Bit Milano, lights on in L’Aquila, the European city of sport

The Eagle European City of Sport 2022 was also discussed at the International Tourism Exchange (BIT), which closed yesterday at the Milan Fair. This happened within the framework of the meeting organized by the Abruzzo Region in its stand, which was attended by various personalities of national and international sport, including, by the way, the president of the FIGC, Gabriele Gravina.

“During the meeting – explained the city councilor to tourism, Fabrice Aquilio, which represented the capital – I talked about the project prepared by the Biondi administration and in progress thanks to the excellent work of the Sports Councilor, Vito Colonna, the President of the Executive Committee, Francesco Bizarri, of all the actors of this important initiative and of the municipal offices in charge, which currently includes dozens and dozens of events already scheduled and to which new events are added. The activity of the municipal administration has turned out to give great importance to the sports associations of the region, with the aim of raising awareness among young people of the values ​​of sport and the well-being that the practice of sport entails. The Ministry of Sports, always in this sense, has commissioned the University of L’Aquila to carry out a survey of young people who carry out these activities in January 2022, in order to be able to compare it with a new survey in January 2023. Special attention was brought to the so-called minor sports, but very practiced by most. International breakdance championships, tournaments of particular athletic disciplines, sports initiatives for the disabled and many other events will enrich a very significant program for the city and the territory”.

Finally, Commissioner Aquilio took stock of the participation in the Bit in Milan. “There has been a lot of interest in our offer from many tour operators – observed – thanks also to the material we distributed on the city, the Perdonanza and, for the first time, on the tourist guides of the CAI. The message addressed by the Undersecretary for Culture, Senator Bergonzoni, within the framework of the meeting on forgiveness that I had with the director of the Unesco office of the Mic, Mariassunta Peci, considerably widened the attention towards the event, the city and the territory. A very warm thank you to the Abruzzo Region and in particular to the Councilor for Tourism, Danielle D’Amarioas well as its staff – concluded Councilor Aquilio – for the hospitality and support they have provided to us and to the Gran Sasso DCM district”.
