TODAY THE SKI CHAMPION IN L’AQUILA ON REMEMBRANCE DAY. (REGFLASH) – L’Aquila, April 6 An event dedicated to mountain safety on a very significant day, reserved for the memory of the 309 victims of the earthquake of April 6, 2009, with an exceptional guest like Alberto Tomba, ski champion, one of the greatest sportsmen in the history of Italian sports. A presence strongly desired by the adviser for the budget, interior spaces and sport, Guido Quintino Liris, within the framework of the conference “I do not wear helmets”, organized by FISI Abruzzo in L’Aquila, in the hall of the Academy of Fine Arts. “You are part of our land, you are as strong as the mountains of Abruzzo” with this sentence the commissioner gave the athlete a small wooden sculpture representing the Corno Grande of the Gran Sasso massif. In addition to Councilor Liris, the president of the Abruzzo Fisi regional committee, Angelo Ciminelli, the federal technician Luigi Faccia, Francesco Persio, jurist at the presidency of the Council of Ministers and member of the government commission for the reform of sport, took the floor . Andrea Formento, President of Federfuni. A video contribution came from the President of the Council of State Franco Frattini, on legislative issues concerning security.

From there therefore leaves today, day of remembrance, of mourning for the city, a strong and clear message, constructive and proactive, on the need to live in the mountains in complete safety, in maximum freedom provided you have a sense of keen sense of responsibility and knowledge. We talked about safety, prevention and training with qualified and punctual interventions. An investment in terms of health, well-being and improvement of the quality of life, as well as an important opportunity for the economic and social development of the territory. “We need great responsibility and consequent choices – underlined Commissioner Liris – To ensure that the mountains are truly ‘friendly’, it is important to create the necessary sensitivity and fully increase awareness risks. A concrete message must come from L’Aquila today: memory must be alive so that all tragedies do not have to repeat themselves. I am thinking both of earthquakes and of mountain accidents, recalling also the tragedy of Velino and its victims and the last sad episodes. It is essential to face everything with a team spirit and collaboration. We have decided to establish a long-term scientific technical table on the mountain, in a multidisciplinary perspective. It is true that the more funds it takes, the more attention, planning and long-term strategies there are, thus we open a season of opportunities that can produce growth. and development for our territory. On this, we must work together, with the various players, to better federate and synchronize strategies. The presence of Alberto Tomba – concluded the commissioner – represents a signal of attention towards Abruzzo. This is the testimony of a champion who loves the Gran Sasso and who was the first to use a helmet and bumpers to ski. A man who made Italy great in the world”.

“It is an honor to be in L’Aquila on such an important day – said Alberto Tomba – I had already come in 2009, two months after the earthquake, and I keep the memory of those days in my heart. Today I am here to remember and talk about safety which, in sport as in life, is an essential subject”. Tomorrow Alberto Tomba will be at Campo Imperatore with the instructor Luigi Faccia for the student ski championships, thanks to the work carried out by the Gran Sasso tourist center. (Regflash) K.
