Part one: who is Casa Lambretta?
Casa Lambretta was founded in 1980 by Vittorio Tessera in order to improve the spare parts supply for the Lambretta. At that time, even in Italy, the Lambretta scooter was considered as a stepchild, but today, almost forty years later, the Lambretta is more popular than ever and the Casa Lambretta has now a wide range of spare parts for the Lambretta, from the model A to the 200, you can find almost everything in our Casa Lambretta shop.
The most important spare parts supplier worldwide
However, Casa Lambretta is much more than –probably- the main supplier of spare parts for Lambretta. But we’ll tell you about that next time.
Casa Lambretta is in Rodano, a small village of the metropolitan area of Milan, not far away from the airport of Linate and about 15 minutes from the Centro Studi and the former Innocenti factory.
This is Vittorio’s homeland and this is one of the reasons why he decided to devote himself to the Lambretta. Vittorio tells us:
Casa Lambretta moved to the current premises in 2010. Shortly after their move we visited them before the Italian summer break in order to get in a supply of spare parts and to help Julia buy her first Lambretta, a beautiful SX 150 (see article here).
Made in Italy
Meanwhile Vittorio’s 800 square metre premises include his spare parts warehouse, the workshop for his three restorers, Mario, Maurizio und Fabio (permanent employees of the company) and his new office. 95% of the Casa Lambretta spare parts is made in Italy. The small percentage of parts bought in addition is labelled with an A which states the origin (Asia) of the product. Vittorio’s wife, Orietta, is responsible for the orders placed by the Casa Lambretta concessionaires.
Museo Scooter & Lambretta
On the floor above the premises there’s the Scooter & Lambretta museum. We have already written about Casa Lambretta museum, but we’ll report again about the museum, its history and exhibits.
Casa Lambretta concessionaire for Germany
Since the Eurolambretta 2003 Scooter Center is Casa Lambretta concessionaire for Germany and we still like to remember how we, together with our friends Roberto Graupner and Markus Fröschen, successfully concluded the deal with Vittorio in Assisi. From a mere business relationship and the love for the Lambretta we developed a long and close friendship.

In the next articles we want to show you with a couple of examples the improved quality of the Casa Lambretta items. We’d also like to tell you more about the museum and its exhibits as well as the firs years of company’s activity. In particular we’d like to report about how Vittorio managed to save in time important documents as well as scooters from the factory.
