If You Are Near Pistoia...


......you will have to stop in the town of Buggiano at the gelateria "Ultimo Kilometro" (Last Kilometer). Here you will find Paolo Fornaciari, the owner, who during his career was a gregario (domestique) for Cipollini, Bettini, Bartoli and Cunego.


Although he only won one stage during his career (1994 Herald Sun Tour in Australia) he recently became a champion in the gelato championships in Rimini.

The address of the gelateria is Via Pistoiese 108/, Buggiano
