A bit of sky blue thinking?

Turns out the colour of the object of my obsession is called ‘celeste’. Which I know is the colour associated with Bianchi, but if you do some research ‘celeste’ in Italian means sky blue (as in celestial) and is the colour of that Legend bike. Bianchi have changed the colour of their famous celeste over the years being more green these days in my opinion. But take a look at any old Bianchi jersey form the Coppi era and it is indeed ‘sky blue’.

Which is all a bit ironic, seeing as I’m going to need some blue sky thinking to save up to buy one!
