Gino Bartali (Ponte a Ema, July 18 1914, Firenze -Florence- May 5 2000)
Gino Bartali has been one of the most famous Italian road cyclists. He won three Giri d’Italia (Tour of Italy) in 1936-1937-1946 and two Tours of France (1938-1948). His professional career lasted from 1934 to 1954.
His rivalry with Fausto Coppi, another Italian cyclist, was legendary and anyway chivalric; Italians were divided in Bartali and Coppi fans. No one of them ever revealed whichever of the two gave a canteen to the other, in a famous image of a Tour of France.
He was the typical “Toscanaccio” (badass Tuscan guy): he was hard-faced, caustic and irreverent as every good Tuscan behaves.
He never revealed his little role in the Italian resistance during the Nazi occupation of Italy (1943/1945): as he was already famous, he could train in Central Italy roads without any control by Germans and Italian Fascist troopers, so he could carry secret dispatches and fake documents for Italian partisans. Moreover, he hid a Jewish family in his cellar, avoiding them the deportation in Germany. His feats were discovered only after his death. In 2013 Yad Vashem recognized Gino Bartali the title of Righteous Among the Nations.

No ok non ho alcun brivido lungo la schiena e le braccia no.
Comunque quella è la canzone che Pipino cantava a Denethor. Nessun brivido nono.
