On Wednesday 16 December in Trento, at 8.30 p.m. at the Auditorium of the Faculty of Arts, Ondra, Molmenti and Hozknecht and Manolo introduced by Roberto Mantovani, talk about developing as people and developing relationships through athletic activity.

Sport is about a whole host of things. It is a concentrate and an expression of a wide range of values, some of which differ from one another. It’s not all physical, it’s not just about effort or fatigue. Practising sport means interacting with others and thereby growing, progressing, within ourselves and vis-à-vis the rest of the world and those who exist in it along with us, sometimes in the guise of adversary, others as a friend, a helping hand, a spectator, and invariably as a reflection of our personal progress towards maturity. This, too, is discipline. This, too, is a challenge, and not one of the simplest, either.

Just ask the top sport climber Adam Ondra. Or the K1 Olympic gold medallist Daniele Molmenti. Or Lorenzo Holzknecht, a ski mountaineer for Italy. Three outstanding, world-class athletes, who will be speaking on the subject on Monday 16 December in the Auditorium of the Faculty of Arts of Trento University, at 8.30 p.m., in an encounter organised by Montura and Wildinis within the framework of the Winter Universiade 2013, an event in which both brands are a partner.

The meeting, entitled Lo sport, opportunità di conoscenza – Gli atleti Montura raccontano lo sport come mezzo di crescita personale e relazionale (Sport, an opportunity for knowledge  - Montura athletes describe sport as a means towards developing as people and developing relationships), will be introduced by Roberto Mantovani, a well-known journalist in the sector, accompanied by a climber who is a living legend: Maurizio Zanolla, better known as Manolo, will be comparing his own experience with that of younger sportsmen and women.
