The history of Ducati on DVD

30th June 2010 Print

Revealed for the first time on DVD, the incredible history of Ducati told with rare movie footage, pictures and interviews from its creation in 1926 to the 2007 MotoGP World Championship title.

In close collaboration with "Strike Video" of Milan, Ducati worked with director, Angelo Barberi, to achieve the most complete and compelling account of their 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.

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 production of the Scrambler and from Superbike dominance to debut in MotoGP, witnesses recount their personal experiences of a journey that is the story of a company, a view of Italian social history and the passion and genius that created the Ducati engines destined to write the history of motorcycling.

"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 a wise, old relative, the story becomes a fascinating view not only of Ducati’s, but also of Italy’s history. For me, it is vitally important that we share this story with Ducati fans around the world."

"Ducati – The Story" is available on DVD from Ducati Stores world-wide from July 2010 onwards.
