Dario's Frames and his Paint:

We spent a great deal of time and energy chasing down everything we could find about Dario and his frames, his children.  Unsurprisingly there is a lot.  He has been perfecting the bicycle frame since beginning his apprentiship with Luigino Milani in 1975:  he has been very busy.  However, since "perfecting the bicycle frame" also involves a lot of great music and knowing great musicians, traveling to interesting places and meeting interesting people, fine food and generally having a good time, we don't feel too badly for him.  It is clear that in Dario's case, great art comes at the expense of living a great life.

When asked which frame is his favorite, Dario replied "Sono tutti i miei figli", "They are all my children".  His son seems to understand and is comfortable with his steel and aluminum siblings.
