“Romani was a company based in the town of Sala Baganza in the province of Parma. It was a rather a big and well respected builder. Established in 1924, the company had its peak in the mid 1970s up to mid 1980s Surprisingly you rarely saw many bikes with the Romani brand because much of their production was third party frames. Virtually any shop in the Parma/Reggio Emilia/Modena area that had a shop brand but who did not build in-house, would have bought from Romani. They also built for many exporters. It is said that the two Romani brothers were involved with the Colner production and also had a collaboration with Colnago. Catalogs show that Romani made frames of Columbus SL, SLX, TSX tubes or Reynolds tubing. They closed down in the early 1990s. “
