JUMP and Atletica Grosseto Banca Tema are the organizers for 16th International Meeting Città di Grosseto, which will see the participation of many young italian and international talents. A meeting which motto would be smiling to each and every one life experience, and will be held on next 16th June 2022.

“A Smile for Life” is the sentiment of many young athletes and of whoever thinks that results come with just work and sacrifice with no shortcuts, willing to win with respect of competitors, of anybody made unlucky events to be the beginning of a new life, with no distinction about gender, skin colour, religion.

Alfio Giomi tells, “A Smile for Life” is born from Ambra Sabatini resurrence to life after her car accident, a girl that found the strength to smile and encourage everybody in her hospital room, while she would have to face a future life without a leg.

“A Smile for Life” is the link between past and present red with new strategies in term of digital communication and a new managerial lead of the International Meeting Città di Grosseto. A link that bounds the protagonists of the XVI th edition and enable a new way of interpreting sports and its limits.

As a matter of relevance the presence of few female stars of italian athletics, Larissa Iapichino and Nadia Battocletti are just two the most relevant. Beyond the events belonging to the World Athletics Continental Tour – Challenger (ranking D), the organizers have introduced a paralympic event, as 100 T63, which will be a real witness of respect of the territory (Monte Argentario Municipality, Grosseto Province, Toscany Region) for Ambra Sabatini and for every person succeded in transforming difficult moments if life lessons. Ambra and her national team companions Monica Contrafatto and Martina Caironi will be also present as in the Olympic Tokyo 2020 final.

For this reason also Pietro Mennea Foundation will be endorsing the International Meeting Città di Grosseto. And the Foundation has been put in place with the purpose of keeping to transmit sports values to our young people.

Given these premises and these values a new Logo has been studied for the event, a “G” which embrace sports and “youngsters” of any age.

Moreover a new set of Social media & Web channels have been launched: Instagram @GrossetoMeeting FB GrossetoMeeting, www.grossetomeeting.com where you will see contacts and program of the meeting.
