Fatti con le mani means made by hand.
This is what makes Pegoretti unique.
Dario Pegoretti credits Gino Milani for teaching him the science and the art
of building bicycles. From there, Pegoretti moved to his own shop, where
he continued to build frames. Pegoretti was among the first of the
European framebuilders to embrace lugless TIG welding to build premium
bicycles. In addition, Dario worked with leading edge manufacturers, such
as Excell and Dedacciai, in the development of new materials and tube
sets. He earned a strong following among professional riders, and built
bikes for a number of elite teams. Recently the enterprise moved to a new
shop, where Dario builds a small number of fine bicycles, by hand, each
year. In this world of cookie-cutter products Pegoretti occupies a unique
position as a true individual.
