Giro d'Italia: an interesting exhibition in Palazzo Poli

The exhibition Giro d'Italia looks into the origin of the Italian Tourism. The exhibition, organized by the Italian Touring Club, already presented in Venaria(TO) and Milan, will open in Rome at the Palazzo Poli between June 15 and 22. The exhibition has been realized thanks to the valuable documentation and photographic material conserved by the Documentation Centre of the Touring in the last 100 years. 

This exhibition brings together evocative images of the first twenty years (1894-1914) of the Italian Touring Club, very important years for the Italian Tourism and also a good initiative for the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy. The common denominator is the bike - half a symbol generator and the adventure of the Italian Cycling Touring Club,  but also the beginnings of the car and the travel photography.

The journey through the history of the Touring continues with the story of the first Tour of Italy, the cycling conferences promoted in every corner of the country, the decisive action of the Touring for what concern the devastated Italian roads, the completion of the first mapping and the first guides who brought "the Italians to know Italy".

The exhibition is open Tuesday to Sunday from 9:00 to 14:00. Free admission.
