Description


This fine art reproduction poster shows the first of the great Italian Campanissimo, Constante Girardengo, Italy`s dominant road rider from 1913 through the 1920s. The Italian National champion an unprecedented nine times, including seven years in a row.

Wonderfully capturing the emotion of this great rider, showing the elegant Italian National Champion jersey, short legged shorts, and very simple bicycle - Cicli Maino was one of the original manufacturers of bicycles in Italy - harken back to a very romantic time in cycling`s history.

Featuring Italy`s earliest grand champion, Constante Girardengo, celebrating yet another race victory on his Maino bicycle, it captures the glory of the beloved Campanissimo, the style and equipment of the day, and some great art deco graphic design. This is both a historic work of vintage cycling art, and a beautiful piece for the wall of home or office!

Reproduced from the original in The Horton Collection.

Printed on gallery quality poster stock with a satin finish. During the creation of these posters each image was carefully monitored for correct color balance and printed on heavyweight paper stock using high quality presses, all to insure they will look good for years to come.
