MURO DI CA’ DEL POGGIO, UNO SPETTACOLO VERTICALE
A San Pietro di Feletto la salita simbolo della terra del Prosecco
Il Muro di Ca’ del Poggio is located in San Pietro di Feletto, on Treviso district, a halfway between Venice and the Dolomites and it is considered as the symbol of Prosecco land uphill.
It consists of a 1.3 km long rise, completely paved, with an average gradient of 15% and with peaks of 19% and since 2016 it is twinned with Muro di Grammont, the mythical breakout of the Flanders Tour. Just on the last edition of the Flanders Tour, last April 1st, with the inspection of an Italian delegation to Belgium, it was an opportunity to strengthen a relationship between Muro di Ca’ del Poggio and Muro di Grammont, in perspective that the twinning can generate new opportunities to promote new lands and also thanks to the creation of an European circuit that brings together all the climbs linked to the history of the great cycling.
With this purpose, on July 12th 2018 the twinning was officially sanctioned, and, in addition to the rise of San Pietro di Feletto and Muro di Grammont, it also links Mûr-de-Bretagne, another famous climb that has made the history of the international cycling.
On Muro di Ca’ del Poggio – the only hill certified by the Italian Cycling Federation – Giro d’Italia has passed four times: in 2009, 2013, 2014 and 2017. The “Pink race” has also crossed Muro di Ca’ del Poggio in 2015, on the occasion of the so-called Prosecco Crono. The Giro D’Italia, this time reserved for under 23’s, it has passed on June 16th 2018, when the rise in San Pietro di Feletto was the star of an original time trial in “Real Time” which ended the prestigious youth review.
Not only Giro d’Italia was part of the show. The climb in San Pietro di Feletto also hosted the 2010 Professional Italian Championship, which it has been developed for 11 rounds and in 2012 and 2015 it was the GIRO ROSA’s turn. In addition, there are seven cycling tests that include a ride on Muro di Ca’ del Poggio.
Every year the international youth competitions of San Vendemiano, San Michele di Feletto and Solighetto pass through the vineyards of San Pietro di Feletto. Then the Pina Cycling Marathon and Prosecco Cycling.
On September 5, 2019, the short film “Non so come, ma è successo” by director Nazareno Balani, dedicated to the symbolic ascent of the Prosecco hills, took part in the 76th Venice Film Festival by winning the Glass Lion.
