Moto Guzzi's 98th Birthday
On 15 March 1921 the SocietÓ Anonima Moto Guzzi
company was established for the manufacture and sale of motorcycles and
all other related activity in the metalworking industry. The founders
were Emanuele Vittorio Parodi, a well-known Genoese ship owner, his son
Giorgio and his friend Carlo Guzzi.
Parodi and Guzzi had served
in the Italian Air Force together with Giovanni Ravelli, a pilot killed
on 11 August 1919 during a test flight. They remembered their friend by
choosing a winged eagle as the symbol for their new company – now
recognised worldwide as the Moto Guzzi emblem.
