Default Longest Team Name

During 2008-2009 Gianni Savio's team was called "Serramenti PVC Diquigiovanni-Androni Giocattoli", 43 chars in total. In next 2 years Androni became the main sponsor but the character remains the same. So was there any team with longer name before? Amateur team not included.

To expel boredom.

Formaggi Pinzolo Fiave-Ciarrocchi Immobiliare

These smaller Italian teams with about a million sponsors are always a treat

Edit: Damn, only 41 chars. Savio's Angels still in front.
