The Ducati Museum has opened its (virtual) doors: Here's how to visit it

Moto - News: The Ducati Museum has opened its (virtual) doors: Here's how to visit it

Ducati has a wonderful history, and it has all been collected in the museum located in Borgo Panigale. As you enter its halls, you literally breathe in an air of passion, technology, and true motorcycling history. It's not just the story of a factory, but the birth of what, over the years, has become a brand that is a cult object for many fans. You go from the history of the Desmo, to the first trellis frames, then the Pantah, the 888, the first 916, and the entire firmament of the most beautiful Ducatis ever manufactured.

Speaking of Ducati, there's obviously a huge space reserved for Racing, from Mike Hailwood's bikes to the TT, to the world championship 916 with Carl Fogarty in the SBK, not to mention the 851, the first 999, and then Carlos Checa's 1098, the last Ducati to conquer a title in the SBK so far. But you won't only find motorcycles, you'll also find lots of memorabilia, such as the most prestigious and significant trophies and the first designs of many models. It's truly a compendium that every fan can admire.

During this global lockdown, the museum is obviously closed to the public, but there's a way you can still visit it, maybe even less hastily and with the pleasure of being able to return several times to admire that same bike which made us dream as kids. Just log into Google Street through THIS LINK and be transported into the Ducati Museum, where you can see all the bikes up close. It might not be the same as actually being there, but you could consider this virtual visit as the perfect aperitif until you'll be able to visit it in Borgo Panigale in person, where the history of all the Rosse is jealously guarded.
