“Bicicletto” bicycle

There are cycling itineraries dedicated to Giacomo Puccini, because the Maestro, as a lover of modern things and new inventions, had  a passion for cycling or rather, for the "bicicletto", as he used to call it.

"I warn you, I bought a bicycle “bicicletto”!" we read in a letter written to a friend in 1893. He wanted to lose weight... As he wrote "the very indecent belly, since it weighs more than a ton".

Puccini became more and more familiar with cycling and even participated in some races.

The province of Lucca offers numerous events organized for cycling, as the Cicloclassica organized in the places dear to Giacomo Puccini to guided cycling tours around the Garfagnana villages.
