Years ago, Luca Mazzone chose to dress a symbol that celebrates his born city, Terlizzi, “city of flowers”, a humble, industrious and tenacious city. Luca has chosen our company and we support its path, we share the origin from a land full of challenges and we live with the pride of feeling part of a common history.
This year has been an unforgettable year for our champion, triple paracycling world champion. On December 19th, Luca received in Rome the Collare d’Oro for sporting merit, the highest honor of Italian sport conferred by CONI, which Luca received it from the Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, in presence of the Minister of Sport Luca Lotti and of Luca Pancalli, president of the Italian Paralympic Committee.
This prize arrived after another prestigious one, that of October 25th, where Luca was awarded among the best riders in the world in the Grand Gala UCI in China.
Our land tells of sacrifice, determination and success, and for this reason on December 16th at the Curci Theater in Barletta we honored with our bouquets the women protagonists of the international prize Pugliesi nel mondo, of which we were the main sponsor.We were proud to award Maria Teresa Chirivì, head of marketing and international development at Atletico Madrid, who started her career from the province of Lecce to arrive at the Colchoneros’ court more than 10 years ago.
On December 17th we also joyfully welcomed the return to the track of the terrible guys of Free Runners who took part in the fourth edition of the Half “Marathon of the Cathedrals” in Giovinazzo: 1st and 2nd place for Pasquale Selvarolo and Luigi Catalano! Before them, the first to reach the finish line of the South Italy marathon were the handbike athletes accompanied by the Mayor of Giovinazzo Tommaso Depalma and led by Luca Mazzone.
Sports speak about some of the values that we believe are fundamental, sports as game and as educational model, as a challenge and cohesion.
For us the goal is a starting point and we are ready for a new year together with our guys!
