Due Route È Vita
Pasquale Polo.
Unione Italiana Collezionisti Olimpici e Sportivi, Italia, 2004.
This publication is a reproduction of the Pasquale Polo collection. DUE RUOTE is VITA. It is 96 pages dedicated to the history of cycling and cycling, a story that could not be divided because if there are the Tour de France, the Giro d'Italia and the World Cycling Championships, it is because there are also some billions of people who pedal by necessity, for pleasure and for fun.

As a wonderful topical, cyclophilately has been featured many times in general philatelic journals.

Sometimes the presence of cyclophilately on the cover has shown the significance of the articles.


Thematic exhibiting requies the knowledge of exhibiting rules and often the advice of advanced collectors.

Handbook of Thematic Philately. W.E.J. van den Bold.
Thematic Exhibiting. Wobbe Vegter.
