The Sicilian city of Palermo is one of four candidates in the running to host the start of the 2007 Giro d'Italia. Council member for the city of Palermo, lawyer Stefano Santoro, was told of the news by race organiser Angelo Zomegnan from RCS Sport, a division of Italian sports newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport. Palermo was also in the running to host the 2006 départ, but in the end, the honour went to the Belgian town of Seraing, where the race will begin on May 6 next year.
