FAUSTO COPPI ITALIAN CYCLIST print is a reproduction of a newspaper cover from 1952 featuring the famous Italian cyclist Fausto Coppi on his way to winning that years Tour de France.
It was the 39th edition of the Tour and Coppi won five stages and the mountains classification, giving him a final margin of almost half an hour over the second-ranked cyclist, Stan Ockers of Belgium. Such a margin has never been achieved since although it falls well short of the greatest winning margin in the races history of just under 3 hours in the first ever Tour de France held in 1903.
Treasured for its stunning illustrations, the Italian La Domenica del Corriere (The Sunday Courier), hit the edicola every weekend between 1899 and 1989. It came free with the daily newspaper, Corriere della Sera, or could be purchased separately.
