From its origins the Italian battlefields of the Second World War, to movie roles as Audrey Hepburn’s transport in Roman Holiday and on through the current vintage revival, the classic Italian motor scooter is an enduring design classic from the 20th century.

Scootermania celebrates the place of scooters in popular culture from films, music and fashion – from the British Mods of the 1960s and 1980s to their role in American and Japanese fashion and in their  Italian homeland.

The evolution and design of classic models such as the Vespa 150 GS and the Lambretta Li 150 Series 3 are covered, and the book also includes a number of specially photographed features on modern scooter designers, collectors and artists.
