Framebuilder of the week
getting to know the people that make the bikes


This feature offers the opportunity to learn more about exhibitors’ individual style and inspirations, as well as giving an insight into their behind the scenes preparation for Bespoked 2016.

1. Do you remember your first bike?

When I was 15 years old I had my first bike, I personally prepared it, AND started with my career as cyclist and at the age of 23 years I became a professional cyclist. My big desire to begin this adventure in 1992 after the end of my career was to build frames but only in titanium to make the difference from others.

3. How would you define your style as a framebuilder?

When I started in 1992 titanium was considered a strategic material used only for aerospace and aeronautical. it was not easy to start from the beginning, both concerning the knowledge of the raw material, even regarding the availability of the material itself. But difficulties do not scare me, like during the Giro D'Italia in 1988 the Passo Gavia stage, when the snow was the queen of the day and I arrived exhausted at the end ninth but very happy and led me important memories.

4. Who or what has inspired you along the way?

I was supported by engineers and experts of titanium world and technological systems and so I could understand that titanium must be treated as a precious metal and I had to build tools for titanium machining.

5. What can we expect to see from you at Bespoked 2016?

To remember my eighties as a professional cyclist I wanted to reproduce the frame but with the technology of nowadays so I built a vintage frame with a 1979 Record Campagnolo groupset and a nowadays road bicycle with disc brake.

6. Where is your favourite place to ride?

I usually like to ride on Alps because we are lucky to live near mountains, so when I have enough time I ride Crocedomini or Passo del Vivione


and finally…

7. If you weren’t building bikes for a living what would you be?

I have never though about another job because my aim was to work in bicycle world.
