"Il Giro d'Italia" with Efrem Noli

Are you ready for a new exciting adventure at Magic Box? Well, this month our guest Efrem Noli, a former cyclist himself, will take us on a special tour called “Giro d’Italia”. It all started in 1909, with a huge popular participation and unforgettable champions. Do you remember Gino Bartali, Fausto Coppi, Felice Gimondi, Francesco Moser, Giuseppe Saronni and, in very recent times, Marco Pantani, who suffered premature death under tragic circumstances? Last year “Giro d’Italia” started in northern Sardinia going through Emerald Coast, Supramonte, Barbagia, and heading south, via Arbatax and beautiful sandy Costa Rei beaches, with its final Sardinian leg in Cagliari, its capital and largest city.

Efrem took a degree in Arts and started a long career as lecturer of Italian language and literature in Sardinian secondary schools., But he also has many other interests, such as long walks in the countryside, honey bee breeding, and a secret passion: cycling.

In his presentation, he will show us beautiful pictures, talk about “Giro d’Italia” history, and also about his personal experiences as a cyclist. Efrem will answer all our questions before concluding the evening over a glass of wine and some treats.

Everybody is welcome and entrance is free!
