Zilli, young protagonists. Roberti, minority languages ​​festival Udine, 21 June – The first thematic table aimed at culture, sport and young people operators was held today in Udine at the regional headquarters in view of the implementation of the program of events for GO!2025 Nova Gorica Gorizia European Capital of Culture, chaired by the regional councilor for Finance Barbara Zilli, with the participation of the vice president with responsibility for Culture and Sport Mario Anzil, the regional councilor for Local Autonomies and Minority Languages ​​Pierpaolo Roberti, as well as the president of the EGTC Paolo Petiziol. The president of Coni Fvg Giorgio Brandolin, the president of Arlef Eros Cisilino, representatives of the regional sports federations and the Universities of Udine and Trieste also took part at the table. Councilor Zilli reiterated that “more than 140 million euros have so far been allocated to the European Capital of Culture, confirming how the regional administration cares not only about the excellent success of the 2025 events, but also about contributing to the future of this territory. After the excellent feedback offered by the Go!2025 coordination table, we decided to dedicate thematic meetings on strategic themes. It was very important and dynamic: we collected ideas and proposals that together we want to implement months we will convene, together with the competent councilors, the table dedicated to tourism, infrastructure, international cooperation, involving the operators directly involved in the territory”. “A fruitful meeting, especially with sports operators, to imagine events that can contribute to developing a frontier culture in this area too, necessarily polyphonic and pluralistic – said deputy governor Anzil -. Anyone who comes to visit Gorizia will have to grasp the authentic soul of this city and this land. We need to involve all operators, both cultural and sporting. Today we are getting to the heart of the proposal and we want the drive to continue in the years to come: all sporting initiatives will therefore also be able to take place in a longer time frame”. As for linguistic communities, Roberti declared that “in a context of a cross-border event, minority languages ​​will be the protagonists. We have thought of a festival of minority languages ​​to start in 2025 with a zero edition, and then possibly continue in the years to come. A further initiative will give a primary role to the Teatro Stabile Friulano for a multilingual theatrical production. Furthermore, all the regional conferences of the minority languages ​​(Friulian, Slovenian and German) should take place in Gorizia in 2025 including the final plenary assembly”. Among the further proposals that emerged during the meeting, there is first and foremost a stage of the Giro d’Italia which will be linked to the cross-border event; the region will also host the Alpe Adria Games with under 23 athletes from four nations, a Nordic walking circuit aimed at enhancing the landscape, culture and sport of the area, and youth basketball tournaments. Confirmation has come from CONI of the organization of the under 16 cross-border football championship “Tournament without borders”, of the Nations tournament on Slovenian, Carinthian and Friuli Venezia Giulia pitches, of the kayaking event on the Isonzo, of the Alpe Adria multidisciplinary games and new nine-a-side rugby games to always be held on Italian and Slovenian pitches. Confirmation of the universities’ willingness to take an active part in further initiatives beyond those already launched under European and regional programs has also come from the University of Trieste and the University of Udine.
