Saturday 4 March 2023 the season of the Madonna del Ghisallo Cycling Museum in Magreglio starts again and on Sunday 5 the first event is already taking place with the participation of the great champion Giuseppe Saronni and Beppe Conti who presents a new book!

Passo del Ghisallo, Magreglio, CO – With a literary shot, beautiful and powerful like that world champion and winning shot by Beppe Saronni, the unforgettable Italian champion, the Madonna del Ghisallo Cycling Museum is reopening for the 2023 season.

On Saturday 4 March, the excitement of the memorabilia begins again, in a museum itinerary that is renewed from month to month, the largest cycling museum in the world not dedicated to a champion but to all cyclists. As its founder Fiorenzo Magni wanted.

It starts with its first event scheduled for Sunday 5 March at 17.00 which offers an opening of the season that returns to pedaling in the iris of a champion in the blue jersey with the presentation of the book by Bebbe Conti “Saronni. Goodwood and the other truths”: the Museum will in fact host the world champion Giuseppe Saronni interviewed by the journalist Beppe Conti. The meeting will be an opportunity to talk about the victory at Goodwood and present a book that explores other truths and anecdotes from the career of the great Italian champion.

The month of March will be dedicated to Milano Sanremo with Saturday 18 March, when the Museum turns on the Live TV of the race visible inside the exhibition space, and Sunday 19 March sees the presentation of the book “Era mio nonno”. Learco Guerra talks about Learco Guerra “The Human Locomotive” on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of Learco Guerra’s victory at the Milan – Sanremo.

The Museum reopens with a busy calendar of 2023 activities that proposes the last year of planning with “Interreg”, aimed at promoting tourism in the area, a project that will stage the organization of bike outings called “Mulm_Guided bike tours” with visit to the museum. Every first weekend of the month, from April, the streets of Ghisallo come alive again thanks to this project. April will also be the month of the Northern Classics with scheduled meetings with champions and enthusiasts.

The museum year will be dedicated to some focuses related to great champions of modern cycling such as the “Record Ghisallo” event which will focus on the bikes of Filippo Ganna’s hour record on display at the Ghisallo Museum. A “Museo del Ghisallo Game Day” will be set up for the youngest, underlining the Museum’s propensity to involve the youngest with educational and playful experiences that enhance the history of cycling and its champions in a context of natural beauty and shared values of sports.

In July, on the occasion of the 110th edition of the Tour de France, the Ghisallo museum will turn yellow with a temporary exhibition dedicated to the Italian champions who have worn the coveted jersey of the winners of the Grande Boucle.

In September the museum will then host the exhibition dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the “Tre Valli Varesine” with a special of the editions whose route also included the passage on Colle del Ghisallo.

Also this year they will cycle alongside the Ghisallo Museum:

MUMAC Cimbali Group Coffee Machine Museum, since 2015 official sponsor of the Cycling Museum – Madonna del Ghisallo: a collaboration between museums that draws a line of continuity between the world of cycling and the world of Faema, the historic Cimbali Group brand!

Ambrogio Molteni Foundation, with which the Museum shares the love and memory of the history of cycling

The Municipality of Magreglio and the Municipality of Bellagio and the Gal del Lago di Como alongside the museum with the common goal of promoting tourism in our wonderful area
