Fiorelli bicycles were founded in about 1950, by the three Fiorelli brothers.
They were based in Novi Ligure, Piedmonte, Italy, they are more famous for being the makers, of the Fausto Coppi branded bikes. They made the Coppi bikes from about 1958, till they retired in about 1990.
There is a lovely Fiorelli, in the readers bikes section, of the Classic lightweights UK website.

You mean this one? -

Owned by a friend of mine in the Bygone Bykes (Yorkshire) Club. I have another friend (also a BBC member) who has a couple more.

There's also this on Classic Rendezvous but it doesn't tell you much.

I must admit I'm quite surprised that there isn't more info available since they were quite popular in the 50's and 60's, featuring regularly in adverts in 'Sporting Cycist' magazine.
