UniCredit and FISPES together once again at the World Para Athletics Grand Prix Jesolo Italian Open to promote sport as a means of inclusion and personal growth through challenges. This initiative is part of a broad portfolio of tangible actions that our bank carries out to give support to the communities in which we operate.

Organized by FISPES with UniCredit Official Sponsor, the Jesolo Grand Prix, third stage of the world circuit after Dubai and Tunis, was held from Friday, March 22, to Sunday, March 24, involving the best 400 athletes from 53 nations.

We are thrilled to have once again partnered with FISPES for this edition of the Italian Open: with great competition and great athletes.

 

A sporting event and at the same time an opportunity to confirm sport as a heritage of values.

 

We experienced 3 days of passion, energy and inclusion, and today, as UniCredit, we are proud to share this success.

Many were the stars of these 3 intense days of competition with 21 Italian records. We are excited about the results achieved by the athletes of the Federation but, above all, we are proud of the teamwork done by athletes, technicians, doctors and staff to reach this goal. We at UniCredit are always ready to run alongside the Federation, convinced supporters of this great and unsurpassable team since we embarked on this journey with FISPES in 2021.

Representing us was Renzo Chervatin, Head of Territorial Development East, who confirmed UniCredit and FISPES' common vision of sport as a source of sharing and inclusion, thanking the President and the Federation for all activities, which often actively involve colleagues from all over Italy.

In Jesolo, we also met many of the athletes whose stories were intertwined with ours, such as Alessandro Ossola, who in 2022 at the Absolute Track and Field Championships in Concesio told us how sport has helped him face many challenges, and Davide Bartolo Morana, who enthusiastically took part, along with Alessandro, in the All for One event, organized in Rome with the support of UniCredit, which allowed 100 participants to experience Paralympic sports firsthand.
