L'ARTE DI PERDERE
L’Arte di Perdere - The Art of Losing; the design behind the 2019 edition of the Santini Maglia Nera all started from this one phrase, neatly summing up the legend linked to this very special jersey. The design incorporates two specific graphic elements, the stylized background image, adapted from a photo of the Passo del Gavia, the Cima Coppi of this year’s Giro d’Italia and the geometric text pattern repeating the word NERA. Additionally the small white star on the left sleeve of the jersey is linked to the figure whom the original concept of the Maglia Nera was based, Giovanni Ticcozzelli. The star is taken from the crest of the professional football team Casale, who he played with through the 1920’s. During his ill fated and only attempt at competing at the Giro in 1926, Tico wore his teams football jersey instead of a cycling jersey, all black with the white star.
