Valentino Rossi Mugello 2006 Helmet by Milo Manara: As has become tradition, Rossi had a specially designed helmet created for the event. The helmet for 2006 was designed by Milo Manara, an Italian artist and writer best known for his graphic novels, comic books, and distinctive erotic art. Manara has a reputation for writing and illustrating comics that feature elegantly drawn, beautiful, and semi-dressed women exploring erotic and fantasy storylines.The helmet design was not dominated by the sun and the moon as past Rossi helmets have been, but instead it featured significant symbols from Rossi's life in a comic storyboard format. The right-hand side of the helmet featured Enzo Ferrari, and the left-hand side featured Steve McQueen - two men that Rossi counts as his heros. The top of the helmet is split into 4 storyboard panels and features Manara's drawings of Rossi, his dog Guido, Osvaldo the chicken (an early sponsor of Rossi that featured notably in one of Rossi's on-track celebrations), and one of the topless girls that Manara is famous for in his artwork. The back of the helmet featured the number 74 in tribute to the late Daijiro Kato (Kato died in 2003 after a crash, 74 was his racing number) and the word "Quarantasei" - the Italian for'46 Milo Manara also worked with Valentino on an actual comic book called Quarantasei in July 2006 that was created by Manara as a fantasy work loosely based on the life of Rossi. Sadly it is very hard to find now. Pretty stunning and definitely a collectors item if there ever was one. This one is a used one but has never seen the rain. There are 1 or 2 chips that are in the pictures. The item "AGV Ti-Tech Helmet Valentino Rossi Mugello 2006 (Milo Manara) Limited Edition" is in sale since Thursday, November 1, 2018.
