Ducati History DVD

Ducati is known around the world as one of the most famous Italian motorcycle brands, but few know the real story.

Told for the first time in motorcycling history, this adventure story DVD reveals Ducati history with pictures, videos and testimonials from 1926 to the 2007 MotoGP World Championship.

From the innovative Ducati brothers and the birth of the "Cucciolo" to the unforgettable engineer Taglioni and the Desmodromic system.

From victory in the Imola 200 to the Scrambler and from Superbike dominance to debut in MotoGP, witnesses recount their personal experiences and accompany the viewer on a journey that is not only the story of a company, but a window through social history and the subsequent passion that created desmo engines destined to write the history of motorcycling.

From the collaboration of Ducati and the production company, Strike of Milan, director Angelo Barberi has achieved the most complete and compelling account of Ducati’s incredible heritage, and with so much exclusive material released for the very first time, the captivating ninety-minute movie reveals a fast-moving and exciting story.

The film and photographic material, perfectly complemented by interviews with former employees, riders and people who have indirectly experienced this adventure, is divided into twelve chapters.

It is the result of ten years of research in Ducati and Italian state archives and historical records.

"This is a new way to tell the story," Livio Lodi, curator of the Ducati Museum, proudly explains.

"As if leafing through an old photo album or speaking with an wise, old relative, the story becomes a fascinating view not only of Ducati’s, but also of Italy’s history. For me, it’s important to share this story with Ducati fans around the world."

Premiered at World Ducati Week 2010, the DVD is now available in U.S. format for $39.90 USD. You can find the DVD at your authorized Ducati motorcycle dealerships – just in time for the holidays.
