Museo del Ciclismo Gino Bartali, Florencie - Italy
The “Gino Bartali” Cycling Museum is located in Florence in via Chiantigiana, near Ponte a Ema, and was opened in April 2006. The museum is dedicated to cycling lovers and to the fans of Gino Bartali, born right here in 1914.
The first room is in fact a tribute to the great champion, nicknamed “Ginettaccio,” cyclist and serviceman who won three Giri d’Italia, two Tour de France and other trophies in the 1930s and 40s. The second room is about other renowned cyclists, with their biographies and various jerseys. The third room is home to period bicycles from the 1800s to the mid-1900s, including those used by champions such as Fausto Coppi and Giuseppe Olmo. Most of the objects on display were donated by cycling enthusiasts and associations.
