In 1973, a local bicycle “fanatic” Oliviero Gallegati from the Lugo (Romagna, Italy), began to manufacture exquisite custom road bicycles and founded SOMEC (SOcieta MECchanica) which became famous for unique finished products and using the most highly evolved technological and precise construction methods.
Somec is featuring two logos, ”The tulip”, because it is elegant, durable and comes in a vast array of colors and ”The stallion” which famous war warrior Francesco Baracca from Lugo had emblazoned on his airplane. This same horse was given by Baracca’s family to Ferrari, a prestigiuos car manufacturer.
