ANNIVERSARIES AT THE MUSEUM: 60 YEARS SINCE FAUSTO COPPI'S DEATH

The second of the anniversaries is dedicated to the sixtieth anniversary of the death of Fausto Coppi.
Many visitors and sportsmen intervened in the multimedia rooms of the Museum where - in the section "The great protagonists of history" - videos, images and documents of the great runner are available.
60 years have passed since January 2, 1960, when following a malaria contracted in Africa during a race, Fausto Coppi died. Yet his myth has not only remained intact, but is constantly growing. A life spanning 40 years, of which 20 years spent winning and becoming one of the greatest and most popular cyclists of all time.
Coppi has become the inspiration of songs ("It comes from fatigue and dirt roads .... here with us five times then twice in France for the world four times against the wind two mild eyes and a nose that divides the wind", so sings Gino Paoli), countless books, films, radio commentaries that are part of the collective imagination ("One man is in command; his shirt is white-blue; his name is Fausto Coppi" by Mario Ferretti) all material which has entered by law into the knowledge and awareness of sports lovers, but not only. In short, a timeless myth.
Legendary was his rivalry with Gino Bartali, who divided Italy in the immediate post-war period: the photo depicting the two champions was celebrated while passing a bottle during the Col du Galibier climb to the 1952 Tour. Over 150 races were won. Thirty-one days in pink jersey at the Giro d'Italia, 19 in yellow of the Tour de France. In the Giro he won twenty-two stages, in the Tour nine

In all the turning points and policies of the Socialist Party, from 1922 to 1969, there is its mark. History of a leader with few equals in the history of this country: socialist, Jacobin and statesman. Rarely has a party identified itself as its leader, as happened to the PSI with Pietro Nenni.

And today, January 1, 2020, the fortieth anniversary of his death, which took place on the night between December 31, 1979 and January 1, 1980, falls, the politician who most wanted and fought for the Republic.
