First stop when I arrive in 'my' part of Italy is always at my very good friend Nedo's house. We'll sit and drink an espresso, chew the fat and laugh and enjoy each other's company. He's a retired engineer for ENEL, the Italian state electric company, but he's busier than ever, restoring and sorting out bikes. There's always something interesting to look at in his compact workshop and garages. I was up there today, and blimey, it's getting hot here in Tuscany. Nedo's just finished a '54 MV 'Disco Volante' - very nice! More tomorrow.
