In 1952, Giovanni prepares to ride the Giro d’ Italia gain, but at the very last moment, he is required to give his spot to the young Pasqualino Fornara, who had just beenfired from the Fausto Coppi’s Team Bianchi.

Giovanni is disappointed, but his team offers 100,000 pounds to set aside, a considerable sum of money for those times. This money is used to bear the fruit of what shall be the crown of this his dreams: opening a small bike workshop in order to build his own bicycles. We are now in 1953 in Treviso and Cicli Pinarello is born.
