Description: Giovanni 'Nani' Pinarello, born in 1922, was one of a whole generation of athletes from child-rich families who chose a career in cycling. In the era of Coppi, Bartali and Bobet, he was quite a successful amateur rider with loads of won races. This eventually earned him a contract as professional rider.
The year of 1953 then saw him making his dream come true, by using money, which he got as a compensation for handing over his starting place in the Giro, for the setup of a bicycle shop and manufacture in his hometown Treviso.
From then on Pinarello bikes became more and more famous, more and more refined.
