A Brief History of the Italian Marque

Manufactured by Edoardo Mascagni of Antignano (Livorno), 1924-1935

Son of Italian opera composer Pietro Mascagni, Edoardo built motorcycles using his own frames which housed JAP SV and OHV engines of 173 to 499 cc, Blackburne 248 and 348cc OHV engines, and also built his own two-stroke engines of 174 and 346cc. These were quite possibly JAP AZA engines built under licence.

He died in the Abyssinian war in 1935.
