Main activity during the project took place in Turin and Cirié, Italy: as soon as particpants came to Italy, they were acquainted with UISP members and with their activities. Workshops and round tables have been organised on no violence and ultras support in different sport activities and alternative sports without fights and violence. Moreover, in an event, kids were divided into groups and asked to create banners to express their ideas on fairplay and no violence, using their creativity. Representatives of each group showed the banners and commented for the public important messages on respect and fairplay in sport. Leaders of Bulgarian and Romanian groups, as well as Italians, prepared some presentations in order to make their activity and their country known to all participants. Participants shared experiences and ideas and discussed future opportunities of cooperation. They focused on youth sport as an instrument of integration and violence prevention. Football and volleyball tournaments were organised with mixed teams, without distinction of age, sex and country. Several cultural moments were organised in addition to a sightseeing of Turin with its monuments and its famous places, participants visited “Reggia di Venaria Reale”, the Savoy royal residence recently renovated, comparable to the French royal residence of Versailles and claimed world heritage of mankind by UNESCO. As media to disseminate the ideas of this project, partners created a website, a CD-Rom and a brochure to communicate a correct life style, non violence and non discrimination.
Project started in October 2007 and concluded in April 2008
