The exhibition focuses on the golden age of Bologna as far as motorcycle production is concerned. Between the 1920s and the 1950s, the Bologna area was an important national production hub thanks its large number of small and medium companies manufacturing finished motorcycles (over 70 in that period, though with changing fortunes), and an even larger number of firms capable of supplying all the parts necessary to assembly all kinds of motorcycle.

The adventurous story of the C.M company goes back to those years, and is similar to that of many other Bologna companies. 
The Moto bolognesi C.M - Trent'anni memorabili 1929-1959 (C.M Bologna motorcycles - Thirty unforgettable years) exhibition features 15 motorcycles dating back to the 1930s-1950s. They are among the most important models produced by C.M and the most interesting pieces belonging to collections in Piedmont, Lombardy, Veneto, and Emilia-Romagna. 
Three screenings also feature a rich collection of photos and catalogues, most of them never seen before.
