Motogiro d'Italia 2023

The Motogiro of Italy is the historical re-enactment of the oldest and most prestigious Italian motorcycle race in stages. 

Established in 1914, the Motogiro achieved its peak of success from 1953 to 1957, when it became a myth for motorcycle enthusiasts thanks to the efforts of the Italian Motorcycle Federation. The adventure ended in 1957, when all motorcycle races on public roads were abolished in the aftermath of the terrible 1957 Mille Miglia accident.

The “new” Motogiro d ‘Italia is a commemorative event that takes place under the direct patronage of the IMF (Italian Motorcycle Federation) and FIM. The participating motorcycles are, as a rule, road (or regular) motorcycles produced in the years of the Motogiro, but recently the participation of other models unrelated to the years 1953 – 1957 has been authorized. The motoclub Terni «Libero Liberati and Paolo Pileri» since 1989 manages the organization for the historical re-enactment of the Motogiro, proposing new routes every year and following the registrations of the participants to the event. Over fifty people make up the staff following the event; from the logistics staff to the marshals, to the relay races.

The 2023 edition will take place from May 21st to May 27th, departure from Pisa
