CROATIAN AND ITALIAN YOUNG FOOTBALL TEAMS PLAYING FOR THE AI MACRO-REGION IN ANCONA – 5 SEPTEMBER, ANCONA
The sixth edition of the sport and cultural event "We, playing for the Adriatic and Ionian Macro Region" took place in Ancona on 4 and 5 September. The tournament dedicated to the Macroregion aims to raise awareness among young people on the theme of the Macro-region of which the IAI for almost two decades, with the "Ancona Declaration" of May 2000, it is promoter and forerunner.
The event is a football tournament between Italian and Croatian teams under 13 aimed at fostering friendship and supporting the process of cohesion among the two shore of the Adriatic through sport. A project that combines Sport, Dialogue, Culture and Education to the European Citizenship, values that the Adriatic and Ionian Initiative has always promoted.
The award ceremony took place on 5 September at the presence of the Ambassador Fabio Pigliapoco, AII-PS Senior Advisor, Valeria Mancinelli, Mayor of Ancona, Rodolfo Giampieri, President of the Central Adriatic Port Authority and other institutional partners.
