Italian Handball Federation

 

History of FIGH

Costitution

A Handball Federation “not yet affiliated with CONI”, represented by Aurelio Chiappero took part, only with a consultative vote, in CONI’s first elective Conference of 27 July 1946. In actual fact, handball had already been on the Italian scene, albeit sporadically, since 1940. A revival came with the establishment of the Committee for the Promotion of Handball, in Rome only in 1966.

Eugenio Enrile was Chairman of the Committee and Chiappero the Secretary. The deed of constitution of the Italian Handball Federation was drawn up on 20 December 1969: Mario Costantini presided over the new body and Chiappero acted as Secretary. When it became an officially recognised sport on 22 December 1971, the FIGH joined CONI as an affiliated member on 19 December 1974, becoming official at the 57th National Board on 22 February 1979.
