Collezione velocipedi e biciclette antiche A. & C. Azzini, Soresina, Italy
We had the opportunity to personally walk through the entire museum accompanied by both owners in 2022. It was a huge pleasure to see not only a cross-section of the bike's development, but entire blocks dedicated to local brands. This is what a museum should look like! This is the reason why collectors from all over the world will come and discover new and unknown technical treasures here. Their museum and exhibits are fantastic. The beautiful philosophy and attitude towards collecting is convincing. Alfredo and Carlo Azzini say: “We paid great attention to the conservation and restoration carried out in our restoration center. We study every detail, every difference. During many years of passionate research, we were guided by only one consciousness: although we are now the momentary owners of these treasures, our mission is only and exclusively one idea: to preserve and protect them and finally leave them to future generations with full respect for bicycle history."
