Milano-Roma pitted intrepid riders, both professional and amateur, against one another on a challenging parcours between two of Italy’s great cities. Our eponymous collection incorporates a striking two-tone colour palette reminiscent of the unique aesthetic of both cities.
Typical of bicycle races in the early 20th century, the Milano-Roma featured arduously long stages. The 666-kilometre route between Milan and Rome was contested in just two, taking in iconic cities such as Florence and Bologna as well as two mountain passes en route.
Run only twice, in 1906 and 1918, Milano-Roma was dominated by one man. Italian Carlo Galetti clinched victory in the general classification of both editions despite the twelve years and devastating period of war that separated them.

Milano-Roma Merino Wool Roll Neck
By the time the 1918 edition of the race had concluded, the prevailing art movements of the period – futurism and cubism – had profused from Paris across Europe. They were a major design inspiration for our collection and manifest themselves in the triangular knitted design and button-down chest pocket on the Wool Roll Neck.Buy now
