I will be traveling to Italy in September. This will be my third trip in 6 years. This year I plan to do the touristy thing and visit a few bike factories. I will be located in northern italy very close to Udine. My wife has relatives there and we stay for free(mind you we do offer them money for food and such).
I plan on visiting the Giordana factory. I have a good friend and he is the distributor for Giordana in Canada. I also would like to see Pinarello and maybe Bianchi.
Are there any other Factories in that area that I may be missing???.

Not a factory, but the chapel of Madonna del Ghisallo: http://gorp.away.com/gorp/location/europe/italy/bik_ghis.htm

When are you going? The Milan bike show is running from 15 to 18 September.
The Pinarello factory is in Treviso. I'm not sure you can visit the factory but they have a shop in the middle of town.
