Madonna del Ghisallo | Valenti | Original Cycling Art


The spiritual home of cycling.

I’ve stood in the shadow of the chapel Madonna del Ghisallo in Italy and cried when they rang the bells as the riders in the 2019 Giro d’Italia raced up the climb. A very, very special painting for me to share. A very, very special place in my heart and the heart of so many.

As with all of my work I’ve taken liberties with the reality of a situation, in this case I’ve endeavored to capture the spirits of the past cycling decades with floating cyclists forever riding the winds. The facade of the chapel doesn’t have the Italian flag, it should. And for me the heart of the chapel is the Bianchi Celeste Green bell in the tower. I hope you enjoy the work.

The trim edge of the painting can be painted white or black as you wish.

If you have any questions about the work, feel free to contact me and talk. Enjoy.
