History of FISG

Costitution

The first organization coordinating ice sports in Italy was the Italian Skating Federation (FIP), founded in Milan on 6 January 1914. After the inauguration of the first indoor facility in Italy (which took place in Milan on 28 December 1923), the Italian Ice Hockey Federation (FIHG) was established in 1924 to regulate the discipline of hockey, which had landed in Italy in 1911 with the Bobsled Club of Italy being founded in 1925. The three groups joined in September 1926, founding the Italian Ice Sports Federation (FISG) and Count Alberto Bonacossa was elected as president. The FISG was working independently until 1933, when its disciplines, with the transfer of the Federations to Rome, were merged into the Italian Winter Sports Federation. At the end of the war, in 1946, the hockey and skating organisation emerged from the FISI to constitute two different organisations: the Italian Ice Hockey Federation and the Italian Ice Skating Federation. On 6 September 1952, in Verona, both federations merged definitively with the creation of the Italian Ice Sports Federation.
