Brooklyn is a former cycling team of Italian descent. A team with one of the most beautiful historical cycling jerseys. The name and shirt look American, but Brooklyn is Italian gum that was made in Milan. After seeing the American soldiers chewing the typical bubble gum with stars and stripes, the brothers Egidio and Ambrogio decided in 1946 to start producing chewing gum as well. Their company's great success only came in 1969 with the launch of Brooklyn, chewing gum with the USA stripes and the famous New York bridge as its image. This was a great success. In 2001 the company was merged as Perfetti Van Melle with the Dutch company Van Melle (Fruittella and Mentos). The Perfetti family now belongs to one of the richest families in Italy.
