Company F.lli Masciaghi (Masciaghi Brothers) was the owner of the brand Fausto Coppi in early 1990s and they put in charge Giovanni Pelizzoli for the design and manufacturing of their top racing frames for Team Polti. The pro team included Gianni Bugno, winner of ”Flanders” Tour, Mauro Giannetti, Mirko Celestino, Richard Virenque, Davide Rebellin and Ivan Gotti, winner of Giro d’Italia.
