Italian memories is an illustration set about some of my favourite Italian Icons.
The first item I worked on is the timeless “Bianchi – L’Eroica”, a famous road bike.
The founders of the L’Eroica ride—an homage to cycling’s romantic past, which requires participants to use pre-1987 bike technology and has become so popular that what began in Tuscany 17 years ago with 92 riders now draws tens of thousands in a growing lineup of countries that already includes Japan, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States—describe their event “a poem written with a bicycle.” – from bicycling.com
The second icon I worked on is the Fiat 500, which is one of my favourite car ever. It reminds me a lot of my home country and my family.
The Fiat 500 (Italian: Cinquecento, pronounced [ˌtʃiŋkweˈtʃɛnto]) is a rear-engined, four-seat, small city car that was manufactured and marketed by Fiat Automobiles from 1957 to 1975 over a single generation in two-door saloon and two-door station wagon body-styles. Launched as the Nuova (new) 500 in July 1957, as a successor to the 500 “Topolino”, it was an inexpensive and practical small car. – from Wikipedia.org
