Paralympic champion graces the inauguration of the Aquamore centre in Spinea
Spinea is ready for a busy future, as it will be a designated European City of Sport 2023 with an aquatic centre designed to promote sports for all ages and abilities. In addition to the mayor, a representation of sportsmen was present at the facility’s inauguration, including the Italian Paralympic athlete Luigi Beggiato (who secured 2 silver and 1 bronze medal in the recent Tokyo Games). Absent was Federica Pellegrini, but for an excellent reason – she was engaged in China for the Winter Olympics as a member of the IOC.
Managed by Aquamore, Spinea was designed to promote swimming and other aquatic activities with a focus on rehabilitation, and to provide unique opportunities for people with disabilities. The 7,000 square meter design by the Teco + architect studio also includes a gym area, and another for physiotherapy. The aquatic area, meanwhile, consists of three pools created with the expertise and exclusive technology of Myrtha Pools.
As a partner of FINA since 2009, the Italian company supplied a 25-meter competition swimming pool equipped with the Myrtha Track Start blocks which are the standard for international racing. And of course, the key to this facility are two additional pools – one for teaching swimming, and another devoted to therapy and rehabilitation. Those vessels allow for Spinea to include prenatal and infant aquatic courses among their offerings and meet every aquatic need.
