Reduced distance is not significant. Normally, the longer, the harder.
But what is not known is that the Via Roma is slightly uphill and most importantly wind-sheltered. That is a huge advantage for attackers.
But really wasn't that street and the fountain beautiful? It's the only finish line that had become famous in cycling.
