Bike Virus? Sounds familiar to me.
If my next-to-non-existent Italian skills are worth anything, it seems that Il Virus delle Bici is a photography book of Luca Sorianos photos of trashed & dead bikes from Bologna, Italy. I don't see any vintage Italian road or track bikes in those photos but that's probably only a good thing.
My secret Italian source just informed me that Bologna, being a big old University town, is also the Italian capital of junkie bike business, meaning that local substance-abusers do lively business there by stealing bikes from the local students - only to sell them back to other local students. You know how it goes.
