Just Pinzani was one of the most important canvassers and master craftsmen from Florence. His shop in Via Gioberti No. 85 in Florence has been a point of reference and a place of aggregation for generations of enthusiasts for decades.
He was born in Pelago on November 19, 1897 and began to cultivate the passion of the bike from an early age. After the Great War he was born to learn the art of bicycle making and, to cultivate this passion, he became an apprentice in the workshop of a mechanic. After a couple of years of apprenticeship and having raised some money, he opened his own shop.
Pinzani has always had a soft spot for cycling. As early as the late 1920s, the Florentine cyclist Umberto Berni participated in the Tour de France as an "isolated", that is, without a team, with his Pinzani bike. This passion embraced the whole family from the 1930s until the 1960s, so much so that Pinzani sponsored the amateur sports and cycling club of the Oltrarno, of which he was also president for more than ten years.
Many young Florentine cyclists have competed for him or his bicycles. Among the best known is gastone Nencini, winner of a Giro d'Italia in 1957 and the Tour de France in 1960.
The Pinzani bikes are recognizable thanks to its brand "PINZANI" (with the Elongated P taking its cue from the most famous Pirelli brand) and for their typical classic celestial livery embellished with black flames bordered with red along the central tubes of the frame. Other colors may be gray (especially for racing bikes used by the guys of the racing team), green and orange (especially since the seventies).
