That of Biagio Cavanna, the first cycling school in Italy, a college built between Pozzolo Formigaro and Novi Ligure, to train thoroughbred runners: powerful brave indefatigable, each in its own way against each other, but all united for a single goal: win all the prizes, win that Coppa Italia, team time trial almost a diploma issued by the brilliant massager orbo, to aspire to the final role of Gregario of Fausto Coppi. And to be part of the myth together.
The visit to the museum offers an introduction to the world of cycling, drawing the attention of the children to interesting objects or documents in view of the laboratory activity chosen by the teacher for the students. The work then continues in a special space dedicated to children; every time to see, listen, think, do, starting from the comparison of objects, newspapers, photographers and, appropriately selected films, and listening to oral testimonies that the museum possesses. In the laboratory there is a way – among other things – to know and decipher words and expressions of cycling jargon, a sign of an environment that for at least a century has distinguished itself in society and in the world of sport.
