The U.S. State Department website has chosen a cycling photograph for its ITALY section. Ivan Basso is seen in the pink jersey during the 2006 Giro d'Italia passing under the leaning Tower of Pisa. It's a fitting photo in light of the 100th anniversary of the Giro this year.
The Italy section, http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/4033.htm, is divided into informative sub-sections covering People, History, Government, Political Conditions, Economy, Foreign relations, U.S. Relations, Travel/Business and Background Notes
