the Giro is available on Rai Click TV.
"Le tappe" is a segment previewing each stage.
"Prima Tappa"; "Seconda Tappa", etc. is the coverage of the stage.
"T Giro" is a wrap-up of each stage.

And, of course, Paolo Belli. E' Un Gran Bel Giro....!
As far as the start times, they usually vary between 10:00/11:00 (in Italy).
You can see each stage start time by clicking on "cronotabella" here: http://www.gazzetta.it/Speciali/Giroditalia/2006/it/tappe.shtml
