Alessandro and Roberto Calcaterra: ”We wanted to create an event that becomes a reference and an agonistic competition. We have chosen Civitavecchia because it is our city, where we were born, where we grew up and where we became athletes.
The last thought of the Calcaterra brothers is for the young participants in the Waterpolo Challenge: give the maximum and whatever the final result , you will win. Because victory is learning, is the understanding and friendship with your team-mates, it is a trip and getting here means winning”.
“We are happy, in name of the whole society – declares Edgardo Azzopardi, special delegate for institutional relations of Port Mobility - to support events like this, able to combine sport, participation and healthy competition. Example and pride for Civitavecchia”.
“Also this year – says to end up Vincenzo Cacciaglia, general director of Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio of Civitavecchia – the Foundation has decided to sponsor this event, considered of great social value. Young people need to believe in healthy values such as those generally provided by sport”.
