It ignited the dreams of entire generations, becoming a true symbol of freedom for young people. It is the legendary “Vespa,” conceived by Piaggio back in 1946, and which in an even “acrobatic” guise will be back in the spotlight on Sunday, March 26, in Castelfiorentino (FI) as part of “Melodie di primavera,” a festival organized by the CCN association “Tre Piazze” in collaboration with Confesercenti and the patronage of the City of Castelfiorentino (open stores).
An event that effectively inaugurates the spring season and will enliven the main squares in the center of Castelfiorentino with a series of initiatives aimed at all ages, from adults to children. Starting at 9 a.m., in Piazza Gramsci there will be inflatables to entertain all children, who will be able to delight themselves at some of the stands organized by AVIS with popcorn or cotton candy. At the same time, a flower and handicraft market curated by Confesercenti and Promoeventi will be set up in Cavour Square, while in Kennedy Square there will be a jeep and off-road vehicle display.
Also in Gramsci Square, moreover (from 9 a.m.) make way for the mythical “Vespa” with the rally organized by the Vespa Club of Castelfiorentino, which will see enthusiasts compete for the entire day in a series of gymkhana games. In the afternoon, around 5 p.m., there will also be a special performance by “Nicola l’Impennatore,” a famous freestyle rider who has been doing his first “wheelies” since he was 15 years old and who today, with his vespas, tours all over Italy performing reckless stunts, performed with skill and experience. A show not to be missed and a first for the Castelfiorentino area (http://www.vespafreestyle.it/)
Also scheduled in the afternoon (Piazza Cavour, 4 p.m.) is a Musical Concert by the Orpheus Association.
“Melodie di primavera” notes Councillor for Commerce Simone Bruchi, “comes with a diverse program, open to all. It is a festival that virtuously combines a pinch of amarcord, with the exhibition and performance of a symbol of the motor world that marked an era, with the flower and craft market, lots of good music and a play area dedicated to children. It will be held in conjunction with the open stores, offering those who wish to take advantage of the arrival of the warm season to do some shopping and take a stroll downtown. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Castelfiorentino Vespa Club, the associations and all the exhibitors, such as the Valdelsa Classic Motor Club and Sereni Off Road, who have collaborated on the event.”
