Paolo Bellino, Managing Director of Rcs Sport: “The relationship with the Regione Siciliana has been consolidated for several years now, as demonstrated by Il Giro di Sicilia, which we will be re-proposing in April, and the other initiatives organised recently, including the Grande Partenza of the 2020 Giro d’Italia and the Palermo Sport Tourism Arena, an event that was a great success, attracting more than 50,000 people to the Foro Italico over three days. These events have a very important relapse on the territory both from the point of view of tourism and from the point of view of the return of image as this beautiful region, an extraordinary land rich in tradition, history and culture, will be visible all over the world. We are confident that this cooperation can continue and bring benefits to both in the short and long term”.
Elvira Amata, Regional Councillor for Tourism and Sport: “We are proud to host Il Giro di Sicilia again this year on our wonderful island. It is, as always, an extraordinary occasion that projects us onto an international stage, offering the possibility of making our tourist, cultural, architectural, landscape, and monumental heritage known, but also of enhancing the special sports caravan of undisputed and consolidated value. We will be present at the four planned stages that will cross our territories to enjoy the spectacle and share the joy and enthusiasm of the many fans and tourists who will attend this beautiful competition”.
