Kansainvälinen Finita-kokoontumisajo Vesileppiksessä elokuussa

To 10.08.2023

Giovanni Franchi kierteli keväällä 1995 motoristiystäviensä kanssa viimeisissä kokoontumisajoissa Italiassa ennen muuttoaan Suomeen.

Hänen ystävänsä sanoivat: "A Giovanni é finita" eli suomeksi: "No niin, Giovanni, nyt se on sitten loppu", tarkoittaen hyvien yhteisten kokootumisten loppumista pitkän välimatkan vuoksi.

Giovanni vastasi heille: "Non è finita, sara finita!" eli ei ole loppu vaan tulee olemaan Finita, suomalais-italialainen kokoontumisajo vuorovuosin molemmissa maissa.

Giovannin muutettua Suomeen löytyi uudesta kotikaupungista Kuopion Moottoripyöräclubi kokoontumisajon järjestäjäksi. Näin hänen idea ystävyyden luomiseksi ja ylläpitämiseksi eri maiden matkamotoristien välillä sai alkunsa.

Vesileppis on saanut kunnia toimia tapahtuman vuoden 2023 isäntänä!

ENGLISH:

In the spring of 1995, Giovanni Franchi was riding around the last gatherings with his motorcyclist friends before he moved to Finland. His friends said a Giovanni è FINITA which means Giovanni, it’s over now, the end to the good get-togethers because of the long distance.

Giovanni responded to them: non è FINITA, sarà FINITA! It’s not the end but there will be FINITA, a Finnish-Italian riders’ meeting every other year in either country.

After Giovanni had moved to Finland, he found Kuopion Moottoripyöräclubi that would arrange such a meeting in his new hometown. Thus his idea to create and maintain friendships between motorcyclists from different countries was born.

FINITA is an international motorcyclists’ meeting event and meant for motorcyclists interested in different cultures and making friends.

The event has made known national and regional culture in both countries, but the main focus has been on getting together and relaxation in the great company of motorcyclists.

Kuopion Moottoripyöräclubi ry is responsible for arranging the events in Finland. Smaller pre and post FINITA meetings have taken place in addition to the actual meetings (Pre- and Dopo-FINITA, in Italian). Touring Finlandia Moottorikerho ry has been active in arranging and informing about of these side events in Finland.

Alberto Dosi, motorbiker friend from Turano Lodigiano, Giovanni’s home village, has arranged several Dopo-FINITAs in Italy, and the last one was in 2016 in his new home country in St. Oswald, Austria.

Adriano Parri from Toscana has twice arranged Dopo-FINITA in Montalcino. Motoclub Jarno Saarinen has once arranged Dopo-FINITA in Petrignano d’Assisi.

It’s been a tradition to reward FINITA riders who have made the longest trip, or the youngest participant as well as the most loyal FINITA visitors.


The number of Finns visiting FINITA events in Italy has been 100 -150. Events in Finland have been visited by 40-90 guests from Central Europe, mainly from Italy.

The first FINITA meeting was organized on camping site Rauhalahti in Kuopio, Finland. The year was 1997. The 2023 edition will be heald at Vesileppis, Leppävirta. Finland. Welcome.
