Exhibitions, The Tour of Italy and the champions that made history

Museo Nicolis pays tribute to the Giro d’Italia, the Tour of Italy multiple-stage cycling race through its unmissable collection of bicycles

For more than 100 years, the Tour of Italy cycling race has been telling the story of our country and its transformations through the feats of legendary champions: Ganna, Girardengo, Binda, Brunero, Coppi, Bartali, Gimondi, Magni, Merckx, Moser, Saronni and Pantani, just some of the names that have made this sport, with all its sweat, fatigue and memorable victories, so very popular and unforgettable.

Museo Nicolis pays tribute to the Giro d’Italia, the Tour of Italy multiple-stage cycling race through its unmissable collection of bicycles with four valuable examples on display, introducing visitors to the Museum’s heritage and accompanying them on an exciting historical itinerary, led by key personalities whose efforts made them into national prodigies: Luigi Ganna, Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi, the legendary figures who embodied the dreams and enthusiasm of an entire country.

The exhibition starts with Luigi Ganna, winner of the first Tour of Italy, followed by the incredible Gino Bartali, known as big-hearted “Ginettaccio”, and then on to the eternal rival, Fausto Coppi, the “Super Champion”, who won five Tours.

Through unique masterpieces, we will retrace the everlasting appeal of the bicycle and the Tour of Italy in search of a country united by sport and an enormous passion: cycling and its champions.
