To celebrate the Giro d'Italia stage passing through Aviano (and up Piancavallo), local collectors staged an exhibition of antique bikes, gadgets, jerseys, etc. The Craftsmanship on Two Wheels show was held at a local historic site, Palazzo Menegozzi. Great exhibit- especially enjoyed the old work bikes: a postino's bike, a fireman's bike and a knife sharpener's bike.
