Piaggio became famous in 1946 with the production of scooters that were named Vespa (wasp).

Originally, Piaggio was a (war) aircraft manufacturer who was not allowed to build any aircraft after the Second World War. After all, Italy had collaborated with the Germans. That is why the Piaggio management decided to transform their production line into a scooter factory. 

Many aircraft parts were initially used: for example, the front wheel was the nose wheel of the earlier planes, the engine was an adapted starter motor, etc. Soon these scooters - designed by Corradino dAscanio - were popular in post-war Italy, where there was a great need for simple means of transport. Vespa became a brand name.

In 1970, the Gilera brand joined the Piaggio group, followed by the Puch brand in 1987. Today, Vespa is not just a scooter anymore. A few years ago, the production of mopeds or stopped, but the Vespa mopeds are still very popular among the youth.

Today Vespa only produces scooters. 
Vespa Piaggio has produced several models of mopeds, including the Ciao, Si, Bravo, Citta.

The Ciao and the Citta are still very popular today. There are several fan sites of these mopeds, including and on Facebook there are various forums including gilera citta loversss or Gilera Citta Club

The production of the Ciao started in 1967 and stopped in 2006. During this time many new options have also been added to the Vespas, such as a mix. That is a Vespa with a separate oil tank, and he mixes the oil himself. Other options have also been added over the years, such as a horn or exhaust catalytic converter. 

For the rest, the Vespas have remained almost identical optically and motor over the years.
