The 10th of March will be the 10th anniversary of the Torino 2006 Paralympic games and ADPLOG will be celebrating the inauguration of the "EMOTIONS! Simply athletes” exhibition, dedicated to Paralympic sport and the protagonists of which..the athletes.
On display there will be images of 10 international photographers, that for numerous years have closely followed the Paralympic movement and it’s evolution. The "athletic gesture" will be highlighted and stories recounted through meaningful images, creating a strong atmosphere, moving and involving, capable of arousing positive EMOTIONS.
The exhibition is born with the scope of cultural promotion and the development of new social content and testifies the growth of the Paralympic movement over the last ten years and it’s role in developing social awareness regarding disability. Indeed it intends to create a curious attitude towards sport for athletes with disabilities, for which there is so much to discover and support.
To promote social integration, to celebrate the sport as a constitutive element of dialogue and cooperation between people and countries, finally, to support the sport as an instrument for the recovery of independence and of self esteem following trauma, are the mainstay themes of the exhibition.
Images from the following artists will be on display: Mauro Ujetto ( Italy ), Roberto Serrate ( Italy ), Laurent Bagnis ( France ), Emanuele Broli ( Italy ), Lieven Coudenys ( Belgium ), Inge Handebrink ( Holland ), Yonathan Kellerman ( Canada ), Ralf Kuckuck ( Germany ), Luc Percival ( France ), Helene Wiesenhaan ( Holland )
The course will be accompanied by music by the master Ezio Bosso, whom, for the exhibition has made available his latest work, “The 12th Room” the tour of which is registering "sold out” throughout Italy.
Each Saturday and Sunday ADPLOG will host EMOTIONS! WE CAN, workshops, events and teaching classes for employees in this sector, schools and youngsters, to be able to understand and discuss with various figures of excellence that operate in the world of sport for athletes with disabilities, treating the disabilities as part of the world and not a world apart.
