Calendars of granfondo events throughout Italy can be found on this granfondo finder and on Matteo Dalzero's granfondo site

Other events I've ridden include the GF dei Colli Euganei-10 Colli del Santo, the GF Melinda, and the Medio Fondo del Feltrino (my first ever fondo), which have all been discontinued. In 1998 an all-women granfondo, La Conca di Smeraldo, was run in Recoaro Terme. It received coverage in national cycling magazines and my friends and I were excited to see photos of ourselves. It was never held again, and a the idea of a women-only event (intended to attract women who wanted to get into granfondo riding, but who might be intimidated by riding in a large event with predominantly male competitors) did not catch on.
