THE BIRTH OF PRIMAVERA
The end of World War II marked the commencement of an economic boom in the 1960s period in Europe, and especially in Italy. From that moment, life was changed for the Generation X. They began to think about how to follow their passion, not just settling for the daily routine.
This specific time in history was a milestone in the evolution of civilization in which self – expression and the curiosity to explore the world became the new motto for the youngsters. They started to feel inside themselves the flame of passion that was burning for new experiences – something authentic and spontaneous.
At that time, people chose to escape the city for a while and ride away on their trip to the countryside. Serving that purpose, Vespa quickly turned into a stylish, classy leisure product that upgraded the rider’s experience rather than being just a work tool. That urge had made this made-in-Italian scooter became the number one choice, and turned Vespa into the iconic symbol of style, timeless beauty, and passion to chase ones’ dream in young generation’s eyes.
The picnic concept
Originated from the French word “pique – nique”, the picnic concept describes a social gathering where each attendee brings a share of food. Having a picnic together means that people can expect an enjoyable moment of togetherness, time spent with their friends and family, relaxing in the shadow or under the sun, exploring the world just outside of their busy towns. Picnic is a state of mind, a moment of enjoyment, the time to breath and savor each single moment of the day.
