It is amazing how the legend of Innocenti and Lambretta have been wiped from memory at the old factory site in the Lambrate area of Milan. The park in the middle of the old site is called Parco Maserati and the Piazza on the site is called Piazza Vigili del Fuoco (Firefighters Square). However there is one place where they pay homage to the mythical product of Innocenti. In the middle of the Piazza sits the Bar il Lambrettino. Sharing its name with a creek which ran though the factory which was used by Innocenti as the moniker for some of it's mopeds this is a great little bar to drop in on if you are walking around the site. Of course being in Europe you can even get beer on tap in this little Cafe.
