Bottecchia, an historic company. 1909, Teodoro Carnielli from Vittorio Veneto is a craftsman, he repairs and constructs bikes. He firstly supports and than become President of Local Bikes Association, and immediatly recognise the enormous talent of Ottavio Bottecchia.


After having consecreted the young Ottavio Bottecchia on “Bici Automoto”, Carnielli ask him to take advantage of the magic moment by producing one Bottecchia bike. During the years, the small Carnielli workshop becomes an industry; between 1930 and 1940 there are about 100 workers who construct Bottecchia bikes, Trionfo and Vittoria motorbike. There is a lot of quantity and a big variety of Bottecchia bikes; however the most important product is the race model. Teodoro Carnielli, more and more enthusiastic of race competitions, starts to promote some cyclists which use Bottecchia bikes.
On 1951 Guido Carnielli has a big idea: to create a bike that can be used standing still, helpful for physical rehabilitation: it is the first CYCLETTE in the world. At the beginning of sixties, Guido has another revolutionary idea. In Italy this is the period of economic boom and more and more people has the possibility to buy a car. From here the idea of a folding bike, with small wheels, which can be transportated in a car. To produce that model, Carnielli bears a great economical effort. GRAZIELLA, whose name come from a newspaper which firstly advertises it, was designed by Rinaldo Donzelli on 1963 and became a worldwide success.


At the end of sixties, the old Teodoro passes on the baton to his sons Guido and Mario. With Bottecchia bikes they start agian to give merit to the cyclism and they will obtain other wins and successes.
