After the WWII, Di Blasi back in home in Sicily to deal with the family farm, however, continuing to cultivate his passion for mechanics. They are, in fact, in 1950 the first prototype foldable scooter made for the purpose of study and experimentation.
Ulteriorte a step towards the future activities of the manufacturer is accomplished by presenting, at exhibition industry in Turin of 1968, a folding tricycle suited to the needs of people with disabilities, called "DIBLA 7", easily transportable and with propeller 2T Zanetti.
At the beginning of 1970 is tested innovation conformed to the chassis articulated quadrilateral deformable. This idea, protected by international patents, was applied to a folding bike (modelAvia) and a moped folding modelR2: two vehicles characterized by extreme ease of folding and details particularly original, like the first pedals folding ever produced.
These vehicles were displayed for the first time Exposure Cycle and motorcycle Milan of 1973, obtaining good appreciation of the press, immediately followed by a commercial success, as well attractiveness of the products, was also encouraged by the first major oil crisis whose result, in Italy, were the famous "car-free Sundays, best known as" austerity.
