Custom painted Vespa – Piaggio Museum, Pontedera (Pisa)

YEAR: 2012

This Vespa PX was decorated by Talani for his exhibition “Bottega Talani: un viaggio nell’affresco” (Atelier Talani: a journey into fresco painting), hosted by the Piaggio Museum from June 1 to July 28, 2012. The frame of the Vespa – a mode of transport that has achieved a “legendary” status – was painted with some of Talani’s favourite painted motifs – “a swarm of flying suitcases, roses and umbrellas; glimpses of sea with unlikely red buoys and whales gliding slowly along the horizon” – all related to the major theme in Talani’s works: travel.
