Nowadays Stramilano is not just a run, but an exemplification of what Milano wants to be: an open and sympathetic city that works, where sport and spirit are central themes” commented Giuseppe Sala, Mayor of Milano.

Among the speakers, Roberta Guaineri, Councillor for Sports of the municipality of Milan, Antonio Rossi, Councillor for Sports of Lombardy Region, who will run for Stramilano together with the Union for blind and partially-sighted people: “Everyone can run for 10km, together with each own rhythm in a spirit of party” says Rossi, Oreste Perri, Chairman of Coni Lombardy, Maurizio Riccò, General Brigadier Military Army and Roberto Boccaccio, Chief of Staff of the interregional command Police “Pastrengo”.

To conclude the speech of Giusy Versace, the Paralympic athlete “I’m really thrilled to be the sponsor of Stramilano, one of the most historic and copious demonstration with the highest number of records in Italy. Sport brings sweat, strain and emotions, party, but at first, lots of smiles. Let’s tear down the mental boundaries and later the architectural ones: Stramilano is a moment of integration for families, disabled…. Everyone!” commented Giusy VersaceI’m looking forward to participate, good luck to all the participants”.

During the presentation of the event, at Palazzo Marino, in Milan, it has been remembered Fabio Cappello, the young runner who passed away last year, due to a sudden illness, close to the finish line of Stramilano.
