Thus the president of the FIGC, Gabriele Gravina, referring to the women’s national team next to compete in the European Championships, on the sidelines of the presentation of the “Children Before Players” guide with Unicef on the promotion of the rights of children and adolescents in sport.
“We want to continue on this path devoted to the continuous growth of the movement – continued Gravina -. The transition to professionalism, last July 1, is a civilization conquest of our world and, allow me, also of the country.
We want to spread the culture of equal dignity more and more but we must not forget what is happening in other countries, where the government authorities have pushed hard to ensure that there is a constant growth of the women’s movement.
