05.03.2012, Coverciano/Firenze, Italia. Headquarters of the Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio (FIGC), Settore Tecnico. Official launch of the 11+ program for the coaching and physical trainer’s educational programs. Our friend Carlo Castagna has been instrumental in realizing this important cooperation.
With my friend Cony von Grebel, and thanks to the organization of Claudio Carlotti (Rehab & Fitness coach at ISOKINETIC) we were able to collect promotional material for the planned 11+ documentary. Former „azzurri“ international goalkeeper Gianluca Pagliuca and left winger Giuseppe Signori gave us interviews and showed again some of their great football skills on a training field at ISOKINETIC, Via Casteldebole, Bologna, Italy (11/4/11).
Two national players of the Italian women’s national team (Daniela Tavalazzi and Cristina Cassanelli) also participated to the filming with us in Bologna.
A two days meeting (1-2/4/11) with my friend Carlo Castagna in Coverciano, home of the Federazione Italiana Gioco Calcio (FIGC), where he regularly oversees the training of the top Italian referees and assistant referees. We’re finalizing a specific injury prevention program adapted to the needs of the match officials.
