Panther Hollow: Panther Hollow, named for the mountain lions once native to the area, is a small, somewhat isolated neighborhood located in the Central Oakland section of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The neighborhood was settled in the late 19th century mostly by Italian immigrants from Pizzoferrato and Gamberale, Italy. Even today, park benches and picnic tables in the neighborhood are painted in the red, white, and green of the Italian flag and a sign post marks the distance to the two Italian cities from which most of the original residents arrived. When Moto Guzzi, the legendary italian motorcycle manufacturer, was announced as the marquee bike of Motorbikes Pittsburgh this year, it seemed only natural to base the poster art around Panther Hollow. We thought it would be fun to have a panther riding the bike under the Panther Hollow bridge.
