Demm was an Italian producer of scooters and mopeds. This museum was realized by Giuliano and Mose Mazzini, a father and son team. Giuliano worked at Demm for decades, rising from the position of a simple draftsman to vice president. The collection includes serial models, prototypes and the factory archive.
The collection contains documents relating to both World Wars, but the centenary year of the outbreak of the Great War was considered an appropriate time to open the new museum, with most of the available space reserved for exhibits related to that earlier conflict, some of them unique and extraordinary. The first part of the museum was opened with an emphasis on inclusivity, as its creator wished.
