Italian Target Shooting Federation

History of FITAV

Costitution

Though the first competitions with launched targets had been held in Italy since the middle of last century, the official acts of the Federation began on 4 August 1926, the day of the foundation of the Italian Clay Pigeon Shooting Federation (FITPA), based in Rome. Ettore Stace was the promoter of the initiative, first an excellent shooter and later president. The following month the Federation was recognised by the Ministry of National Economy and in 1927 became part of CONI, taking the name of the Italian Target Shooting Federation (FITAV). The Federation is listed in Law no. 426 of 16/02/1942.

Originally (1926), Federazione Italiana Tiro al Piccione d'Argilla (FITPA or “Italian Clay Pigeon Shooting Federation”), and since 1927, Federazione Italiana Tiro a Volo (FITAV or “Italian Target Shooting Federation”).
