As is often the case, cyclists like to go out early in the morning. 

That night we arrived with our van full of bicycles in one of the historic hotels in Bormio

Coming to Italy from abroad with your own bike is not really a comfortable thing.

That’s why so many people contact Veloce, because we deliver quality full carbon bike rentals to the hotel whenever you want, wherever you want in 16 European countries. 


A group of cyclists came from Israel to climb one of the most fascinating mountain passes in Italy. The Stelvio! 

Our photo shows one of the most exciting moments for those who go cycling (after dressing): pedals installation, measurement setting, inflating the tires and then the first small ride to check the bike before leaving early in the morning to climb the second highest peak in Europe.

How much work is behind a glass of Brunello di Montalcino wine?

This is the first video in a long series in which Gennaro de Concilio, CEO at Veloce and Co-Founder at Squisito tells with sustainable farmers the curiosities, the hard work and the added value of their non-industrial production, our Italianness, our heritage to be preserved.

A return to simplicity, to the enhancement of the Italian territory.


In the last 10 years with Veloce we have had the privilege to explore 90% of the Italian country and to met thousands of people, many producers, each one with a personal story.

We want to tell these and share their stories on Squisito channels. 

In this video we discover  L 'Aietta winery by Francesco Mulinari who produces an excellent Rosso di Montalcino, Spumante di Sangiovese, an exceptional white and a magnificent Brunello di Montalcino, defending the heritage, the biodiversity, and the old way to do wine (as for example using horses in agriculture or goose to naturally cut green). 

In this video Francesco tells how he defends the biodiversity of the places and how he treats his vineyards in the most natural way possible to produce an exclusive red wine. 

The video is subtitled in Italian and English languages with English subtitles.

Enjoy!

Some stages in Campania region, southern Italy was particularly interesting, like the visit at the Nola village, close Naples and at the Aqueduct of Vanvitelli (Caroline Aqueduct).


One of our characteristics is the true knowledge of the territories. 

Why this places was particularly interesting? 
Because Gennaro de Concilio, founder at Veloce, was born in Naples and had the opportunity to live this places when was young. 

Many memories but above all a great artistic and cultural value.

Aqueduct of Vanvitelli (Caroline Aqueduct) 

Aqueduct of Vanvitelli is a massive Aqueduct located close Maddaloni village and is the aqueduct built by Luigi Vanvitelli under commission by Charles of Bourbon, to supply water to the Royal Palace of Caserta and to the San Leucio complex. 

The water is picked up from the foot of Taburno massif close Benevento and moved for 38 km route (mostly underground).

The section of the aqueduct shown in the photo was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 and (modelled on ancient Roman aqueducts) is made of three rows of arches, 55.8 metres (183 ft) high at its highest point.

NOLA VILLAGE - Lilies Festival World Heritage Unesco 

One of our memories related to this village is the feast of the "Lilies of Nola".

The Feast of Lilies is a popular Catholic festival held every year in Nola on the occasion of the patronal holiday dedicated to Saint Pauline. 

With this event the Nolans remember the return to the city of Ponzio Meropio Paolino from captivity by the barbarians occurred in the first half of the fifth century. 

The festival is part of the Network of the great Italian shoulder machines inserted since December 2013 in the Oral and Intangible World Heritage of UNESCO.

Gennaro de Concilio, the founder at Veloce had the opportunity to photograph this festival, below some impressive photographies of carftmade shoulder machines who are carried by local people since the morning, all night long accompanied by a melodic live music played by the band on the shoulder machine.

The shoulder machines are moved by local people dancing to the sound of music, in the alleys of the village to the main square at the San Paolino cathedral. 

«I was told in Naples about the feast of San Paolino in Nola and I was also assured that it deserved to be seen. I had just entered Nola, which struck me with a strange sight, of which I had no idea and which made me doubt that I was in the Indies, or in Japan, rather than in Italy, in Campania. I saw a kind of tower, high, thin, all adorned with red paper, gilding, silver friezes, carried on the shoulders by men. It was divided into five orders, with floors, columns, decorated with frontispieces, arches, frames, niches, figures and covered on both sides with numerous flags. Then every tower in front of the cathedral began a strange show, as each of those great piers was dancing to the sound of music. A man with a staff went before the porters, who beat the time, and the towers followed him. The colossus oscillated and seemed at every moment that he wanted to lose balance and fall; all the figures moved, the flags waved; it was a fantastic glance.»
