The presentation of Napoli 2019 took place this morning at Foro Italico in Rome during the Italian Open 2019. The “Lounge Fit – Sport e Salute” hosted, among the others, the President of Regione Campania Vincezo De Luca, the Extraordinary Commissioner for Napoli 2019 Gianluca Basile, the Undersecretary Giancarlo Giorgetti, the President of the Italian Tennis Federation Angelo Binaghi and the President of CUSI Lorenzo Lentini.
“We have been insane, brave, but also confident in our strengths. Now we have the chance to demonstrate that the South of our country is characterized not only by its well known mockery, but also by rigor, meeting the challenge of efficiency – said Vinceno De Luca, who added – I want to say thank you to Giorgetti for the extraordinary contribution he gave us to make this event take off: A year ago we got stuck, but in Giorgetti we found an attentive and coordinated partner with the orientation of Regione Campania: Those who invest, decide and go on”. The Commissioner Basile echoes: “Now everyone wants to come to Naples. We had to close the registrations. We expect 128 participating countries and 9000 athletes. We have worked on different aspects – he stressed – not only on the organizational front of the sporting event, but also to refurbish important Neapolitan venues such as San Paolo Stadium, and other venues in the rest of the territory, thanks to Regione Campania’s 270 million investment. We have worked a small miracle”
