In a historic moment for Ducati, the traditional headquarters at Borgo Panigale will make way for a residential complex, with Ducati facilities moving to Persicetana and a new factory measuring 165,000 square metres.
The reason for the move includes the need for greater efficiency in production and collaboration with the university and regional government. A research centre is being considered as a possible future addition to the facilities.
The new Ducati factory will have events and exhibitions space for customers and visitors, with a new restaurant and test track. Despite the current economic crisis, Ducati is experiencing a healthy period, with the regional government supporting the important employment and economic opportunities provided by the presence of such a company in the province of Bologna.
