The 2024 Tour de France will pass through Turin. Indeed, it will arrive in the Piedmontese capital. The rumors that have been circulating for more than a month are finding more and more confirmations, now only the official status is missing. The race that awards the yellow jersey will start on 29 June 2024 from Florence, in homage to the memory of the great Gino Bartali, with a stage up to Rimini.
The following day the caravan will leave from Cesenatico – near the statue dedicated to Marco Pantani, on the twentieth anniversary of the Pirate’s disappearance – to arrive in Bologna. The next day, Monday 1st July, here is the fraction that will start from Emilia to arrive in the shadow of the Mole. Finally, thanks to the sponsorship of the entrepreneur Elvio Chiatellino, the transfer is scheduled for 2 July to Pinerolo, from where the fourth stage that will take the riders to France will start. On this occasion the feat of Fausto Coppi will be remembered, the Campionissimo, in the stage of the stages of the Giro d’Italia, i.e. the legendary Cuneo-Pinerolo of 10 June 1949. After the Great Departure of the 2021 Giro d’Italia and the splendid “metropolitan mountain stage” of 21 May last, with a street circuit that included a double climb to Superga and Colle della Maddalena, so here is the appointment not to be missed with the Grande Boucle for Turin’s two-wheel enthusiasts.
The Tour de France operation in Italy should cost around 7 million plus other funds for services, a huge expense that will be borne above all by the coffers of Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna and Piedmont. The work carried out by the mayor of Turin Stefano Lo Russo in collaboration with the governor of Piedmont Alberto Cirio and the regional councilor for sport Fabrizio Ricca was decisive. Mayor Lo Russo said this last month: «The Tour in Turin will be an extraordinary promotional opportunity for our city and for Piedmont, thanks to the work of attracting one of the most popular sports competitions in Europe. We are defining methods and times, in order to guarantee the best possible effects for our territory ».
