ROMA 2022 AT THE FESTIVAL OF ARCHITECTURE. CAMPANILE: "WE ARE EXPECTING A LARGE AUDIENCE IN THE STANDS"

Bruno Campanile, il Direttore Esecutivo di Roma 2022, è intervenuto presso l?Acquario Romano all?incontro ?Grandi eventi: quali occasioni per Roma?? organizzato nell?ambito del Rome's Architecture Festival to present the run-up to the European Aquatics Championships for élite and masters athletes, that will be staged in the capital and in Ostia next August.

Among the other speakers of the conference there were Roberto Tavani, Latium Region Sport Delegate, Alessandro Onorato, Councillor of Roma Capitale for Major Events, Matteo Gatto, Expo2030 Technical Director, Riccardo Viola, CONI Latium President, Diego Nepi Molineris, General Director of Sport and Health. "The European Aquatics Championships," Roberto Tavani said, 'are one of the most eagerly awaited events of this summer. The region is actively participating in this great event, because it's an important international opportunity for promoting regional excellence, from food and wine to production."

A introdurre il successivo intervento di Bruno Campanile il video suggestivo di presentazione degli europei che descrive il rapporto ancestrale tra la Città Eterna e l?acqua. Quattro le settimane di gare, élite dall?11 al 21 agosto, e poi si riprenderà, dal 24 agosto al 4 settembre con le competizioni master. ?Questo evento internazionale ? dichiara il Direttore Campanile ? "will be a great opportunity to promote tourism. Elite and masters champions, athletes and spectators will stay beyond the dates of the event to admire the wonderful beauty that Rome has to offer."

Campanile continued explaining the upgrading of the existing facilities. "Thanks to the Latium Region," he added, "we are carrying out upgrades and improvements to the Pietralata and Ostia swimming centres. There are planned work in progress in Viterbo, on the new Anzio Swimming Stadium, and on the Foro Italico Park, with the cooperation of 'Sport and Health'. This swimming centre is of excellent quality. The Foro Italico swimming pool,is the most beautiful in the world, but there are important works to be done in view of the continental competition. All the seats in the swimming stadium will be replaced and a new lighting system is being built. These changes will leave a profound legacy for the city," he said.

'Almost all the events will take place inside the Foro Italico, where the European Championships Village will be set up to entertain the fans attending. From next week, tickets will go on sale,' the Executive Director added. 'We are expecting a large audience in the stands."

Then he revealed an anecdote per dimostrare come l?evento di Roma sia sempre più all?insegna dell?inclusione e dell?accessibilità. ?Una signora di 91 anni ? ha raccontato ? ha inviato la sua iscrizione ai master e ci ha scritto per raccontarci la sua storia. Lei è molto brava a nuotare, ma ha qualche difficoltà a camminare. Aveva, dunque, delle preoccupazioni per raggiungere la piscina. Noi le abbiamo risposto che l?organizzazione fornisce tutto il supporto necessario agli atleti per far vivere loro un?esperienza unica?.
