Italian Winter Sports Federation

History of FISI

Costitution

The Italian Union of Ski Clubs (USCI) was founded in Turin, in 1908, by Paolo Kind, uniting three clubs. Paolo Kind, who became its president, was son of the Adolfo who was responsible for the introduction and popularisation of skiing in Italy and who, on 21 December 1901, had formed the Turin Ski Club. The organisation did not last long and was replaced on 23 October 1913 by a new organisation, the Italian Ski Federation, established in Milan and presided over by Gustavo Engelman. Although this initiative was not very successful and was re-launched on 10 October 1920 by Alberto Bonacossa, who was also the first president, with the establishment in Milan of the Italian Federation of Skiing (FIS). In 1933, with the takeover of skating and ice hockey as well as bobsleigh (skeleton), the name was changed to Italian Winter Sports Federation (FISI). In 1933, with the takeover of skating and ice hockey as well as bobsleigh and skeleton, the name was changed to Italian Winter Sports Federation (FISI). In 1946 the two disciplines on ice finally left the FISI and formed two separate associations. They were reunited later in the Italian Federation of Ice Sports (FISG). The Federation is listed in Law no. 426 of 16/02/1942.
