Team Young Italy

#TeamYoungItalyUnipolSai new team presentation

Once again UnipolSai Assicurazioni will be Title sponsor of Team Young Italy UnipolSai, the group of young athletes created by the Company and headed by Federica Pellegrini, who represent excellence and the distinctive values of Italian sport around the world: sacrifice, passion, dedication and the constant pursuit of quality and results in performance. The announcement was made during the press conference held by CONI in the presence of Carlo Cimbri, Group CEO Unipol, Giovanni Malagò, CONI President, and key members of the team: Federica Pellegrini (swimming), Gregorio Paltrinieri (swimming), Carlotta Ferlito (gymnastics), Alessia Trost (athletics – high jump) and new entry Arianna Fontana (short track skater and flag bearer at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics). The team is completed by three athletes namely Andrea Fondelli (water polo) and another two new members, Riccardo Bagaini (athletics), the promising Italian Paralympic sprinter, and Simone Giannelli (volleyball), the young setter of the Italian national team.

This means the new Team Young Italy UnipolSai will include new disciplines, representing both winter and Paralympic sports.

Following the two‐year 2015‐2016 agreement, marked by the impressive sports results of the Team at an Italian, European and international level, the new project envisages UnipolSai Assicurazioni’s support for the athletes over the 20172020 period.
