Giuseppe died 1973 and the shop was closed. Antonio went to work in Gianni Motta’s shop for 1976 and 1977, then in the Colnago shop until 1979. Antonio Mondonico reopened his own shop in 1979.

From 1984 until 1989, Paolo Guerciotti and Mondonico went into partnership to produce both Guerciotti and Mondonico frames. with production nearing 2,000 frames per year. In 1989, Antonio, now with son Mauro, returned to their small artisan workshop.
