This year’s annual Christmas mass held at Colnago’s headquarters in Cambia, Italy, honored cycling legend Fiorenzo Magni, with the company’s Patriarch himself, Ernesto Colnago, overseeing the blessing.
Magni’s daughter, Tiziana, was in attendance, flanked by cycling greats, Gianni Motta, Giuseppe Saronni, Felice Gimondi and Paolo Savoldelli.
“I owe everything to this man,” added Colnago. “I started with him and I learned so much from this man that I consider simply outstanding. Today I remember him with affection.” Lapidary and poignant commentary was also given at the event by the great football coach, Fabio Capello: “It’s good that you remember the great people who have contributed to the greatness of Italy and Italian sports. Ours is a country with a short memory, fortunately Ernesto has not only gratitude but also memory.”
