Il Mondiale in Piazza, “day 2”
Ancona Municipality had to supply more seats in Piazza del Plebiscito, the square where the second evening of the talk show “Il Mondiale in Piazza” (lit.‘The World Championship at the Square’) took place yesterday. We remind you that such event has been organized by Ancona Panathlon Club, on the occasion of Adria Ferries ORC World Championship 2013, in order to establish a connection between Marina Dorica and the city.
The second appointment at the square, also known as Piazza del Papa, was opened by the fascinating music played by a trio, composed of Antonio Del Sordo (acoustic guitarist), Roberto Gazzani (contrabassist), and Alessandro Ferrato (percussionist). While the audience, doubled since the night before, was taking seats, the talk show began. The host Andrea Carloni welcomed on the stage Commander Mauro Panarello (Palinuro’s Captain), Andrea Guidotti (Ancona’s Sport Assessor), Moreno Clementi (President of Marina Dorica), Romano De Angelis (Panathlon International), Germano Peschini (Vice-president of CONI Marche), and Paolo Cori, ORC Worlds 2013’s planner and speaker.
After updating the ranking, once the long regatta was over, and discussing about the 109 participating boats’ evolutions, the main moments of the race have been projected on a big screen, in the square. It was also taken a moment to pay respects to the boat Palinuro, berthed at Ancona harbour and already visited by thousands of people.
An interesting idea also came up, concerning the realization of a Sport Center in Palombina, which would give the opportunity to start a Sailing school and learn practicing all aquatic sports in general.
Tonight, Thursday - weather permitting – the third evening at the square with new guests: Carlo Ondedei (President of X Zona FIV), Riccardo Galassi (Vice-president of Ancona Panathlon Club), Gianfranco Iacobone (Ancona Assonautica’s Delegate), Sandro Spaziani (Sailboater of Azzurra-Moro Venezia –Luna Rossa), Paolo Mariotti (Past Governator of Area 5 Panathlon), Giovanni Iacono (Nerina’s sailing master and skipper). Sailboaters attending this ORC World Championship are also expected on the stage. On the big screen, images of today’s regatta will be shown, thanks to Adria Ferries ORC World Championship’s Press Office, Mauro Melandri, Fabio Taccola, Raffaella Scortichini, and Eleonora Baldi! Appointment tonight then, at 9.00pm…
