“Enrico Bernardi” Machine Museum – Bernardi’s engines

0
The "Enrico Bernardi" Machine Museum houses the main examples of internal combustion engines that marked the history of motoring in Europe in the second half of the 19th century. All the exhibits, from the atmospheric engine to the Pia engine - single- and double-acting - operating according to a mixed direct- and atmospheric-action cycle, from the 4-stroke Lauro engine to the single-wheel trolley to propel a common bicycle - a solution that anticipates modern motoscooters - to the 3-wheel car, were built by Enrico Bernardi. The functioning of the engines on display has been restored in recent years following Bernardi's instructions noted in his notebooks, and can be seen in the films reproduced on the monitors in the museum.
