The 1054ª-bis meeting of the CONI National Committee was held at the Foro Italico this morning following on from the meeting in Naples on 22 November. Financial contributions for National Sports Federations was the sole point of discussion. The Committee first approved the criteria defined by the dedicated Committee, establishing the new funding for National Sports Federations in 2017 (see table) for sport, as well as contributions for Human Resources, office space and sports facilities. The resolution was passed by the majority with a vote against cast by Abete. At the same time, President Malagò announced that the Commission has fulfilled its duties and is therefore dissolved.
The Committee, acting on a proposal from the Meritorious Sports Commission, then allocated "motu proprio" the Collare d'Oro to Gianmarco Tamberi and the Palma d'Oro to cycling coach Edoardo Salvoldi. Both will be awarded on 19 December during the Cerimonia per i Collari held in the CONI Salone d'Onore at 11:30 in the presence of Prime Minister Matteo Renzi with guests of honour Gianluigi Buffon and Francesca Porcellato presenting the awards. After addressing a long list of other organisational and administrative issues, and having taken the relevant resolutions, the Committee called an end to proceedings at 10:35.
