Celebrative Sticker #113: LUIGI MALABROCCA!

We are all Malabrocca! The Celebrative Sticker #113 solidarity sticker is dedicated to the two-wheel legend Luisin known as the “Chinese”.

Luigi Malabrocca was born in Tortona on 22 June 1920. His passion was cycling, a fellow countryman and great friend of Fausto Coppi, he won 138 races including the Paris-Nantes of 1937, the Tour of Yugoslavia of 1949 and twice (1951, 1953) became Italian cyclocross champion.

His relationship with the Giro d’Italia is different and particular: having arrived last, not by will, at a stage of the 1946 edition, the first since the end of the war, he realizes that after the winner he is the last to receive attention , offerings of money, food and other gifts. These are the years of dualism between Bartali and Coppi, it is difficult to win, Luisìn then does the opposite, he takes action to get to the end, but it is certainly not easy, in the Giro d’Italia.

You have to act with cunning and precision, with two watches on your wrist so as not to make mistakes or delay too long and be disqualified. Thus was born the story of the Maglia Nera, the legend of Luigi Malabrocca, told in a book, in a theater show and in a graphic novel:

“Malabrocca – A lonely man.. at the bottom” by Roberto Lauciello (Renoir Comics 2019)
“When the last one won” with Riccardo Ballerini (text and direction by Massimiliano Gracili)

We thank Serena Malabrocca for her collaboration and the historical archive.
