Frosinone, Giovanni Brunnero and the epic of cycling

Everything comes from the passion of me Travel and bike magazines. It is the idea of ​​putting online photos on their YouTube channel.
scammer Paolo Forni, with a short film dedicated to 1920s cycling champion Giovanni Brunnero, has been selected for the finalist of Sports Films and Television, the Sports Film and Television Festival, now in its 40th edition, taking place in Milan through November 13. The awards ceremony is scheduled to take place on Sunday, and the winning short films will be announced.

The Short film “Giovanni Brunnero 1922-2022” It was produced by the Italian velocipedistic association Nova with direction and editing by Furnò. Music by New York artist Chris Zabriskie. Work sponsored by the municipality of Siré (to). The nomination for the festival, which marked the end of the genre, was a surprise. There are, in fact, 140 competing jobs.

«The idea was born between the historical renovations that we are doing – the author explains – there is the re-enactment part, with sports activity and there is the hero’s family, with his grandson. Among other things, when Brunero retired from racing, Agnelli gave him the privilege to sell a Fiat. Since then, the family business is still standing, even if they are now selling boat engines ».

A work that also benefited from the memory cult of Brunnero located in Siri, the hero’s birthplace in the province of Turin. The archive has been digitized, and there is a sports collection that references Brunero and memorabilia. Among other things, in June, when it was filmed in Ciriè, there was a reenactment and a ride through the streets of Brunero.
The short lasts 27 minutes and isn’t the only action on the great champions, the division the short is competing for from Forno, and the other on Learco Guerra. “The interesting thing is the idea of ​​doing research and re-enactment of sports as well as practice by the same means at that time.” Events organized with the Italian Cycling Federation Nova suggest competitions, such as the Rome-Naples, on old bikes (from the early 20th century) and with materials from the cycling historical period.
