great vespa obsession quote

"Thus the Vespa came to be linked in my eyes with transgression, sin, and even temptation - not the temptation to possess the object, but the subtle seduction of faraway places where the Vespa was the only means of transport. And it entered into my imagination not as an object of desire, but as a symbol of an unfulfilled

desire." - Umberto Eco

Where did you get that quote?! Eco is a very famous political philosopher of the Critical Theory tradition. But he is Italian ... either way it was cool! ;-)

According to Umberto Eco, it's not the Vespa itself I want, but the freedom and mobility it represents!
