Rome / Bologna, November 20, 2022 - The celebrations for winning the MotoGP World Championship title continue for Ducati with a highly prestigious appointment in Rome. The President of the Italian Republic, Sergio Mattarella, received Francesco Bagnaia, the Ducati Corse team, and a Ducati delegation.

Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia is an Italian Grand Prix motorcycle racer competing in MotoGP for the Ducati Lenovo Team. He is the 2022 MotoGP World Champion.

Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali, the Ducati Corse General Manager Luigi Dall’Igna, and Ducati Corse Sporting Director Paolo Ciabatti also attended the meeting.

Francesco Bagnaia, MotoGP 2022 World Champion and official rider of the Ducati Lenovo Team: “I would like to thank the President of the Republic for welcoming us to the Quirinale (President’s official residence), for us, it is a real honor. This year we achieved an extraordinary result, of which we are very proud: we won the MotoGP World Championship, an Italian rider on an Italian motorcycle, 50 years after Giacomo Agostini’s last victory in the world championship on an MV Agusta. This result is the fruit of many years of hard work, both by the team and me. Together we have managed to improve our bike to make it the benchmark in the championship, and we must be proud of this. After crossing the finish line in Valencia two weeks ago, I completed the last few meters proudly carrying our flag, aware of having demonstrated to the whole world that the talent and ingenuity of us Italians are second to none”.

Claudio Domenicali, Ducati CEO: “It is a real honor today to be received at the Quirinale (President’s official residence) by the President of the Republic, whom I would like to thank sincerely for the invitation. Ducati is a global company with firm roots in our country, precisely in the Motor Valley of Emilia-Romagna, where we conceive, design, and develop our bikes. As proof of the level achieved by national academic institutions and the technological expertise of our country, the majority of Ducati engineers come from Italian universities. We are proud ambassadors of Made in Italy, and we honor this responsibility every day by affixing a small tricolor to every Ducati motorcycle sold worldwide. Being here today makes us realize how much this success belongs to Ducati and all of Italy. Together with Francesco Bagnaia, we have achieved much more than a victory. We have written a page of motorsport history and demonstrated how Italian skills and technology are world-class.”
