“Strength, concentration, determination, beauty and passion. These are the ingredients of the 106th edition of the Giro d’Italia, the world’s toughest and most spectacular race, which in 2023 will again stop in the Veneto region. The pink caravan will cross the roads, the coast and the Dolomite peaks World Heritage Sites, places that in the past have seen important pages of cycling history written. The toughest, but also the most exciting stages of the Giro’s final week will be staged in Veneto. For the first time, Caorle will feature a finish and a start, kicking off the stage with a finish in Val di Zoldo. Finally, from Longarone will start the grueling Dolomite mountain stage with the Tre Cime di Lavaredo.”
This is how the President of the Veneto Region, Luca Zaia, greets the Giro d’Italia 2023, the event that has been chronicling the exploits of cyclists for 106 years, scheduled this year from May 6 to 28, 2023. The pink race will arrive in Veneto on May 24 and for three days will give cycling fans a great sporting moment.
“It will be a Giro with a very high sporting and environmental value for the Veneto, which will be able to tell the story of its territory but also its wounds,” Zaia continued. “Landscapes that experienced sixty years ago the Vajont tragedy and more recently that of the Vaia storm. Territories that must be preserved and enhanced also through events like that of the pink caravan, which will travel the roads of one of the most passionate pedal regions in Italy. The people of Veneto love sports, love and practice cycling, love the Giro d’Italia and are proud to follow closely the 2023 edition as well.”
