In 1952 he founded Colnago and started to work as mechanic for several professional teams.

He started to cooperate with Ferrari and came out with the Carbitubo, which immediately succeeded. The entire frameset is very precisely manufactured and made of carbon fiber tubes inserted into aluminium lugs and, beside that, shows a unique geometry with a double-tube down tube which makes the bike very stiff.
