Riccardo Guasco’s illustrations for the “Veni Vidi Bici!” exhibition

From May 3rd to July 1st, 2018, the AcdB Museum – named after the acronym Alessandria città delle biciclette, i.e. “city of bicycles” – is showcasing one hundred wonderful illustrations by artist Riccardo Guasco, including original drawings, sketches and studies.

The exhibition is titled “Veni Vidi Bici!”, with a clever play on words based on Julius Caesar’s famous statement, and is set up on the second floor of Palazzo del Monferrato, headquarters of the newly-inaugurated Alessandria Città delle Biciclette Museum, under the patronage of Touring Club Italiano – which was actually founded by velocipede fans in 1894, as Touring Club Ciclistico Italiano.

“Since then,” TCI chairman Franco Iseppi explains, “Touring Club Italiano has continued to travel and to enable people to travel in Italy and abroad, with itineraries, travel guides, books, apps, initiatives on the territory and online, allowing tourism to be aware, slow, sustainable, tuned-into diversity and cultural heritage; it also has contributed for over a century to the development of the country. Offering patronage and promotion to the innovative “Veni Vidi Bici!” exhibition ties is coherently within these goals.”

Here are some of Guasco’s works.

Admission to the exhibition is free.
