Bologna's Industrial Heritage Museum opened a new exhibit on October 17, 2021, that Italian motorcycle fans will want to see. The title translates to "Bolognese motorcycles from 1950 to 1960: The Motorcycle Meets the Car," and there's plenty to see for motorcycle enthusiasts. 

The exhibit consists of 32 post-war Italian motorcycles, including seven historic Ducati models, and each is a work of art. If you wish, you can also see plenty of Ducati motorcycle history at the Ducati Museum. The BIHM even has an agreement in place with the Ducati Museum, so you can visit both and make a day of it if you wish. 


One of the best things about the BIHM exhibit is that visitors can see not only Ducati bikes, but also a number of Bolognese motorcycles from the same era. You'll also see all those bikes in their greater historical context, along with Italian automobiles at the time as they became more accessible to and desired by the general public. This is your catnip if you're a total history nerd and you love vehicular history of any kind.
There are more than just vehicles on display. We include films from the nearby Istituto Luce, as well as a variety of period images to really give you a feel for the period. If you have an Android or iOS device handy, you can also download the BIHM app, which has additional information to enhance your visit.  


If you plan to visit the Bologna area in the near future, you still have plenty of time to include this exhibition in your itinerary. The exhibition runs from October 17, 2021 through May 15, 2022. An additional fee is not required beyond the regular Museum entrance fee applicable to your circumstance (adult, child, senior, etc.).  

As you might expect, the Museum has strict mitigation procedures in place, including mask-wearing requirements, occupancy restrictions, and time restrictions on how long you can spend in the museum so other visitors can also visit safely. The COVID Green Pass must also be displayed at the ticket counter when visitors check in.
