With a conference at Coni, the 26th edition of the Menarini Prize, Thorpe and Pellegrini are among the winners

-

The curtain rises on the XXVI Menarini International Fair Play Award. This morning the Coni Hall of Honor in Rome hosted the press conference to present the event dedicated to the values ​​of sporting ethics. The Fair Play Menarini Foundation, which organizes the prestigious award, has unveiled the winners and the details of the program planned for this edition. The Award, born in 1997, will bring to Florence and Castiglion Fiorentino (Arezzo) personalities of absolute importance both for the sporting achievements and for the quality of testimonials of excellence of the cardinal principles of “fair play”. With fifteen categories and sixteen winners, the XXVI International Menarini Fair Play Award brings together excellent protagonists of water sports on a global level, swimming and diving in particular: from the “Divine” Federica Pellegrini to the phenomenon of the “race of the century”, the Australian Ian Thorpe , up to the record champion Tania Cagnotto. There is no shortage of VIPs in the history of football, the famous Argentine coach Marcelo Bielsa and the two big names in the green rectangle Massimo Ambrosini and Roberto Donadoni. Again from the world of football comes Fabrizio Ravanelli, who receives the Paolo Rossi Special Award (Category “Model for young people”), the title established last year in memory of the hero of Mundial 82 who died in 2020. The list of champions involved in the upcoming edition is enriched with the names of the Australian motorcycling champion Casey Stoner, Alessandra Perilli, an idol of skeet shooting heralding the first medal at the Olympic Games for San Marino and former volleyball player and coach Marco Bracci. Together with them, the taekwondoka Vito Dell’Aquila, gold in five circles at Tokyo 2020, and the athlete Stefania Constantini, the first ever Olympic medal for blue curling with gold in the mixed doubles. The duo made up of Giacomo Bertagnolli and Andrea Ravelli brings as a dowry to the International Fair Play Menarini Award its striking goals centered in Paralympic Alpine skiing. Not only professional athletes among the recipients of the plates. The Franco Lauro Special Prize “Narrating emotions” goes to the journalist Giorgio Porrà, while Beatrice Coradeschi is the young promising taekwondo winner of the “Studio e Sport” Yellow Flames Special Prize. “I cannot believe that we have reached the twenty-sixth Menarini International Fair Play Award – comments the president of the Italian National Olympic Committee Giovanni Malagò – I am proud of you, for what you do and for the message you launch, and also impressed by your ability to bring these sports monuments to receive the award. You’re unique. Long live Fair Play, long live the Foundation, long live sport and long live Italy. “” With the Menarini Fair Play Award, we hope that the younger generations will draw inspiration and take an example from the fairness of the awarded champions – say Lucia and Alberto Giovanni Aleotti , shareholders and members of the Menarini Board – Like Marcelo Bielsa who, during an important match, asked his players to let the opponents who had conceded, perhaps unjustly, a goal to score. That match ended in a draw, but Bielsa will always be remembered for that noble gesture that we are proud to celebrate today. “” We are very enthusiastic about the roster of winners of the first edition organized by us – says Ennio Troiano, member of the Board of the Fair Foundation Play Menarini – We have the first quarter of a century of the event behind us, but we are looking to the future to better celebrate this and the next editions, which will be full of surprises and great sportsmen. Menarini will continue to promote the values ​​of Fair Play through the deeds of the great champions of sport, in the hope that they will increasingly become the heritage of civil society as a whole. “While remaining on the track traced by its long history, the three days of the XXVI International Fair Play Award Menarini will present itself in a renewed and ambitious guise. One of the most important changes concerns the locations. Florence will welcome the sporting legends for the talk show “The champions tell themselves”, hosted by Ivan Zazzaroni and broadcast live on RTV38 during the evening of Tuesday 5 July from the Salone dei Cinquecento in Palazzo Vecchio. Also in Florence, the appointment with the traditional Menarini gala dinner is confirmed, scheduled in Piazzale Michelangelo on Wednesday, July 6. “An event that promotes one of the fundamental values ​​of sport, fair play – underlines the councilor for sport of the Municipality of Florence Cosimo Guccione – The one in Florence will be the first of the three appointments of this edition and the Salone dei Cinquecento will be the setting for the talk show ‘Samples tell each other’. As an administration we are happy that such an important evening is taking place in our city. And it is a great satisfaction to host great athletes in Palazzo Vecchio who have distinguished themselves not only in sport but also for their commitment to civil society. In the ‘Casa dei Fiorentini’ the Menarini Ambassadors will show us that fair play is the true essence of sport. “The award ceremony, entrusted to the conduct of Lorenzo Dallari and Rachele Sangiuliano, will take place in Castiglion Fiorentino, in the beautiful setting of the Loggiato Vasariano in Piazza del Municipio, live on Sportitalia on Thursday 7 July. “As in the past – adds Mario Agnelli, mayor of Castiglion Fiorentino – I am sure that this new edition of the Menarini International Fair Play Award will spread a high message of values ​​and sporting contents that will spread throughout the country. It is with great pleasure that I wish a good stay to all the participants in the city of Castiglion Fiorentino, waiting to shake their hand. “
