Moto Guzzi Open House - A smell of history

I'm not good with words in italian, figure out in english...
Nevermind.
This weekend and the next (14-15 and 21-22 september 2013) the "Moto Guzzi Open House" is going on in Mandello del Lario.
Test rides with the new California 1400 and the V7, and free visit to the production lines and the museum.
I can say for the amount of people, this will be a success. And today was only the first day.
I live less then 100 miles from Mandello, but yet I never been there before.
My bad, cosidering I learned to ride about 35 years ago on Moto Guzzi 50cc: 5 speed, on the right side, first gear up!

Let's see some pictures.
