Hear ye, hear ye, MV Agusta fans, House Schiranna prepared a new and ultra-cool treat for you in the shape of a new book that encompasses the entire history of the legendary Italian brand.
MV AGUSTA From 1945 to the Present is a completely recreated and updated edition of the original book documented by Mario Colombo and Roberto Patrignani. The newer parts of the book are the result of the hard work Massimo Chierici and Franco Daudo put in. The new MV Agusta book is now a rich 360-page document that is structured in two parts.

The first part deals with "human affairs, technical aspects, industrial and sporting achievements," as MV Agusta informs us. The pivotal character is Claudio Castiglioni, the late father of the actual CEO, Giovanni Castiglioni. Claudio Castiglioni, a man who dedicated his entire life to motorcycles is responsible for the revival of the MV Agusta brand in the nineties.

Also in the first part of the book, readers will find the history of MV Agusta's racing prowess, with plenty of references to the biggest names that are tied to this brand, such as Carlo Ubbiali, Mike Hailwood, or Giacomo Agostini.

The second part of the book is a visual thesaurus. It is a systematic catalog of all the models manufactured by MV Agusta comprising street and track models, "including versions of the iconic F4, F3, and Brutale models that all exude the concept of excellence in world motorcycle production," according to the press release.

The MV AGUSTA From 1945 to the Present book is published by Giorgio Nada Editore both in Italian and English, and is available "in Italy through the structure of Giunti Editore, the stores 'Giunti al Punto' and the 'Libreria dell’Automobile' in Milan, as well as a consolidated distribution network for the foreign markets."

You can get it directly from Giorgio Nada Editore's webshop for a discounted price of €42.5 (equivalent to $48).
