Italian Motorcycling Federation

History of FMI

Costitution

The first motorcycle was ridden in Italy in 1889 thanks to Enrico Bernardi from Padua. In the inter-war period, riding motorbikes attained great popularity and the Italian industry emerged as the best in the world. The Italian Motorcycling Federation, reconstituted with this name on 23 March 1946 in Montecatini, took its origin from the Italian Motorcycling Club, founded in Milan on 31 May 1911 (the first Motorcycling Club appeared, also in Milan, on 27 February 1904).
Set up as a non-profit organisation by Royal decree no. 1673 of 28 December 1931, the Motorcycling Club of Italy, recognised by CONI in March 1927, moved its headquarters to Rome in 1928. In 1932, it took the name of "Royal Motorcycling Club of Italy". In 1934, the extraordinary management of the RMCI (Royal Motorcycling Club of Italy) ended with the appointment by CONI of Hugo Leonardi, as president. A few months earlier the name was changed to the Italian Royal Motorcycling Federation (RFMI). In 1943 the Federation ceased its function and resumed it in the postwar period with the Montecatini Assembly (1946). The Federation is listed in Law no. 426 of 16/02/1942 (as RFMI).
