Did Ernesto Colnago work for Masi? Those Gentleman where friends and did many projects thruout thier careers together including grooming Mario Confente to be the Icon of builders.
The last contact I had with Ernesto was Nearly 25 Years ago so my memory is dim.
I do believe that Ernesto worked under Faliero at one time or at least gained his mentorship.
Ernesto is a wonderful intellegent man and deserves a Magnum of respect.
