The Belluno-Marmolada stage on Saturday 28 May will pay homage to the writer 50 years after his death. Passage over the bridge of San Felice and to Sospirolo an authentic “postcard” from the Certosa di Vedana
BELLUNO. Village and walkway in Piazza martiri, then the tribute to Dino Buzzati, on the 50th anniversary of his death. Then, again, the transit for the Left Piave, the crossing of the Piave at Trichiana, then the roads of the Pedemontana, touching Sedico, Santa Giustina, San Gregorio and Sospirolo, with the passage to the Certosa di Vedana.
After the presentation, the Belluno – Marmolada begins to take a more defined shape, the penultimate stage of the Giro d’Italia 2022, a fraction with very high technical content (it will be one of the most spectacular stages, with San Pellegrino and Pordoi before the finish line at Fedaia), but also notable showcase for the province.
Not only in the upper part, but also in the Valbelluna.
VILLAGE AND DEPARTURE IN BELLUNO
Last week there was an inspection of the RCS men in Belluno: they “took the measures” for everything concerning the departure, the village, the stage of the signature sheet, the area for the vehicles of the caravan. The details should be finalized in about a month. Much will then depend on the situation in the coming months in relation to the Covid-19 emergency. The village will be in Piazza Martiri.
The signature sheet could also be placed here or, as already in 2014 (Belluno – Panarotta) in Piazza Duomo.
The start will take place in front of the municipal theater. Then you will continue along via Roma and via Simone da Cusighe, to then head towards the Sarajevo bridge and via Miari, towards Sinistra Piave. So far, a catwalk.
ZERO KILOMETER IN SAN PELLEGRINO
The real start, the so-called zero kilometer, should take place in San Pellegrino, in front of Villa Buzzati. Not a coincidence: in 2022 the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Dino Buzzati will be celebrated and the Giro, always attentive to the history and culture of the Bel Paese, will pay homage to the journalist and writer who signed the Corriere della Sera and author of the Desert of the Tartars.
Precisely for the Corriere, in 1949 Buzzati followed the Giro as a correspondent, writing a series of articles (later published posthumously by Mondadori in the anthology “Dino Buzzati at the Giro d’Italia”) in which the news is closely intertwined with the imagination, giving rise to scenes that become a metaphor for existence.
IL PIAVE AND LA CERTOSA
The first part of the race will greatly enhance the Valbelluna, touching Limana and Trichiana, crossing the Piva in San Felice, passing through Sedico and Santa Giustina, going up to San Gregorio and then passing through Sospirolo where the Certosa di Vedana will not lack TV shots. Then we will enter the Agordina state road to get closer to the nerve centers of the stage.
