Cycling Museum celebrated its 12 years of activity on October 14th, 2018. From 4th November it closed for the usual winter break, to reopen on March 2nd, 2019 even more fit and ready to celebrate the Centenary of Fausto Coppi’s birth and many other things!
Founded by Fiorenzo Magni with the initial contribution of the Lombardy Region, La Gazzetta dello Sport and other private sponsors, the Cyclcing Museum at the Ghisallo Pass today is perhaps among the most famous cycling museums in the world, more than 11,000 visitors during 2018 (statistics data updated to the end of September 2018), from 66 countries, 55 % Italians and 45% foreigners: important results that make us understand how Ghisallo is in good shape, a museum that lives “epic” days coinciding with the arrival of champions or some special events.
The great closure was in fact on Sunday 28 October 2018 with VIGORELLI – GHISALLO # 4 which saw the team Velodromo Vigorelli Committee, the Madonna del Ghisallo Cycling Museum, Upcycle – Milano Bike Café, with the support of Titici (main sponsor) and the collaboration of Faema, organized despite the flood a classic amateur at the end of the season that combines the two monuments of Italian cycling. A great success for an epic edition to say the least. Then, broadcast on Raisport on the occasion of Radiocorsa which dedicated almost a whole episode to the Museum.
@MUSEOGHISALLO thanks | All events at the Ghisallo Museum of Magreglio (Como) are realized thanks to the support of the official sponsors of the Museum: Alcar Italia, Valsecchi Armamenti Ferroviari and MUMAC – Cimbali Museum of Coffee Machine. And among the brands, Faema, who straddled the world of cycling between the ’60s and’ 70s, taking one of the first sports sponsorships and giving rise to a legendary binomial that has been imprinted in the memory of more than one generation thanks the successes and achievements of champions such as Eddie Merckx, Vittorio Adorni and Hendrick Van Looy.
