It’s a great honor for the Foundation to announce the entry into the prestigious “Shriver Society”, reserved for a selected group of Special Olympics’ donors. Thanks to all the staff of Special Olympics for this great recognition! https://www.specialolympics.org/about/partners-of-the-movement/major-donors-family-foundations
The Foundation Varaldo Di Pietro want to thank those who wanted to share the #LatinaSolidale project and made a donation. The 8,407.00 euros raised were donated to these associations: – Associazione Valentina Onlus– AIDO Sezione Provinciale Latina– AVO Associazione Volontari Ospedalieri Onlus– LILT Latina Each contribution is very important and precious considering the period of health emergency that we are going through.
Together with you we want to send a message of hope, concretely supporting those who work and fight every day to guarantee our health, our future and that of our children: doctors, nurses, health employees. We chose to support the “Santa Maria Goretti” hospital in Latina, the territorial health coordination center for the COVID-19 emergency.
The Monument to Inclusion commissioned by our Foundation and created by the artist Giovanna Campoli with the intent to commemorate and celebrate the figure of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founder of Special Olympics, was inaugurated at the San Marco Park in Latina (ITALY), ten years after her death.
An important and prestigious award for Javier Zanetti. The Nerazzurri Vice President received the “Varaldo Di Pietro” Patron of Sport prize for 2019 in the Executive Hall of San Siro, with the award sponsored by the Italian National Olympic Committee and the National Order of Journalists.
“Zanetti a true model in terms of sport style, both in field and out”, as said by Gianni Di Pietro president of the “Varaldo Di Pietro” Foundation
The landscapes have changed, as have the protagonists and the scale of the event, but the ‘Mecenate dello Sport’ has never given up its beliefs and faith in its tenets: that of adequately recognising the contributions of those men and women who encapsulate the highest values in the sporting world in all its various forms.
He is a truly champion in and out of the field. Always a supporter of the Inclusion Revolution, starting with sport. Javier Zanetti, historic Inter captain has always participated in inclusive activities, not only about sport, since 2011 when he was the Campaign against Discrimination testimonial.
The sport values are like the letters of the alphabet, they have to be taught to children. Sport and value have become two of new mates for millions of children around the world. Italy included. This is the project promoted by Wada – the world anti-doping agency – which has created a kit for schools entitled “The values of sport in every class“.
