Creations and expansions
On June 1, 1935, the cornerstone of the factory in Borgo Panigale was laid.
The new complex was an extremely modern and ambitious project, with the objective of establishing an industrial and technological center in Bologna.
During this time the Ducati industry further developed abroad, and opened branches and offices in London, Paris, New York, Sydney and Caracas, assuring direct service and assistance to its clientele in all the major world markets.
