The Giro d'Italia Donne will officially be known as the Giro d'Italia Women in 2024, with new race organiser RCS Sport determined to relaunch the race after years of decline and lacklustre organisation.  

The Giro d'Italia Women will be officially launched on Friday alongside the full route presentation of the 2024 men's Giro d'Italia. However, Cyclingnews understands that the route presentation of the Giro d'Italia Women has been delayed by a few weeks due to late changes to the race route design.
