Italian Motor Bike with a twin front wheel

I was recently at an Italian cycle race and the support teams were using a powerfull motor bike with a set of parallel narrow twin front wheels, it was an Italian name which I can't remember. I was interested to find out more about this strange bike, have you any idea of the make?
Manchester

The bike is a Piaggio MP3.
