Published on 4/9/2019 by Regione Marche - Outdoor Team
The Marche region opens its doors to the champion Vincenzo Nibali, one of the few in the history of cycling to win 2 Giri D'Italia, the Tour de France, the Vuelta of Spain, the Milan - Sanremo, 2 Italian Championships and other very important races, including 2 Tirreno-Adriatico.

"He chose us" says President Luca Ceriscioli last night at the evening organised on the territory thanks to the contribution of the chalet VerdeFiastra at Lake Fiastra, and the Marche responded en masse, proud to show themselves in the most beautiful dress, made of environment and people.

The Mayor of Fiastra Sauro Scaficchia thanked the Marche Region for the opportunity and attention dedicated to the internal territories, territories that are bound together to grow stronger, territories that by their nature are also the ones of most interest to the passionate about bicycles, made of rolling hills and mountains, with ridges and heights suitable for everyone.

Vincenzo Nibali, remembering the passed teammate Michele Scarponi with teary eye, embraces this land and values its natural beauty, but puts the emphasis above all on the people, the passion for their work, the kind and professional welcome and love for their own territory. A territory that was hit hard, but still alive and that has united to get back on its feet and pedal together even stronger, a territory made of excellence, of many famous companies in the world, of delicious typical products and quality of life. 

A perfect balance to be valued using the bicycle and the Marche Region is doing it.

Here are some backstage photos.
