The Giro D'Italia: Coppi vs. Bartali at the 1949 Tour of Italyby Dino Buzzati, Dino Buzatti
The Tour of Italy, Giro d'Italia was not raced for several years during World War II, and the first postwar race took place in 1949, when the country was still recovering. This newly translated book -- from Dino Buzatti's newspaper accounts at the time -- captures the excitement of that contest, which drew national attention and made heroes of the cyclists Coppi and Bartali.
