Do you like Vespas? Because if you don’t think that Piaggio’s greatest mechanical creation is a monument to Italian design just yet, we’re willing to bet that French creative agency Nomoon can change your mind with this craftily put-together little animation Vespalogy documenting the advancement of the classic scooter.
Starting with the original model in 1946, the short clip sees each version morph transformer-like from its predecessor into a design which becomes progressively more modern with each evolution. Cleverly and cheekily documenting the history of the brand’s best-revered designs, Nomoon’s clip captures the essence of Vespa in one burst of retro animation.
