Dear Vespisti, with this information we would like to give you some useful pointers by answering your most frequently asked questions.
When does the WVD Pontedera 2024 take place?
From Thursday 18 April 2024 to Sunday 21 April 2024
Why was this date chosen for VWD Pontedera 2024?
The date of these Vespa World Days was chosen by the Vespa World Club, which wanted to celebrate Piaggio’s 140th anniversary and the 100th anniversary of the Pontedera plant in Pontedera on a date that would not overlap with any international event since, by internal regulations, no other international events can be held in the month before and the 15 days after VWD. We will thus celebrate the Vespa where it was born and we will do so on its birthday. This anniversary is worth the decision to move away from the usual summer dates, which are already packed with events.
Where exactly will VWD Pontedera 2024 take place?
The venue of the event, where the Vespa Village will be set up, is “Piazza del Mercato”, 56025 Pontedera (PI), a large and modern asphalted car park 1 km from the town centre.
What will the weather be like?
The weather in April in Tuscany is relatively cold, but pleasant if you wear comfortable clothes. The thermometer reaches an average high of 19°C and a low of 11°C: the average temperature for the period in Tuscany is 15°C.
It rains frequently, so we advise our Vespisti friends to have rainwear and suitable clothing, while hoping for the typical spring alternation of wet weather, warm sunshine and crisp air.
When does VWD Pontedera 2024 officially start?
On Thursday 18 April 2024 at 2 p.m. the Vespa Village opens, and at 3 p.m. there will be the official opening. Before this date, the Vespa Village will be closed. Program is updating on the VWD24_program page
When does VWD Pontedera 2024 officially end?
On Sunday, 21 April 2024 at 2 p.m. there will be the Vespa Village closing ceremony.
What is the currency in use at Vespa Village?
The Vespa Village currency is the Euro.
Who can register for VWD Pontedera 2024?
Participation is reserved for Vespa Club members and therefore for all people regularly registered with a local Vespa Club affiliated with a National Vespa Club, member of the Vespa World Club.
When will registration open?
We will open registration on 10 January at 12 noon, Italian time.
How many tickets are available?
There will be 8000 registrations available and each country will have a quota of tickets available as we want all national Vespa Clubs to be able to get a place, regardless of time zone and club size.
