Fausto Pinarello also known as ‘FP’
Fausto Pinarello, son of Giovanni begins working in his father’s factory at the tender age of 17. As they say here in Treviso, he began to immediately breathe “Pane e Copertoni" (Bread and Tires).
Fausto is initially placed in the most difficult step of the production chain, the painting division. It is most likely here he developed the passion for ‘beauty’ in each and every one of his bikes.
In the early years, Fausto lives in the shadow of his father learning the secrets of the trade by watching and learning and at the same time developing entrepreneurial skills, insights into decision making processes and managing the business as a whole.
