Alongside cycling, Corrado was too in fact a history fanatic, and took particular interest in the period from Napoleon to the Second World War, making miniatures of the protagonists of those events.
His love for the past, paired with sport soon led him to be passionate about the world of cycling in another light, focusing on historical bicycles and the woolen jerseys of epic cycling.
Exploring this in his craft, his childhood experience of the “Domenica Sportiva” returned to the surface and he began looking for information on miniatures, models, toys… Much like I had done before ending up with his phone number in my hand.
In 2011, Corrado discovered a craftsman in France who made neutral miniatures of cyclists.
He purchased a dozen and began to paint them.
In Parma, at a lunch for an association for historical cycling, Corrado took with him his models and upon showing them to his fellow diners, realised their enthusiasm for the crafts.
At that time Corrado was a surveyor, but with his passion and others interest, he left his job in 2012 and since then hasn’t looked back. Receiving orders from collectors, enthusiasts, fans, and excitingly, relatives of riders including; Elia Viviani’s Mother, Letizia Paternoster’s Mother, Paternoster’s Son, Giuseppe Martinelli’s son, and Mother of the Bonifazio brothers.
