Sport’s finest gather under the stars for the grand finale of the XXVI Fair Play Menarini International Award

FLORENCE, 8th July 2022 – Intense emotions and immense satisfaction were in the air during the final event of the XXVI Fair Play Menarini International Award. Yesterday evening, the award ceremony for the winners of the 2022 edition in Castiglion Fiorentino (Arezzo) drew an enjoyable end to this celebration of the values of sportsmanship, organised by the Fair Play Menarini Foundation.

Ethics, loyalty and respect once more took centre stage to be celebrated through the sporting personalities who, as of today, have officially become ambassadors for the message of the Award. This prestigious accolade once again provided an extraordinary opportunity to acknowledge and share the best of sporting culture, whilst flying the flag for universal ideals, success stories, altruism and hope, the fight against discrimination, and friendship despite differences.

“We are pleased to have rewarded champions who, during their careers, have been the standard bearers of very important principles, such as ethics, loyalty and respect” – stated Lucia and Alberto Giovanni Aleotti, shareholders and Board Members of Menarini – “Inspired by these past few days, we look forward to seeing you at the next edition so that we may continue to elevate the values of fair play ever higher.”

The wonderful final evening of this celebration of fair play, hosted by Lorenzo Dallari and Rachele Sangiuliano and broadcast live on Sportitalia, was made all the brighter for the dazzling light of “la Divina” Federica Pellegrini, winner of the first Olympic gold in Italian swimming history and the eternal pride of the national sport scene. A trio of football giants stepped out onto the stage in Castiglion Fiorentino, including former heroes of the pitch Roberto Donadoni and Massimo Ambrosini.
