Kramon – Misty Giau – Giro d’ItaliaKristof Ramon Photographic Art
Harm Vanhoucke coming over the Passo Giau, stage 16 – Giro d’Italia 2021.
It seems extraordinary that the Passo Giau has appeared on the route of the Giro d’Italia only a handful of times. On its Giro premiere in 1973, the Giau, still unpaved at the time, lived up to its billing by La Stampa as a horrific obstacle.
The winner in Auronzo that day was José Manuel Fuente; the Italian Franco Bitossi collapsed completely, losing over half an hour. Since then and after being smoothed out with tarmac the Giro has used the climb in addition with some of the other more famous peaks in the Dolomites, but there is no tougher climb in the range then the Giau.
Linking the valleys of Ampezzo and Livinallongo in the Dolomites, the Giau is considered to be the most beautiful mountain pass of the range that includes both the Fedaia and Pordoi.
Peaking in a vast and beautiful mountain pasture at the foot of the Nuvolau Alto 2647-metre turret you can also see the summits of the Tofane, Monte Cristallo and the Sorapis.
Each image is limited to just 8 pieces, is printed on ChromaLuxe Art Print Paper and can be framed or mounted on gallery quality German plexiglass. The artwork comes with a certificate of authenticity that is signed by the photographer.
