Giovanni Valetti, born 1913. He is the most forgotten champion in the history of Italian cycling. He began as an amateur in 1933, during fascist times, under Mussolini's dictatorship. A time when cycling meant sweat, dusty roads, solitude and terrible efforts. Valetti became in a few years one of the most talented champions in Italy. He won two Tours of Italy in a row (1938-1939), defeating Gino Bartali, the strongest Italian cyclist of twentieth century. But the war interrupted Valetti's career. He ended up where he started, working as a laborer in a car factory, completely forgotten by everyone.
