At the age of 13 Ernesto Colnago, in order to work at the Gloria bicycle factory in Milan as a welder, changed the date of birth on the documents: he didn't have the legal age for working.
His extraordinary skills were discovered almost by chance by Fiorenzo Magni, who made him his official mechanic at the Giro d'Italia.
From there on, it is a continuous ascent driven by great intuitions and amazing creations.
