As an employee, famous car maker Ettore Bugatti created the motorized tricycle Tipo 1. The company became Stucchi & Co. as Giulio Prinetti left to become Italian minister of foreign affairs in 1901."
  " Stucchi were best known for their high end town bikes and only made a small amount of racers. They fielded a team in the late 1940s for the Giro and the Tour. Yellow was the company color. Family descendants play a role in organising recent L'Eroica events in Gaole Tuscanny."
