This year Mandello celebrates Moto Guzzi’s 100th of and Gilardoni’s 75th anniversary, two important companies of Mandello’s industrial history. Over time they have positively marked the economic and social development of an entire community.

Together to celebrate their respective birthdays. 

On the occasion of the motorcycle rally to be held this weekend, Gilardoni wanted to pay homage and celebrate the Guzzi factory by making a full X-ray inside our laboratories of a vintage motorcycle: the 1957 Falcone 500.

These elements unite the two factories born from the strong passion that Arturo had for X-rays and Carlo for motorcycles. In 2022 they shake hands to celebrate their respective birthdays together.

To make this radiography, more than 100 X-rays images were acquired, processed in post-production and assembled in order for us to be able to admire what we see today: an X-ray reconstruction of a Falcone 500.”
