    The DEMM car and moped museum has been achieved thanks to the passion and hard work of Giuliano and Mosè Mazzini.

    Giuliano Mazzini has dedicated his whole life to DEMM; joining the company as a mechanical designer, becoming production manager, director and finally vice president. 
    DEMM has produced: 
    - Mopeds with 40cc, 49cc and 53 cc engines, both two and four-stroke,  in over 800.000 units of which 15% export;
    - lightweight motorcycles with 75cc, 125cc and 175cc engines, both two and four-stroke,  in over 7.000 units;
    - Three-wheeled vehicles (cars and mopeds) with 49cc and 175cc two-stroke engines  in over 1.500 units.
    To achieve the world record became a prestigious objective.
    Three attempts and the record was won. Two attempts in 1956 and the last one in 1958. 
    Inside the museum it is possible to see the 'Siluro' (Streamlined moped  with 50cc two-stroke engine - in photo). A unique example which gained 24 world records in 1956.  1958 saw the last national competitions for DEMM
     Museum exhibits include motorcycles that participated in the Italian Championships from the year 1954.
