  • The Ducati riders will be the stars of the evening: the full MotoGP podium will be present with the World Champion Francesco Bagnaia, Jorge Martín and Marco Bezzecchi, together with the WorldSBK and WorldSSP World Champions Álvaro Bautista and Nicolò Bulega

Borgo Panigale (Bologna, Italy), 6 December 2023 – With the presentation press conference held in the venue of the Municipality of Bologna in Palazzo D’Accursio, the spotlight was turned on “Campioni in Festa”, the event with which Ducati will celebrate the victories achieved in the MotoGP, WorldSBK and WorldSSP World Championships together with all enthusiasts.

On Friday 15 December, the Unipol Arena in Casalecchio di Reno (Bologna, Italy) will welcome the World Champions and all the Ducatisti for a big party with free entry, during which moments of storytelling to relive the emotions of the victories achieved in 2023 will alternate with pure entertainment, especially musical, to give the public a great time.

Claudio Domenicali, Ducati CEO, Matteo Lepore, Mayor of Bologna and Massimo Bosso, Mayor of Casalecchio di Reno , spoke at the press conference, describing the event program and highlighting once again the close relationship between Ducati, the Institutions and the territory. Representing the Unipol Arena, one of the most famous multi-purpose indoor sports facilities in Italy, was Claudio Sabatini.

Claudio Domenicali, Ducati CEO: “We have just concluded an extraordinary racing season and we are convinced that great victories deserve to be celebrated and shared. After having brought our Company and its history onto the international front pages, we believe it is right to celebrate these results in Bologna, the place where the Ducati magic was born and grew, by offering everyone a big party. The Unipol Arena allows us to put on a show capable of both exciting and entertaining the enthusiasts who participate. We invite everyone to join the party on December 15th to experience the emotion of feeling like World Champions together with us and our riders.”

Matteo Lepore, Mayor of Bologna: “Ducati wins big with 7 titles this year. We are very happy, it is a great confirmation of excellence made in Bologna. We will make this great celebration together and we invite everyone to be there to celebrate this great moment of Bolognese sport returning to high levels.”

The undisputed stars of “Campioni in Festa” will be the Ducati riders, who astride the fastest bikes in the world gave fans a record-breaking sporting season. The full podium of the 2023 MotoGP season will take the stage, monopolized by Ducati with the two-time World Champion Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team) on the top step, flanked by Jorge Martín (Pramac Racing Team) and Marco Bezzecchi (VR46 Racing Team). The World Champions in the main production-derived championships will also be present: Álvaro Bautista who defended his WorldSBK title and Nicolò Bulega who obtained his first title in WorldSSP. On stage, there will also be the “behind the scenes” figures that fans have come to know live from the Ducati pits: Luigi Dall’Igna, Paolo Ciabatti, Davide Tardozzi and Serafino Foti.

Dictating the rhythm of the party will be Barbara Pedrotti, journalist, TV presenter and great Ducati enthusiast and Gianluca Gazzoli, radio speaker and television host. The presence of the riders on the stage will be accompanied by Guido Meda: the unmistakable voice who, race after race, told the whole of Italy about Bagnaia’s success in MotoGP.

The choice of a location like the Unipol Arena made it natural to create a program that combines sport and music. The show on stage will be animated by Power100: a selection of 100 musicians from the international Rockin’1000 Community – which now has over 75,000 members and performs in stadiums all over the world – with a repertoire of iconic rock songs. At the end of the moment dedicated to their heroes, the public will then be able to have fun and dance thanks to the DJ set of an exceptional international guest like Martin Solveig, whose show will be preceded by the live performance of Nicola Zucchi, disc jockey and producer originally from Emilia Romagna and protagonist of numerous evenings in Italian clubs.

The gates will open at 8 p.m., and the show with the riders on stage will end around 10.30 p.m. to make way for DJ sets until about 00.30.

The “Campioni in Festa” event is open and free for all those who wish to celebrate together with Ducati. To download the entrance ticket, simply connect to this link.

For all those enthusiasts who want to immerse themselves in the Ducati world, it is possible to experience the Borgo Panigale Experience with a visit to the Ducati Factory and Museum. On the day of the celebration, the visits to the Borgo Panigale factory will be intensified. To secure a place for the visit at the desired time, it is recommended to book and purchase tickets online at https://tickets.ducati.com/. The Ducati Museum will be open as usual from 9:00 to 18:00.
