Fontanella Motorised Bicycles

A Brief History of the Italian Marque

Fontanella moto d'epoca

La ditta pavese Fontanella Ettore & Figli è una delle tante officine che costruiscono biciclette.

La realizzazione di un telaio con motore ausiliario Mosquito la si deve a Rino Fontanella, figlio di Ettore, nel 1948.

Fontanella Ettore & Figli was one the many workshops that built bicycles.

In 1948 one of the sons, Rino Fontanella, built a moped using a Mosquito auxiliary bicycle engine mounted in a frame of the firm's construction.
