Livigno presented the CONI CPO. Mornati: 'closed a circle, it will be our added value'

The Olympic dream passes through Livigno. The new CONI Olympic Preparation Centre, at the service of Italian sport, was presented today in the Valtellina resort. The CPO, the result of the memorandum of understanding signed last June by CONI and the Livigno Tourist Promotion and Development Company, joins those of Acqua Acetosa (Rome), Formia and Tirrenia. With one particularity: it is the only one in Italy that allows athletic training at altitude and that will therefore permit the high altitude training of athletes of interest to Olympic and High Level Preparation.

The presentation was attended by the CONI Secretary General, Carlo Mornati, the Mayor of Livigno, Remo Galli, the Mayor of Bormio, Silvia Cavazzi, the President of the Tourist Promotion and Development Company of Livigno, Luca Moretti, the Head of the Olympic Preparation Office, Alessio Palombi the Head of the CONI Institute of Medicine and Sport Science, Giampiero Pastore, the IOC member and swimming champion, Federica Pellegrini, the athletes of the Olympic Club, Thomas Ceccon (Swimming), Nicolò Martinenghi (Swimming) and Michela Moioli (Snowboarding) and the athletes of various disciplines who orbit Livigno: Giacomo Bormolini (Telemark), Michele Bormolini (car on ice), Niccolò Colturi (Snowboard Cross), Nicolò Cusini (Cross-country skiing), Jole Galli (Skicross), Giulia Molinari (Triathlon), Veronica Silvestri (Cross-country skiing). Also present were Livigno's sports councillor Marina Claoti and Stefano Podini, curator and owner of the exhibition on Olympic torches set up in the Centre. Antonio Rossi, Undersecretary for Sport, Olympics 2026 and Great Events of the Lombardy Region, sent a video greeting.

'These new facilities are at the service of citizens and athletes,' explained Mayor Galli, 'we have represented the union and brotherhood of the Olympic logo. This centre is a very important achievement. Those who play sports know what respect, loyalty and teamwork mean".'Today we are celebrating athletics and all that it teaches,' added the Mayor of Bormio, Cavazzi. 'Together we are working to prepare for Milan-Cortina 2026: it is a team effort and we are. Bormio and Livigno: between us there is a healthy competition to present ourselves to the world as sporting excellence'.'A dream has come true,' said Undersecretary Rossi. 'The Centre will be a very important support point. Congratulations to all those who contributed to the realisation of the Centre'.

A great achievement for CONI. 'It is a special moment that starts from afar - the words of Secretary Mornati -. In 2013 we were talking about a CPO at altitude. Sport is very concrete: facts have led several Federations to go to Livigno. With Livigno we close a circle. Those who go to altitude go in search of the best: it is a privilege to have closed this agreement with Livigno. We will bring added value to a splendid Centre that is already a reference point for the area'.The CPO of Livigno was born in the Centro Sportivo Aquagranda and makes one of the biggest sport and wellness facilities in Europe, already used for the trainings and stages of several Italian National Teams, even more a reference point for CONI and its National Sport Federations. Thanks to the agreement signed between the Italian National Olympic Committee and Livigno's Tourist Promotion and Development Company, they will also be able to use the sports and accommodation facilities of the Valtellina municipality for rallies and training sessions at special prices and rates.The Olympic Preparation Centre, already used by athletics, football, swimming, winter sports and triathlon, will expand its offer - starting with the construction of an Olympic swimming pool in addition to the 25-metre pool - thus meeting the needs of different disciplines, with two objectives in the sights: the 2024 Paris Olympic Games and the 2026 Milan Cortina Winter Games, which will organise the Snowboard and Freestyle competitions in Livigno."With Livigno we complete the offer that CONI proposes to the Federations - explained Palombi -. There are the best possible conditions for training in our CPOs".

Illustrating the benefits of a high-altitude centre such as the Livigno CPO are Giampiero Pastore and Claudio Donatelli, athletic trainer for CONI and the FIGC, who offered a preview of the seminar "L'allenamento in quota" (here are the slides of the speech) that will be presented on 26 October at the CPO in Rome.'We will give athletes and coaches a very important support,' assured Pastore, who with the Institute he directs has signed many of the Azzurri's numerous successes at the last Olympic Games, 'a 360° transversal support.'Team sports have become endurance sports,' explained Donatelli, 'and working at altitude gives advantages. There is no right recipe for everyone: we will produce a complete and exhaustive range of assessments to meet the needs of every sport'.Exceptional testimonial of the Valtellina resort, Federica Pellegrini, who has built so many of her successes here. "It is a happy day for Livigno and for Italian sport - she said -. Sport that finds a fundamental home in the wanderings of a season. Good luck to everyone'.But also Michela Moioli and the other Italian Team members are linked to the CPO and this valley. "Livigno is my second home," she confessed, "Here you find peace. And here we will play at home at the Olympics: we are confident about the great work done and what will be done in Livigno'.In training camp at the Olympic Preparation Centre there are currently many of the Azzurri of swimming. "I have been coming to Livigno for 2-3 years," Ceccon recalled, "and for the first time I am doing three weeks: the benefits are subjective, but I feel the usefulness so much. The addition of the 50-metre pool is worth so much. It's a very good centre, it's very comfortable, the conditions are ideal. Martinenghi echoes: 'Walking through the centre of Livigno, one breathes a familiar air. I really like coming here, it is very useful to recharge one's batteries in view of important appointments. And then it brings good luck.On the other hand, the coach of the Under-21 football team, Paolo Nicolato, who discovered the centre only today, was satisfied with what he found. "Here there are all the characteristics we need to prepare for team sports competitions," said the coach. "There is everything we need, it is a modern centre.Merit so far goes to the investments made by the Tourist Board and the Municipality of Livigno. "They were difficult years, but we managed to make this an 'easy' and concrete centre - declared Moretti -. Today it is a starting point: this is the home of athletes and future Olympians. We are an excellence, we must show it'.
