Il Presidente FICTS Prof. Franco Ascani

Oggi, come allora, sostengo che la candidatura per i Giochi Olimpici, in questo caso Roma 2024, costituirà un fattore di sviluppo, di slancio e di forza motrice per lo sport italiano, con l’obiettivo di far crescere la cultura sportiva del Paese (che ne ha bisogno). L’Italia ha capacità, uomini e mezzi per essere sede dei Giochi. Milano – dopo EXPO 2015 - potrebbe essere sede anche delle attività culturali previste dal dossier di Candidatura dei Giochi. L’Italia può farcela se vorrà e se saprà giocare bene le carte utilizzando TUTTE le risorse umane disponibili per analizzare le soluzioni per riportare nel nostro Paese il più affascinante evento di cultura sportiva del pianeta, con i giovani a fare da protagonisti”.

TOM has been renovated thanks to a significant investment of the International Olympic Committee. The impressive building, located on the shores of Genève’s Lake, was redesigned in what would be more correct to call a “temple” in honor of the Olympic Games.
