Verona: Proud to Host The Finish of the Giro d'Italia


"We are proud to be the choice of the organizers for conclusion of the next Giro d'Italia in Verona. The Arena (ed. note: the Roman coliseum in Piazza Bra) is a setting worthy of the event, and the city of Verona will be up to the task of hosting such an important event." These are the comments by Mayor Flavio Tosi to the news that Verona and its Arena will be hosting the final stage of the 2010 Giro d'Italia.


Verona Sports Counselor Federico Sboarina added, "May 30, 2010, will be a great day for Verona and for sport in the city which falls 26 years after the historic 1984 edition won by Francesco Moser."
