The advert reads The NEW Beriano Racing Frame.......Get to know more about this exceptional new frame made exclusively for us by Faliero Masi...Made only to order. The business in London is called Beriano, they seem also to import the Silca pump. There is a reprint from "the Italian Journal Ruote" Masi is described as "meccanico di fiducia di Fiorenzo Magni" and as "l'abile artigiano fiorentino" I am presuming that this means that Masi was born in Florence? It is my recollection that Masi had zero recognition at that time in the UK and I suspect that the Beriano business did not prosper. Ray Green, Brighton, England
