The answers appeared in the Gazzette dello Sport, the sponsor of the Giro:
2 Galetti, Gotti, Savoldelli
1 Ganna, Oriani, Belloni, Pesenti, Guerra, Bergamaschi, Motta, Bertoglio, Visentini, Bugno, Garzelli, Basso
2 Girardengo, Valetti, Balmamion, Saronni

3 Bartali, Magni
1 Nencini, Chioccioli
1 Calzolari, Baldini, Pambianco, Adorni, Pantani

Abruzzo is the southern most region where a winner has come from, and that was just last year (2007).
No one submitted the correct answer. "Ron" came close so a consolidation prize is awarded (Ron leave me your email address in the comments).
