07 Feb 2014 “Flying” in the blue: Lambretta vs. Vespa scooter
Blue roses did not exist in nature until Pier Luigi Torre created them. Pier Luigi Torre believed that blue is the color of the impossible, of dreams, of utopia.
Pier Luigi Torre was an aeronautical engineer who designed engines for the airplane (the Savoia-Marchetti seaplane) that crossed the ocean between Italy and America in 1933, an expedition led by Torre himself as a General in the Air Force. This was an extraordinary feat that subsequently inspired another invention: the first, rudimental black box.
