Artist Riccardo Guasco Commissioned to Create Illustrations for Giro d’Italia Hall of Fame

Riccardo Guasco was recently commissioned to create illustrations for the Giro d’Italia Hall of Fame, regaling such winners of the Italian Grand Tour as Eddy Merckx, Felice Gimondi, Stephen Roche, Francesco Moser, Ercole Baldini, Bernard Hinault, Vittorio Adorni, Gianni Motta and Miguel Indurain.

Merckx was the first luminary to be inducted into the newly create Giro d’Italia Hall of Fame in 2012, followed by Felice Gimondi in 2015. 

To commemorate all of the inductees, the race’s organizer, Gazzetta dello Sport, commissioned Guasco to create a series of illustrations that celebrate the race’s protagonists in the likeness of the Italian artist’s Art Deco-esque style.
