´Spiderman´ Marco Melandri at Mugello

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of his debut, the great comic-book hero has now made the silver screen: Spiderman is on its way to Italian cinemas, and Columbia Pictures has chosen Aprilia to promote the film in Italy. This morning, the special Spiderman livery adorning the official Aprilia rider Marco Melandri's RSW 250 was presented to the Press. The livery is custom-made, but Marco's riding-suit and helmet are also true reproductions of the famous comic-book superhero.

In the first week of screening in US cinemas, Spiderman broke all the records ever set in the history of the cinema, with box-office takings of 114 million dollars. The film will be showing in Italian cinemas as from 7 June. For the entire Mugello Grand Prix weekend, Marco Melandri will be racing with a new look: that of Spiderman.
