Torino and the Giro d’Italia, an unbreakable bond


The Grande Torino is a story that goes beyond the world of football and that is why the Giro d’Italia also joins in the memory of the Invincibles. On 4 May 2024, on the 75th anniversary of the tragedy of the Grande Torino, the opening stage of the Giro d’Italia will pass right by the hill of Superga to pay homage to all those who lost their lives in that terrible disaster.

The indissoluble bond between the Toro and the Giro d’Italia starts from a friendship between the Grande Torino players and Fausto Coppi, one of the most successful Italian riders ever. Precisely in 1949, Coppi was the first to achieve a feat that has since been repeated only six times: winning the Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France in the same year, racing with a small Torino pennant sewn onto his jersey in honour of the friends he had just lost.

Thanks to the collaboration between Torino FC and RCS Sport, the Giro d’Italia’s Trofeo Senza Fine, the Maglia Rosa, and the new jersey that Castelli, Official Partner of the Giro d’Italia, made in memory of Grande Torino were exhibited at the Stadio Grande Torino – before the Torino – Frosinone match
