Quant’è pittoresco il Tour de France

Al di là delle prodezze dei campioni, una gara ciclistica come il Tour de France – in corso in questi giorni – è anche l’occasione per ammirare le bellezze naturali del Paese che la gara attraversa, e i suggestivi effetti che si creano al passaggio dei ciclisti: è il caso ad esempio dei riflessi nei fiumi, o del turbinio dei colori dei girasoli e delle magliette. Senza dimenticare, come testimoniano le immagini, un po’ di sano patriottismo.
