FAUSTO COPPI E LA STORIA DEL CICLISMO ITALIANO

CfP: deadline 31 May 2019

Il 15 settembre 1919 nasceva uno dei ciclisti più forti di tutti i tempi: il “campionissimo” Fausto Coppi. La definitiva esplosione della sua carriera coincise con alcuni dei momenti chiave della storia d’Italia: la ricostruzione del secondo dopoguerra e il boom economico. Il ciclismo e i suoi due maggiori rappresentanti, Fausto Coppi e Gino Bartali, senza dimenticare il terzo uomo Fiorenzo Magni, divennero l’emblema dell’Italia che voleva ricostruire: il pedalare nella fatica dei ciclisti ben si sovrapponeva con il lavoro che la popolazione italiana sostenne per recuperare in tempi brevi condizioni di vita normali, lontane dai disastri della Guerra. Fu anche grazie a campioni come Fausto Coppi che il ciclismo consolidò il suo primato di sport più seguito in Italia per tutti gli anni Cinquanta e Sessanta. La centralità del ciclismo nella vita sociale degli italiani fece sì che il coinvolgimento per la bicicletta non si limitasse ai soli sportivi ma comprendesse anche interessi politici, economici e culturali.

CESH president, Mike Huggins, new publication

We proudly announce the publication of the book Horse Racing and British Society in the Long Eighteenth Century by Mike Huggins, CESH president.

Please find below a link to the book:

https://boydellandbrewer.com/horse-racing-and-british-society-in-the-long-eighteenth-century-hb.html

Recommended by Allen Guttmann, leading American historian of sport who says:

‘Mike Huggins has carried out a prodigious amount of research into primary and secondary sources and used the research to produce a major work of sports history that is really much more than sports history.  His study of horse racing is actually a political, economic, social, and cultural interpretation of 18th-century Britain as seen through the prism of its most important sport. He has done a beautiful job of organizing a vast amount of material into a coherent and continually interesting narrative’.
