 "... In 1940 Aldo Bini was a professional cyclist for the ‘Viscontea’ in Milan, but at that time they didn’t have a real “Reparto Corse” as  Bianchi or Legnano, so Bini, they knew Mr. Masi (because they came from the same region in Tuscany)  and invited him to work in Milan for the first time. He moved and started building frames for the Viscontea team in Milan Bovisa in via la Masa..." From
