Physics in Motion is a project that the Ducati Foundation’s been working on since 2008 – and the iconic Italian brand has just opened a permanent laboratory at the historic Ducati factory in Borgo Panigale.

In essence, Physics in Motion is an educational-interactive laboratory which aims to teach visitors the basic principles of physics applied to motorcycles. It’ll also be hosting over 8,000 students each year, from high schools throughout Italy. The students will have the opportunity to experience the physical laws that are behind the creation of an engine and a bike dynamics. Cool right?


The workshop will be open for visits on Saturdays and Sundays during the school period (October – June) and all week in the summer (June – September) with closure on Wednesdays. There are four weekend visits: 9:30, 11:30, 2:00 and 4:00 – and in the week there are three: 10:30, 12:15 and 15:00.

To book you must fill out the registration form which is available on the Physics in Motion website – and if you book into the Physics in Motorcycle laboratory, you’ll also get entry to the Ducati Museum.  For more information, visit:
