The Monte Grappa is a place of history and remembrance. The conquest of its 1620 metres is something of a challenge, owing to the distance and some particularly intense stretches.
Among the various editions that have touched these places, it is worth recalling the Giro d’Italia of 2017, which was also the centenary edition. To mark this anniversary event, the Giro climbed Monte Grappa to commemorate the victims of the Great War.
