Il Festival dello Sport
First Edition, RECORDS | 11th-14th Oct. 2018
Trentino, forever the land of sports and sport enthusiasts. For this very reason the Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper has chosen Trentino for the organisation of the first edition of the Festival dello Sport (Sports Festival) which will take place in Trento from the 11th to the 14th of October 2018. A unique chance for fans and enthusiasts to meet their idols and try out a range of sporting activities.
The festival already boasts “record” numbers: 4 days, 60 events, 15 locations and occupying 5 town squares.
You can attend and take part in debates, seminars and meet stars of both the national and international sport stage: athletes including Olympic and Paralympic competitors, coaches, institutional figures and experts.
The format of single events varies, ranging from interviews, seminars and debates to workshops, sport camps and book signings, alongside the sporting personalities that have made, or are still making, sporting history.
The numerous theatres, cinemas and historic palazzos of Trento will host debates and interviews, whereas in the squares or piazzas of the city you’ll be able to participate in a number of sporting activities, from basketball to volleyball, from fencing to free-climbing.
A range of indoor events and outdoor activities, open to all from morning to evening throughout the 4 days of the Festival.
The programme is full of appointments that revolve around the theme of records: how to set a record, hold on to it and, of course, break it. Participants will also be able to try to break, or at least set, personal records in various activities.
The organisers are the Gazzetta dello Sport, the most widely read daily newspaper in Italy, and Trentino Marketing, with the support of the Italian Olympic (CONI) and Paralympic Committees.
