Lino Tempesta is the Uncle of Paolo
and Italo Guerciotti.
"In 1965 the Guerciottis started building their frames as a
full-time business. They hired their uncle Lino Tempesta, an
experienced builder, to provide additional guidance. Lino had been
building frames for Bianchi in Bergamo for 15 years. He knew how to
"use a torch" and he was a superb artisan. ... Paolo, Italo, and
Uncle Lino did all the frame building ... By 1972 the demand for
Guerciotti bicycles had grown ... Paolo and Italo ... were unable to
build the frames themselves. However, Guerciotti frames are still
being built by Uncle Lino. Lino supervises the three frame builders
who are now working for the Guerciotti firm..."
