Born in Sicily, he later moved to Lombardy and in 1907 founded his company at "Cascina Costa" in Samarate (Varese). Production of Agusta aircraft soared during the First World War. In 1927 in response to the Italians' growing demand for individual motorised transport Agusta converted production from aircraft to motorcycles. MV Agusta became a racing legend thanks to outstanding progress in performance and technology.
