  "Sante Pogliaghi was one of the acknowledged masters of post war Italian frame builders. He was sought after by top Olympic and Professionals alike. While his track bikes, both solo and track are most famous, he also made superb road bikes. Sante passed away << edited:  (in the year) 2000. The rights to manufacture frames under his name had been acquired by Marc Rossin around 1982, then in the later 1980s, the Basso brothers. >> Bikes from the 1970s and earlier, made by Sante himself, are highly prized by knowledgeable collectors." Pogliaghi chapter in "The Custom Bicycle by Denise dela Rosa and Michael Kolin, Rodale press

Additionally, Sante Pogliaghi was the nephew of Pierre Brambilla, and acquired that same workshop at his startup. The decal and head badge graphics carried forward a similar style.
