Both Castrovillari and Alberobello are located in the south of Italy, yet the departure place in the west and the arrival place in the east. As the crow flies the route is 185 kilometres, so the riders don’t have to take any detours.
It is twenty years ago that the Giro last visited Castrovillari. The 10th stage left here and at the end of the day Mario Cipollini jumped to the kisses of the podium girls.
For Alberobello it’s a first in the Giro d’Italia. The village is famed for its ‘trulli’. You’ll find these typical dry stone houses with a conical roof all around Apulia, yet in today’s arrival place whole districts are packed with trulli.
Not only did the Giro never visit Alberobello, it’s been three years te race was somewhere near. In 2014 Nacer Bouhanni took a bunch sprint in nearby Bari. Chances are the fast men will have it their way again in Apulia.
