Faliero Masi, and now his son Alberto, are an intrinsic part of the Italian romance with racing bicycles. Although never the sponsor of a major Pro team, Masi has been whispered to be the preferred builder for many stars in the Pro peloton. In the original workshop beneath the famous Vigorelli velodrome, the Masi family has produced sought after bicycles for 50 years. At the Vigorelli, Faliero's torch was Dicimo Merlo, who worked from the beginning of the marque in 1946 until his death in the mid-1960s. Masi would finish the frames made at the Vigorelli that Dicimo brazed. Later, many contractors supplied their services, but the design and quality control remained under the strict oversight of the Masi men.
