Casa delle "bici volanti"


In the hamlet of San Giovanni a Bellagio the carpenter Ivan Gilardoni, fond of vintage bikes, has transformed his house into a tourist attraction, hanging the so-called “flying bikes” on the facade.

Ivan personally arranges the bicycles making a conservative restoration to preserve the charm of the two vintage rote.

Over the years, the collection has been enriched and the bicycles are almost one hundred, bought at markets and fairs or even recovered from landfills. There is no lack of historical pieces in the collection, a Bianchi racing bike, the vehicle used in the past by firefighters, the Milanese sweeper and even the two-wheeler of the Swiss army.

The house is located in the hamlet of San Giovanni. The hamlet is located 2 km south-west of the historical centre of Bellagio.
