The inception of the "Cambio a Bacchetta" – the Italian for rod-operated gearing – dates back to 1930, when Tullio Campagnolo patented the quick release for the rear wheel, so called "Galletto Automatico" in Italian.

Luciano Berruti was a man from a bygone era, when the joy of cycling was earned through fatigue and sweat. He was able to spread his passion in his every single word, gesture and smile. A passion which culminated in the "Museo della Bicicletta di Cosseria", where cycles from the 19th Century, professional racing bicycles, rare pieces of the cycling history – even an exercise bike belonged to the Princess Sissy – are keepers of many anecdotes which Luciano was always keen...
