Excellence, passion, commitment, but also environmental sustainability and love for the marine ecosystem: these values, shared by the Youth America's Cup and UniCredit, have inspired Route to Barcelona.

Remo Taricani, Deputy Head of Italy di UniCredit, commented:


"This project is born with the aim of bringing young people closer to sailing and, more generally, to sport as a universal language. As a matter of fact, Route to Barcelona is an initiative of great social and educational value, which reinforce our role as naming partner of the Youth America's Cup. Our Bank has always supported young people and communities, promoting the values of inclusion and sport, fundamental in a society that wants to be increasingly fair and inclusive".
