From Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday to Jude Law in Alfie, the Vespa makes cameo appearances alongside important actors throughout the history of film. These are captured in an exhibit dedicated precisely to this: Vespa e Cinema at the Museo Piaggio in Pontedera, not far from Pisa and easily reachable by train. This is a special exhibit on now until January 15, 2011. The museum's regular collection is also worth a visit as it contains cult objects related to this brand as well as valuable unique pieces like the Vespa autographed by Salvador Dalì! The Piaggio collection (the company that makes the Vespa) includes engines, planes, and an Ape Firetruck that you won't want to leave Italy without seeing.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RnHRUeMhxqc[/youtube] Tutti-vogliono-Jessica
