This year, for its 100th edition, and for the 76th time in its history, the Giro will conclude under the shadow of Milan’s Duomo Madonnina, with the final Individual Time Trial on 28 May. Milan is closely tied with the RCS Group, with its newspapers and its sport events.
Milan, 20 April 2017 – A marriage that has made the history of a city, the relationship between Milan and the RCS Group has developed over the years through the growth of large newspapers (such as Corriere della Sera and La Gazzetta dello Sport) and sport events, starting with the Giro d’Italia. This year’s Corsa Rosa, the 100th edition, organized by RCS Sport / La Gazzetta dello Sport, will draw to a close below Milan’s Madonnina, in Piazza Duomo, on the finish line of the last stage, a 29.3km Individual Time Trial which starts at the Monza Autodrome.
