Bellutti: ‘Crisis an opportunity to regenerate, people must be put back to the center’


May 11, 2021

“Crises are opportunities for change and regeneration. The pandemic has amplified new but also ancient problems: we need an overall vision, and the problem is increasingly the same: putting people and school back at the center, and to make schools and sports associations work in synergy, with a global approach “. This was stated by former cycling champion and candidate for the presidency of Coni Antonella Bellutti, who spoke at the webinar “Sport at the center of the country’s restart – Hypotheses and perspectives for a cultural revolution” promoted by Asi Italian Sports and Social Associations in collaboration with Adnkronos Communication and Ciwas. “For 107 years CONI has had the responsibility of carrying on the sport, what it has failed to do is dialogue with the institutions and in particular with the Ministry of Education. It is not a recent responsibility but we must face it: in the future we will have to educate 60 million Italians, and this is done by bringing these issues to school, with specialized personnel. With 250 million we would have physical education teachers in primary school, this is an important first step “. The setback on sports reform, Bellutti also underlines,” hurts, and is sorry because it contained a sporting discipline to which we looked forward , and instead continues a discrimination that is not good “.
