The Museum of Design Atlanta has launched a new exhibit putting the spotlight on classic Italian Motorcycles, Passione Italiana: Design of the Italian Motorcycle. The exhibit, which opened March 20 and runs through June 13, was put together with the help of Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum, and features 11 classic Italian motorcycles from the incredible Barber collection, including MV Agusta, Moto Morini and Ducati.

As part of its mission the museum, or MODA, focuses on all things design. Past exhibits have included examinations of bathroom design, Japanese architecture, graphic arts and handbags. MODA says the Passione Italiana exhibit includes interpretative stations to “showcase and discuss the design of Italian motorcycles in the larger context of fashion, industrial and furniture design,” The exhibit aim is to compare vintage Italian motorcycles as a means to gain insight into the passion of both designers and riders for these now classic machines.
