Cortina D’ampezzo



E ‘was presented Saturday 14 in Rome, at the Board Room of CONI at the Foro Italico, the convention that will work for the biennium 2015/2016 the Italian Federation of Archery and the Municipality of Cortina d’Ampezzo.
The Convention “Fitarco City Partner” was approved last Tuesday, February 10 in the Municipal Council of Cortina d’Ampezzo and was made official today, at 12:30, in the course of the Federal Council by the Federal President Mario FITARCO Scarzella, the Mayor of Cortina d ‘Ampezzo Andrea Franceschi, the presence of the Secretary General of CONI Roberto Fabbricini.

President Mario Fitarco Scarzella thanked the Mayor of Cortina and the Director Oscar De Pellegrin who started the idea of ​​a collaboration: “I am very happy to announce to the Council and to the world of archery that the City of Cortina and the Federation have created a convention for 2015 and 2016 that we are confident will bring benefits to both. I thank the Mayor Andrea Franceschi and Oscar De Pellegrin for giving life to this idea which was achieved on 10 February. The Federal Council has already approved the award of the Italian Archery Championship which will be hosted in Cortina in 2016 and we are already working to introduce and support the candidature of Cortina for the World Championships campaign of 2018. After the great success at the world of 2000 would be a comeback for the archery International in a wonderful place. ”

The Mayor of Cortina d’Ampezzo Andrea Franceschi has received the national team custom and thanked the Fitarco to have suffered believed in the possibility of a fruitful collaboration: “It all started from a chat with the director and Paralympic champion Oscar De Pellegrin. The FITARCO Federation is a serious and dynamic, composed of people authoritative and reliable. The presence of Oscar is then for us citizens of the province of Belluno a guarantee of results. I like to stress that the importance that may hold the convention in terms of sponsorship and visibility that will bring the great events that bring in Cortina, consider fundamental the development of projects related to the activity with the schools and the removal of barriers architectural, very complex subject especially for those who live in a mountain landscape like ours. What we started with Fitarco is the beginning of a journey that will certainly be beneficial to all of our territory. ”

First author of the convention was the Federal Councillor Oscar De Pellegrin, Belluno and Paralympic champion in London in 2012: “It ‘a great pride to have completed this agreement with an area I know well and I’ve always tried to honor in my life athlete. Cortina is the Queen of the Dolomites, universal heritage and is nice to carry out projects important for both realities. The Fitarco and Cortina are two excellent and I really hope that this path together lead us away. ”

The Secretary General of CONI Roberto Fabbricini: “We know the difficulties of management who have the Federations, as well as the Olympic Committee, especially with regard to financial management. I am therefore very pleased with this agreement between Fitarco and Cortina. The President Scarzella there is always very close and does a great job to keep the name of Italian sport.
I thank the Mayor of Cortina that is right to remember, was the first Italian Olympic city with the winter edition of 1956 and subsequently has always been known for being a city very close to the sports world by hosting major national and international events. It was a shame to have lost the bid for the World Cup ski due to some political games, but I have faith in the potential of Cortina as the stage of the sport, not only for skiing. It is in fact this great opening to archery, you will be the forerunner in this direction and I hope that your example will be followed by others. Just this week we have taken the first important steps to the candidacy of Rome in 2024 and what will be done in Cortina, with the possibility of organizing a World Championship, is also an aid for the Olympic bid. ”

To go into detail, the basis of the agreement between Fitarco and Municipality of Cortina d’Ampezzo is the assignment of the Italian Field Archery Championships in 2016 to the town of Cortina, one of the manifestations National Fitarco that bring the largest number of athletes for a total of over 1000 daily attendance and the support and cooperation for the candidacy of Cortina as the site of the World Archery Championships 2018, an event that would bring more than 35 National delegations from around the world.
Two events that will make the most of the gorgeous scenery of the Dolomites, whereas the archery is a sport 100% ecological and that, at the events, will bring a considerable number of visitors in the summer months and give great visibility through Steps television and web that accompany all the events organized by the Federation.

The Federation has also committed to bring in 2016 in Cortina at least one meeting of the National Field Archery, which can then “test the waters” in the hope of then having to compete in these same scenarios for the World Cup in 2018.

Among the most important components of the Convention also other initiatives that will have a major effect on the territory and population of Cortina d’Ampezzo. We speak mainly of initiatives involving the Federal Councillor Oscar De Pellegrin, which will start with the City and schools a project that enhances the relationship “sport, youth and school” and will contribute experience with regard to the removal of architectural barriers.

The Convention also provides that the logo of Cortina d’Ampezzo will turn to the world through the national team FITARCO. Olympic and Paralympic teams, which this year will be engaged in their respective World Championships which is giving away passes to the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio in 2016, the National Youth and the National Field Archery and 3D will proudly the new blue jacket with logo screen printed on the chest. The calendar includes over 20 international trips in the various continents and everywhere the mark of Cortina will be prominently displayed on clothing from Italian race of archers, accustomed to excel in all disciplines and specialties.

The image of Cortina d’Ampezzo will have significant visibility even during the National Championships organized by the Italian Federation of Archery. 10 will be the major events dedicated to target archery (Olympic and Paralympic), the shot campaign, the specialty of 3D and youth competitions that will be played and hosted around the Bel Paese.
In any Championship the beautiful city dolomite will have its visibility on the race and through the images that will be broadcast live streaming from Youarco, the official channel on the platform FITARCO youtube.

Cortina has been protagonist of the international archery, organizing a historic edition of the World Championships Field Archery in 2000. The participants still remember the helicopter carrying the straw targets on the race set up in the renowned ski slopes of Cortina.
On that occasion Italy won the world title with Olympic Champion Michele Frangilli (in the recurve division) and the women’s team title, in addition to silver individual compound Rosanna Sword and the individual bronze curved Cristina Ioriatti.

Cortina, Queen of the Dolomites, for its landscape heritage, tourism and image. Cortina and its history: Olympic city in 1956, a showcase of great sporting events, places able to guard their traditions with an eye to the future. At 1,224 meters above sea level is immersed in a setting of incomparable beauty, declared a UNESCO World Natural Heritage. Only Italian resort part of the Best of the Alps, Cortina has the sport – and not just the winter – in their DNA. 15 years after the first exciting encounter, is excited to return to host a discipline with which he feels particularly in synergy.

Some examples?

In the ‘bunker’ Hansi Baumgartner … In an old military bunker of World War II, hidden above Mühlbach. Along hundreds of meters of shelves where are preserved and refined cheeses ranging from the best restaurants in Italy and beyond. Yes,

For the refinement of the cheese the final product depends on many components: the breeds of cows, the grass, weather conditions, the acidity or the temperature and humidity in the stage of maturation. The cheeses here are derived from the best natural mixture of fresh herbs growing on the mountain huts. The temperature and humidity inside the bunker is ideal for proper development of microorganisms and spores maturing cheese. Every day the forms must be turned and brushed – almost caressed – and then at the end of the process, which can last several months, come and bring in the dairy shop Degust in nearby Varna.

She cooks on an old wood-fired stove. Another specialty is the sumptuous Kaiserschmarren (a sweet omelette chopped). Perhaps the secret of kitchen Martha is that it uses the fresh milk of cows that graze in the summer out of the door in Fane Alm (and which in winter are further downstream in the stables). From the end of April, the hut Gattererhütte will again open to hikers hungry and Wednesday evenings will be back on the day of the dumplings, mind winter is open occasionally on request.

But Fane is also the realm of delicious cheeses from goat and cow, including Valler Gold.Nella summer is produced in the hut Kuttnhütte, next to the hamlet fairytale, and served to availability.

A gourmet gem hiding in the village of Vandoies.
