Romani founded by the brothers Rodolfo and Gaetano Romani
and entered the cycling business as a small framebuilting company in 1924 based in the town of Sala Baganza in the province of Parma, Italy. Despite its long history and evolution it never became a widely known company for two reasons:

a) They manufactured mainly bike frames and rarely whole bikes.

It was a big frame builder, however you rarely saw many bikes
with the Romani name on them because over 80% of their production was third party frames. Literally any bike shop in the area of Parma/Reggio, Emilia /Modena that had a shop branded line of bikes would have bought from them if they did not build in house. Road bike frames like Piemme, Ghidini and other are in fact Romani. They also built for many exporters. Like Paolo Alto USA., Faglum Racer in Sweden etc. Their quality was quite good and always represented a good value for your money.

This one was at the point of destruction After a lot of personal work from a good friend of mine including sandblasting, rechroming, respacing chain stays plus an excellent design & paint job.
this beauty is final on the street again.
In a few words its a pleasure to ride it, really stiff with a racing spirit very accurate at cornering with a pretty satisfying acceleration (for a steel road bike).

Looks great

Nice restoration. Did you do something to the finish of the crankset? It doesn't look like the black carbon that I know.

Such a proper restomod! The

Such a proper restomod! The old Marzano would love a repaint like that.

Thank you Your Marzano looks

Thank you
Your Marzano looks great. If you want to try the "painful" process of repaint better find a professional for the job. At my opinion your frame just needs same minor paint corrections and a good polish nothing else.
