Hundreds of colourful three-wheelers gathered in the Tuscan countryside on Saturday (April 13) to celebrate over 70 years of production of the Ape (pronounced: aa-pey) by Italian scooter maker Piaggio.

Meaning "bee" in Italian, compared to the vespa which means "wasp", the Ape is a three-wheeled truck, based on a scooter in the front but with a flatbed over two wheels on the back.

Enthusiasts from all over Europe gathered in Pontedera, home of Piaggio, to join in festivities for their very special vehicles.

Introduced in 1948, the design was intended to help post-war Italians attain a cheap vehicle to help with commercial transportation. Eventually a cabin was created to cover the driver in the front.

Having become part of the Italian DNA, the Ape has always been considered as a symbol of the Italian countryside lifestyle.
