This historical brand from Milan is the example of how a bicycle, in many different shapes, can mould and embody the identity of a country and an era: its extraordinary vans and working bicycles in their many different versions, sporty ones, racing bicycles and city bikes for children or for adults. In 2018 year we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the republic of Italy.
In contrast with the chrome look that was uncovered during paint removal, the Brooks b17 brown leather seat, the tan wall tires, but most of all the handlebars: originally placed highly for commuting but then modified in order to show its racy character. To match these elements, the end of the bars where laced with handmade leather tape. Sharp contrasts yet aesthetic poetry.
