Created in March 2006, the Ducati Foundation is the non profit organization of the Ducati Group committed to cultural and social activities related to the world of motorcycling.

The Ducati Foundation believes in the creativity, imagination and desire for learning that every person is imbued with. It recognizes and supports the value of history as a treasure of the present and a lighthouse to the future.
The mission of the Ducati Foundation is to create unique learning experiences to excellence education and to save, value, celebrate and hand on the design and mechanical heritage that has made Italy world-renowned.

The Foundation is currently developing two projects: Fisica in Moto, the “hands-on” and interactive laboratory for mechanical experiments which is being created inside the Ducati factory and which is addressed to students, teachers, factory and museum visitors; The Italian Motorcycle Restoration School, theory and practical-based courses dedicated to the restoration of vintage Italian bikes.

Furthermore, in July 2007 the Ducati Foundation organized the charity auction of the Ducati model MH900e n.1, donated by a generous Ducatista. The funds raised have been used to support the Ducati Foundation 's own activities and the work of the Italian association “Associazione del Padre Pellegrino”, that helps abandoned children in Brazil.

In January 2007, the exhibition Il Mito e la Memoria (Myth and Memory) was held during the 31st edition of the trade show Art First in Bologna , Italy, to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the foundation of the Ducati company on July 4th 1926.

The Ducati Foundation is a dialogue and meeting place for enthusiasts of the creativity, beauty and heritage that play such an important part of the community of motorcyclists, their fans and their friends.
