Fausto Coppi Bronze

In researching details of the upcoming Italian national championships on the Federazione Ciclistica Italiana (Italian cycling federation) website I discovered that the FCI has this bronze sculpture of Fausto Coppi listed for sale at 6,000 euro (six thousand euro).

The bronze measures  18 x 48 H, and is one of a series. Click on image to enlarge.

In October, 2009, one was placed at the mausoleum of Fausto Coppi in Castellania by his daughter Marina.
