Lampre-Farnese Vini (UCI team code: LAM) is an Italian road bicycle racing team. It was known in 2005 as Lampre-Caffita, a fusion of the previous Lampre and Saeco teams. Lampre is an Italian manufacturer of prefinished steel sheet materials. Farnese Vini is an Italian winery. From 2005 to 2009 the team was a member of the UCI ProTour, but although the licence was renewed in 2009 for a four year period, its registration application for the 2010 rseason was rejected, and the licence is, as of January 2010, under review.

The team consists mostly of Italian riders, and has a strong presence in the grand tours, especially the Giro d'Italia. The manager Giuseppe Saronni was himself a famous professional cyclist and former winner of the Giro d'Italia. The directeur sportif is Giuseppe Martinelli.

Following the tradition at Saeco, the team is well-known for its publicity stunts. In the 2005 Giro d'Italia the team engaged in a press campaign Battaile d'Italia featuring their co-captains Gilberto Simoni and Damiano Cunego.[1] During a rest day of the Giro, the team elected to visit the Monza race track for a photo-op and some training sessions. Team lead sponsor, Lampre Group, is an industrial steel manufacturer, which coats its coils and sheets of steel with many colors of PVC paint.
