Here you enter the legend! Perhaps even more than football, especially when thinking about the 1900s, it is cycling that has given us the most beautiful, most intense stories of men who have excited a country and who have sometimes divided it or who knows, as some hypothesize, even saved.
Words will never be enough to tell our emotion, joy, satisfaction in being able to pay homage to one of the greatest Italian athletes of all time, one of the greatest cyclists in the world. The Celebrative Sticker # 27 is Gino Bartali!
A great man, also remembered for his human commitment in helping Italian Jews to escape the Nazi-fascist ferocity, an incredible sportsman who has traveled over twenty years at the highest levels, despite the Second World War which caused all competitions to be suspended . Among his many triumphs we wanted to remember perhaps the most famous one, which has become legendary. The victory at the 1948 Tour De France, in the collective imagination, which mixes with myth and legend, is what saved us from a possible civil war after the non-fatal attack on Palmiro Togliatti.
For this reason, the solidarity sticker will be presented in Florence on Friday 15 July at the Bartali Cycling Museum. Exactly 74 years after the famous victory in the Cannes-Briancon leg, the day after the attack on the Secretary of the Italian Communist Party, which took place on 14 July 1948. The particular numbered and limited edition of the solidarity sticker, as often happens with our productions, instead it wants to be a reminder of Gino’s first important victory, the “Coppa Bologna” in 1934, although it is a race that took place in Siena, but we still liked the idea.
We want to thank the Bartali family, Luigi, Bianca Maria, Gioia and Stella with the rest of the family who approved and made possible this project, born to remember Gino Bartali but also to support those who, in the name of ” Ginetaccio ”continues to carry forward the historical memory, the Museum of Cycling – Gino Bartali in Florence.
