Italian Swimming Federation

History of FIN

Costitution

The birth of the Federation was preceded by the activity of different Rari Nantes clubs, the first of which was founded in Rome, located on the Tiber, by Achilles Santoni, from Trento, on 15 August 1891. The first Italian championship took place on lake Bracciano, on 14 August 1898. The winner of the mile was the 18 year-old Milanese Arturo Saltarini. In 1899 the Pioneering Swimming College was established in Como, which later on 23 May 1900, gave rise to the Italian Rari Nantes Federation (FIRN) which managed swimming activities in Italy for a long time. Finally, on 28 October 1928, when the CONI (Italian National Olympic Committee) was founded, the name was changed to "Italian Swimming Federation" (FIN). The Federation is listed in Law no. 426 of 16/02/1942.
