At 32 years of age, some might say that Valentino Rossi is edging towards the twilight years of his career. At least now he’s got something to fall back on once he hangs up his leathers, as he announced the opening of his pizzeria in his home town of Tavullia, Italy. In the meantime, you can be sure this place will be packed each race weekend. Margherita pizza, anyone? Check out the official press release after the jump.

The priest, the mayor, the Priors of the Feast of St. Pio, Berta the news agent, Silverio the barber, and the entire population of Tavullia invite you to the opening of Valentino Rossi Fan Club’s new offices.

Located in the heart of Tavullia, the renovated Fan Club is a meeting place for members, but it also opens its doors to all fans to come eat a pizza in the new “Bar Pizzeria da Rossi”, to have breakfast in the morning, to enjoy a drink, to relax in a comfortable video-game room or to follow all the Grand Prix rounds or other sporting events in a comfortable TV room. It’s all in the “Fan Club” style, which means a very social, friendly atmosphere. Soon, a sea-view terrace will also be opened, where the entire VR46 clothing line will be on display.

It’s a special occasion that you won’t want to miss, just like Valentino’s debut with Ducati, which is why the Fan Club, in collaboration with the province of Pesaro, has decided to install a giant screen in Tavullia’s main square, in front of the Fan Club, for fans to watch the Qatar Grand Prix.

After all, if the priest, the mayor, the Priors of the Feast of San Pio, Berta the news agent, Silverio the barber and the local populace are all so content at the home of the Fan Club, there must be a reason….
