the Italian design icon—to the present day will be on display.
The exhibit will include the following:
• 1964 MV Agusta 500cc Grand Prix
• 1976 M.B.A. 125 G.P.
• 1959 Ducati Superasport
• 1997 Bimota V-Due
• 1998 MV Agusta F4 Serio Oro
• 2002 Ducati MH 900 Evoluzione
• 2004 MV Agusta Brutale Oro
• 2007 Ducati 1098 S Tricolore
Sponsorships for this exhibition at any level are welcome. Sponsors who donate $1000.00 or more will receive public recognition during the exhibit.
The Passione Italiana exhibit is scheduled to open on March 19, 2011 and to run through June 3, 2011.
