Piero Prampolini: 95 years old and a glorious past as a designer and planner that a memory that is still prodigiously intact allows him to recount in detail.

Benelli, MotoBi, Mondial and Parilla were the motorbike brands to which he dedicated 45 years of work, putting his technical talent and design creativity to good use.

Who among motorbike enthusiasts does not remember the Tornado 650, the Benelli/Saarinen 500 GP, the Catria MotoBi 175, the Mondial 175 TV?

All works of great ability, from single-cylinder to fractioned multi-cylinder engines, characterized by daring innovations conceived with the very clear rationality that has always been unanimously recognized.

This is why they called him 'engineer', even though he was not an engineer because he could not afford to study.

This is what Nunzia Manicardi called him at the time, and she has now entitled this book, revised by Prampolini himself and packed with many of his unpublished and fascinating technical drawings.

This book is also important for understanding who we were and what we were capable of doing, and also includes Prampolini's work experience as a draftsman in the Avio Department of the Officine Meccaniche Reggiane.

It adds to the many other volumes dedicated by Manicardi to the protagonists of historic motoring, celebrating the designer from Reggio Emilia together with the unrepeatable era of Italian motor mechanics that he, as the last witness, contributed in a decisive way to making great.
