The second mural of the Giro d’Italia has been unveiled in Rome


The second mural dedicated to the Corsa Rosa, created by Roman artist Lucamaleonte in collaboration with RCS Sport, Roma Capitale, Atac and the Municipality, was inaugurated today at the Conca d’Oro metro station in Rome
The event was attended by Tadej Pogacar, winner of the Giro d’Italia, Roberto Gualtieri, Mayor of Rome, Paolo Bellino, Managing Director and General Manager of RCS Sport, Eugenio Patanè, Councillor for Mobility of the Municipality of Rome, Alberto Zorzan, General Manager of Atac, and Paolo Emilio Marchionne, President of the III Municipality of Roma Capitale.


The work is spread over three walls visible from the same viewpoint; it begins with the Trofeo Senza Fine, the finish line that drives every sportsman to compete. In the central part, the main one, three cyclists are intertwined with images of Rome, specifically in the places that the stage of the Giro has touched, from Ostia to the Fori Imperiali. The cyclists are generic, there is no portrait of anyone specifically because it was important to emphasise sportsmanship and athleticism without specific mention. The direction of the cyclists is towards the last wall with flowers in the colour of the Italian flag to symbolise Italian excellence as the true goal of the Giro.

Roberto Gualtieri, Mayor of Rome: “The Giro d’Italia in Rome was a success also thanks to those who worked to ensure that everything went smoothly. We brought the Grande Arrivo of the Corsa Rosa to the capital for two years in a row, for the first time in history, involving the population and tourists who came on the streets. Rome and the Romans have shown that they love the Giro and cycling, a sport in tune with the principles of sustainable mobility that we promote. We have shown this love to the world and it will live on thanks to works like this one”.

Alessandro Onorato, Councillor for Major Events, Tourism, Sport and Fashion of the Municipality of Rome: “The mural in Conca d’Oro is part of the concrete legacy that the Giro d’Italia leaves to Rome and its citizens. Last year we chose the Marconi underground stop to create an artistic work, now we are in Conca d’Oro, after having organised free cultural and entertainment shows in Ostia. Our goal is to involve the whole city, not just the historic centre, during the big events, which generate positive effects on the tourist economy, on the induced activities and on employment in the city, providing tourists with a new opportunity to come to Rome. I thank RCS Sport, the Mayor and all my fellow councillors for having teamed up in this very positive Rosa adventure for Rome”.

Paolo Bellino, CEO of RCS Sport: “For the second year in a row, Roma Capitale has welcomed the Carovana Rosa as a major event of world importance. Among the many collateral activities organised is the inauguration of the second city mural, which will bind the citizenship even more closely to the Giro d’Italia. The Corsa Rosa is also a promotion of Made in Italy, and there is no better business card than Rome to enhance the beauty of our country”.
