“This edition of the Neighbourhood Cup, for the first time at the end of the calendar year instead of at the beginning of the summer, after last June and previous years, is special especially because it is sponsored by the Garante dei diritti dell’infanzia e dell’adolescenza, which accompanies us on our journey and is fundamental to all our work and the goals we set ourselves”. – said Ilaria Nardi, President of the Carlo Enrico Giulini Foundation. “Seeing so many girls and boys at the Unipol Domus, with their families, teachers and school managers gives us great satisfaction, excitement and the desire to do more and more. Teachers in particular are fundamental for the students’ growth: with their daily work they spread the positive values that are fundamental not only in sport but in life. On my part and on behalf of the entire Foundation, thanks for such a great response that is renewed with each edition and to all those who support us in each project”.
