Picture a winding road with more curves than Marilyn Monroe as it rises and falls beneath your feet. The 50cc motor scooter you’re commandeering hums and purrs as it hugs each turn. To your right, the majestic landscapes unfold in the distance; to your left, the mountains invite you to feel the freedom and glory of a Fellini hero or heroine.
