Yesterday (10 November) at Slatina the Sports Lyceum of Inter Campus Romania was inaugurated, the programme that uses the game of football as an instrument of social integration, developed by FC Internazionale in collaboration with Pirelli and the New Community Association.
Those attending the ceremony included Enrico Malerba, CEO of Pirelli Tyre Romania, Darius Diaclov, Mayor of Slatina, Aldo Montinaro, technical director of Inter Campus and Don Gino Rigoldi, president of the New Community.
“For Pirelli, after substantial investments in the Slatina production centre, to participate in the improvement of the local community’s social situation is a moral duty. The people who work for Pirelli live in Slatina, so it is right that we contribute to the development of their city. Through this project, we wanted to help all the children, both those who are well-off and those less so”, declared Enrico Malerba, CEO of Pirelli Tyres Romania.
“Pirelli is an example of commitment in the social and sporting life of Slatina”, said Darius Dialcov, Mayor of the city. “They train and educate the young generation, help them to develop themselves. I am pleased to see that 50 children from Slatina have been rewarded in this way”.
It was Christian Chivu who opened the 2009-2010 season of Inter Campus Romania, the Inter champion and Rumanian national player who is the star testimonial of this initiative, which aims at the social integration of boys from eight to 14 years-old through the activity and values of the sport.
