The parents of Marco Pantani were at the presentation of the Settimana Ciclistica Internazionale di Coppi e Bartali. Tonina and Paolo were gifted a painting with the back number 145, the number in which il Pirata wore when he competed his final Coppi e Bartali, Settimana Ciclistica Internazionale stage 5, March 30, 2003. That number was retired in the 2004 edition, where at the start of the race organizers released 145 white doves.

The 2007 edition of the race is slated for March 27 to 31, and should include Italians Paolo Bettini (Quickstep-Innergetic), Alessandro Petacchi (Milram), Paolo Savoldelli (Astana) and Gilberto Simoni (Saunier Duval-Prodir).
