Two weeks ago I were in Monza, European Day Of Integrated Sport. I really liked it. The hotels were amazing, very comofortable and nice. Food was very good, one of the best food I've ever tasted. We all really liked it. The main day of the event was very great. Lithuanian team learned karate performance in less than an hour, which was a litlle unexpected but very useful. People who organised the event was very proffesional because a few people from our team didn't have kimono's but they got in like 15min. For me, it was an amazing experience to see that everyone can do sports, from kids, to seniors and people who has a genetic disorder. Everything were organised wvery well and eveything was proffesional. The only thing we were a litlle annoyed by is that the bus to leave from hotel were very late. But this is the only negative thing.
We also really liked the last day in Milan because we saw many thing and visited a few famous places in one day. We hope to see you next year.
Thank you, again.
Sorry I have been busy catching up on my back log but would like to say a huge thank you for the a brilliant event. After the Friday day hick up Saturday was brilliant day for everyone. I would also like to say thank you to Carmelo and his team at Brindisi. They were great help and lovely people. I have sent you some photos through google drive for you to look at. You may be able to use them for your project but I know there was professional camera man and photographer taking photos too at the event.
I will be disseminating the event on our website.
Many thanks and regards
Here is another message from somebody in my team, Mioara Stanica wrote this for you:

Ho incontrato persone eccezioali,che hanno fatto sentirni davero bene!Ringrazio Alessio e Indre,due persone meravigliose"
Have a great day!

E' stato un successo degno dei grandi avvenimenti.
Oggi, molti, troppi parlano del sociale, ma pochi veramente pochi hanno il coraggio di grandi azioni.
La data del 23 maggio per European Day of Integrated Sport deve essere incorniciata per futura memoria.
I had the honor to be a part not only of a team that was competing for a piece of a metal. I had the honor to be part of an IDEA, of a GREAT VISION that all people will be ABLE for everything. I really had great lessons, LIFE lessons, that are difficult to be described in a few lines. The final conclusion from all this effort is that everything is possible. There is no ability or disability. THERE IS ONLY "I WANT" AND "I DON'T WANT". If you want, then somehow you can make it . Only one thing is necessary.... STRONG HEART.... We, all together (and this is where power is), have proved that disability is a term that in the future may not be applied on people. ALL OF US, TOGETHER, WON THE RIGHT TO BE EQUAL IN LIFE!!!
Torino team made an excellent job. But the most important thing is that you, Gianluca, Francesca, Eliza( sorry from a lot of people for not mentioning their names) offered us your heartcoming smile..........you were not just a typical team escort, you became our friend by giving us the chance to discover the real way of having fun in Torino. When everybody was in "I am done" mood, YOU were starting all over again..............thanks to you we were not typical tourists in your more than beautiful city. Even for a few hours we became "Torinians"!!!!!!!!.............Personally I loved my Torinian transformation!!!!!! For once more and from the deep, deepest bottom of my heart.......sincerelly THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!
On behalf of STEP Romania and the participants that represented our organization we want to thank you for the incredible event you organized. There is absolutely no book, internet site or media material that can show us what integrated sport is and what it stands for. The only way to truly understand it is to be part of it and we are were part of it, for this we send a big THANK YOU for CSEN and all the other partners from the 12 countries involved.
In all the 3 locations Grosseto, Torino, Aosta our delegations felt like at home, the hospitality, commitment and general joyful spirit of the people involved made us all feel that we belong to a great family.
For our organization this was only the beginning, as we returned home not only with great memories and gained experience, but with a lot of ideas, plans and partnerships for future projects and activities in the field of sport in general and Integrated Sports in Particular.
We send another THANK YOU to the volunteers that helped us during the activities.
Before arriving to Grosseto, we dind't know what to expect. We had information about the sport disciplines, the program, other participants, logistics etc., but also we had fears regarding the whole experience. From the moment we met the staff coordinated by Alessio Pernazza all the fears dissappeard and we didn't felt like guests but we felt like friends.
The whole experience and the development of the activities that took place there exceeded our expectations. The Baskin event offered us the possibility to explore two different approaches on Integrated Sport: a social approach and a competitive approach.The "Trio Agility Dog" event was something completely new and innovative that had a great positive impact on our participants.
The conference and group debate we had with all the delegations at the end of the activities helped us understand better the concept and benefits of Integrated Sports.
We want to thank you for all of this and hope that future collaborations that we established in Grosseto and plans for the future to be accomplished as soon as possible.
Once again THANK YOU, we came as guests and left as friends!
the german team has reached the home very well.
So let me say once more a big “thank you” to you an and your excellent team from Aosta. We came as stranger to Aosta and leave as friends!
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Everything was perfect. Your Torino Team is Great!!! They took care of us perfectly. Good Job!!!
