The points classification in the Giro d'Italia is one of the secondary classifications in the Giro d'Italia. It is determined by the placements in the daily stages, independent from time distances. From 1967 to 1969 the leader wore a red jersey but in 1970 it was changed to mauve, named maglia ciclamino (from Italian: mauve jersey), named for its color of the alpine flower cyclamen. The red jersey was re-introduced in 2010. It will now be called the maglia rosso passione.
