The Piaggio concern was founded in 1884 and was engaged in the production of ships, aircraft and equipment for industry.
After the war ended, Enrico, the son of the founder of the company, Rinaldo Piaggio, decided to start production of light 2-wheeled vehicles, which are so necessary for the poor state recovering from hostilities.
Piaggio became famous in 1946, shortly after the appearance of Vespa scooters on the assembly line.
In the late 60s, the reins of Piaggio passed to the Agnelli family, which at that time already owned the Fiat concern.
In 1964, the new bosses separated the Piaggo aircraft manufacturing division into a separate structure, called the IAM Rinaldo Piaggio (nowadays Piaggio Aero).
In 1969, the company completed the acquisition of the well-known motorcycle manufacturer Gilera, and the range of models expanded to include mopeds with 50cc engines.
By the beginning of the 21st century, Piaggio's financial condition began to be desired, as a result of which in 1999 the concern was under the control of the Morgan Grenfell fund (the English division of Deutsche Bank).
And already in 2003, most of Piaggio was acquired by the IMMSI investment group (Italy), headed by a successful Italian businessman Roberto Colananino, who has experience in managing such large structures as Telecom Italia and Olivetti.
