During May, the scent of Rosa Giro is detected inside and out the Museum.
Thanks to the travelling and temporary exhibitions that fuel the passion of everyone for cycling memorabilias.
If you visit the Ghisallo Cycling Museum in May the passion and and the scent of success for the big Italian race will capture your head and heart, more than ever. You can feel the Giro everywhere when visiting the Museum, which also tell the story of the Giro d’Italia
In Magreglio (Como) the Giro d’Italia Pink jerseys collection – the showpiece dedicated to all cyclists, and not just one champion – towers in the Museum collection. A collection organized in collaboration with RCS La Gazzetta dello Sport, a breathtaking wall, with the most important Pink Jerseys collection in the world, hosting 65.
The Pink Jerseys of the Museum collection live all together all year long, except for May when some pieces leave on lease, all because we’re in the month of the Giro. This is why, for example, 1991 Chioccioli’s Pink Jersey, Rominger’s 1995 one, the Magni won in 1955, Salvodelli 2006 jersey and Gianni Bugno’s 1990 one, as well as some champions’ bycicles, are temporary leased in Seregno, from May 13th to the 19th. From the city will leave a stage, the one arriving in Bergamo on the 21st of May. The temporary exhibition will be held at the Banco BPM in Via Montello, 1/A,, and is accessibile free of charge during the opening hours (8.20 -13.20 / 14.30 – 16.30).
The Giro d’Italia touched Seregno the last time in 1960, 63 years ago. It was an unforgettable stage, in which Anquetil regained the Pink Jersey, ruling the timed race of Brainza, leaving from the historic factory Italsilva of Seregno and arriving in Lecco. For this stage we can remember the streets full of people, ready to assist to one of the greatest timed races of all times.
The Ghisallo in Giro is alsoDesign “in giro”, a temporary cycling museum that on May 20th and 21st, will be viewable at POL 74 in Seregno (via Briantina, 68), a sixty years long leader in the production of sofa beds. Inside their showroom wil be set up an exhibition itinerary, following design, cycling and historic films. The exhibition, of admission (opening hours 9.30-18.00), is realized in collaboration with our Ghisallo Cycling Museum, withAssociazione Giacinto Santambrogio Asd as well as different private collections. Thanks to all the collaborations it will be possibile to see the bikes, the jerseys and the most iconic champions pictures that made the history of the Pink Race.
In the end, if you go to the Giro d’Italia you will find the scent of the Ghisallo Cycling Museum, that follows the Carovana: a Museum that becomes pink because it will be present to the village of the Pink Race. In the village will be exhposed the Garibaldi’s jerseys and historic edition, leader of the Giro (edition of 1949, 1951, 1955, 1961, 2007).
Following the Giro this year will parade till the end of the race a series of pink jerseys: the one won by Fiorenzo Magni, Giro d’Italia 1951, Eddy Merckx one’s, Giro d’Italia 1968, as well as Roberto Visentini’s jearsy, Giro d’Italia 1986, and Andrew Hampsten’s one, Giro d’Italia 1988.
“Let’s tell the truth – explains Ghisallo Cyicling Museum President Antonio Molteni – we don’t give our memorabilias away lightheartedly But the May exception is lived peacefully, beacuse we’ve always been great allies of the Giro d’Italia and of his memories. We consider this temporary exhibitions a great way to promote our Museum and to fuel the passion of people for cycling. A passion that we will forever nurture, always trying to be a team with the Pink Race organizers, just like our founder Fiorenzo Magni wanted.”
