Belgium creates special Giro stamp

The Belgian Post service has created a special stamp to honour the start of the 2006 Giro d'Italia in Belgium, where the race will stay for four days next year. "La Vallonia lancia il Giro 2006" [Wallonny starts the 2006 Giro - ed.] is printed on the 50 Euro cent stamp, which shows Gilberto Simoni in the maglia rosa as winner of the race. The Giro stamp will be produced in four languages in a total circulation of 220,000, to be released on the market on April 24, 2006.
