Museum: Bottega Museo di Ranieri Rossi, Cicli f.lli Rossi
The Bottega Museo di Ranieri Rossi, Cicli f.lli Rossi, is a private collection but that is open to the public. The museum is located at Via Roma,1 in Siena. It was here that the three Rossi brothers, Eugenio, Martino and Ranieri ran the workshop and sold bicycles since 1935 (along with their first location between Via Camollia and Via Campansi). The museum is the passion of Stelio Rossi, son of Ranieri Rossi.
The small museum contains diligently preserved equipment, tools, bicycles, parts and accessories. The collection also includes a substantial collection of books and vintage magazines.
Reservations for the museum can be made by calling 349 5263212 or by email (see address in photo).
This museum will be added to the CYCLING MUSEUMS IN ITALY article.
