For those who participate in L´Eroica, Luciano Berruti is certainly a known face.
Luciano Berruti is an Italian 71 years old cyclist with a life-time passion for classic and vintage bicycles. Everything started when he was a child and after a decade in competitions, Luciano started to collect vintage cycles and opened in 2010 one of the most beautiful museums for classic cycling.
Find more about his Museo della Bicicletta in Cosseria (Savona, Italy) here.
We had the privilege to meet him personally at L´Eroica 2014. Luciano dropped by our booth at the vintage market and started chatting with us.
We already knew him, or at least his face like everybody who takes part in L´Eroica. It is impossibile not to recognise him: a nice face behind retro mustache, old-style cycling apparel and his inseparable bicycle from the 1930s.
Luciano Berruti is a true friendly and humble man. We were impressed by his spontaneousness and enthusiasm while talking to us and asking about our projects. The time flew listening to his stories and anecdotes and we said good-bye to Luciano giving him some souvenirs, as our poster and calendar.
We definitely want to visit him at his classic cycling museum in Italy, where he also took some pictures with our poster!!! It is a honor for Steel Vintage Bikes...
Thanks again Luciano!
