Statement from the National Committee

FORO1This morning the 1051st meeting of the CONI National Committee was held at the Foro Italico, where proceedings began to approve the minutes of the meeting concerning the previous meeting on 17th July. In its statements, President Malagò congratulated new Committee member Ivo Ferriani on being elected as an IOC member during the Rio de Janeiro meeting. The President also commented on the positive and encouraging results obtained by Italy at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. The entire Committee congratulated the team and the Head of the Delegation, Carlo Mornati, who produced his report. Malagò then moved on to update the Committee on Rome's 2024 bid in anticipation of the upcoming meeting with the mayor of Rome, Virginia Raggi. Two institutional commitments were formalised: the start of the school year, on Monday 19th September in Sondrio with some athletes and medallists from Rio taking part; the flag handover ceremony by the bearers Federica Pellegrini and Martina Caironi alongside all the Olympic and Paralympic medallists scheduled for 12pm 28th September at the Quirinal. For the very first time, athletes who came fourth will also be invited to attend.


The Committee then heard the findings from CONI's legal office that reported the details of the latest developments concerning Federnuoto.

With regard to Federugby, President Malagò clarified that the approval of the budget, on the agenda of the Federal Council for 15th September, is an indispensable condition for holding the Elective Assembly scheduled for 17th September. Concerning President Barelli's resignation from the Committee, the Committee proposed to the National Council the co-option pursuant to article 7, paragraph 8 of the CONI statute of President Renato Di Rocco, the first of the non-elected in the elective National Council of 19th February 2013.
