Happy Birthday Ernesto Colnago, 79
Happy Birthday to Ernesto Colnago who is celebrating 79 years today. One of ICJ's readers visited with Ernesto in January (above), Ernesto still looking very well. Today, Ernesto was busy receiving good wishes but too busy to talk too long as "il futuro non aspetta."
My thanks to reader Guido for also pointing out that Cino Cinelli was also born on 9 February, in 1916.
