Description of Santini Maglia Nera Jersey RE94075RNERA

From 1946 to 1951, the Giro D’Italia awarded a symbolic prize to the last man to finish the race. The legendary Maglia Nera (Black jersey) was a testament to the will and determination it took simply to compete in and finish a Grand Tour. The prize, which came with cash awards, food and drink at the end of each stage, and the adulation of the Italian tifosi, became so coveted that fierce competition developed to claim the jersey. Two riders in particular, Luigi Malabrocca and Sante Carollo, went through great lengths to see who could waste the most time.

They would hide in restaurants and barns or under bridges, or simply damage their own equipment to finish last. Malabrocca took the prize in 1946 and 1947, the only two-time winner. He became known as the master of delay. He would meander at the back of the race. He would often stop for an espresso with fans that could easily turn into a long, lingering lunch. He was once caught fishing in the canals of the Ticino River! Inspired by the mischief and the tenacity represented by this noble award, Santini is proud to offer a collection of Maglia Nera cycling clothing.

The collection begins with a cycling jersey. Look closely and you’ll see that the logo incorporates a rider crossing a bridge where a mischievous face peers up at him from the river below. The numbers on the sleeve reference Luigi Malabrocca’s finishing time from the 1946 Giro; 69 hours, 41 minutes and 54 seconds, enough for him to claim the inaugural edition of the prize. Also hidden in the design is a geometric pattern created by repeating the word NERA. Lastly, we added the phrase ‘L’ULTIMO IN FUGA’, meaning ‘last in the break,’ to the back of the collar.

The jersey has a slim fit, full front zip and 3 classic rear pockets. It is made of C+Rider fabric.
