Cycling photographer Silvia Galliani is a long time friend of Cinelli and has been the official Team Cinelli Chrome photographer since 2015. When not busy shooting cyling events around the globe the Italian photographer pursues her other passion, travelling.
On her most recent trip Silvia spent time taking shots around San Francisco and some of its most famous neighborhoods, Silvia also spoke to us about what brought about her love of travelling and photography. "I have always been passionate about travelling, and thanks to that I started developing my passion for photography. The desire to capture and immortalize what my eyes see drew me to photography, in my images I always try to convey the love for the place I'm exploring and San Francisco is a perfect example of that. Its diverse neighborhoods, landscapes and subcultures makes this city feel truly international, taking pictures in its urban context became not only a pleasure but a necessity. There is still plenty to see and to shoot in SF and I will surely be back very soon."
While in San Francisco Silvia got to try out 2 new caps in the Cinelli Collection: The reversible #gohobo and the Chita summer training cap.
Two-sided reversible cotton cap dedicated to the Cinelli Bootleg Hobo. The cap is made in Italy with a double layer of soft cotton that is totally reversible. New design by Dario Toso, the man behind the Cinelli Hobo project. "My world travels gave me inspiration to create the perfect travel bicycle, the Hobo. The cap is an extension of this concept, get out there and #gohobo!" The Chita is the perfect cap for summer training rides, the sides are made of a polyester mesh for maximum breathability. The interior of the cap features an antibacterial band that is also extremely comfortable for added protection on the hottest days. Jungle Zen is a lively new design by Italian designer Lida Ziruffo. Jungle Zen features the classic cotton cap Made in Italy. One size fits all.
