The practice of sport, intended not just as a physical activity performed exclusively for athletic
competition, represents a key element for growth on an emotional and social level. Practicing sports can
help to enhance one’s self- and body awareness through multidimensional dynamic and ludic activity. In
this context, sport becomes an educational and training tool, and is often a forerunner of social change.
Sports practice combining physical activity with recreational activity, can, in fact, promote health and
longevity, as well as physical and psychological wellbeing. As highlighted by the European Union, sport
is also a source of social inclusion, and an excellent tool for the integration of minorities and groups at risk
of social exclusion.
