My poster for the Bicycle Film Festival CICLI ILLUSTRI exhibition in Milan, 13/15 december 2013.
The Bicycle Film Festival is an international film festival that celebrates the bikes through film, art and music.
The text in my print is from an italian song by Paolo Conte that honors Gino Bartali, a legendary cyclist of the past. The songwriter is so passionate about Bartali that ironically refuses to take his partner to the movies until the bike race is not done.
But bicycle and cinema, two worlds apparently distant, nowadays go beautifully together during Bicycle Film Festival so I thought this would be a funny way to celebrate both!
