The World Championships Young Horses inaugurated in the historic centre of Verona

25/09/2013 - evento generico

An explosion of flags, colours, music and cheerful people. The show that will go on stage tomorrow afternoon at 16:00 in the heart of the city of Verona is going to be a truly unique and unforgettable one. The historic centre of the Della Scalas’ city will host, in fact, the long parade of athletes and guests of honour that will liven up the great opening ceremony of the 2013 FEI World Championships Young Horses.

 

The parade is set to start at 16:00 at the Austrian Arsenale. From here, after crossing the bridge of Castelvecchio, the parade will take the central Roma road; the arrival in Piazza Bra, close to the Arena, is estimated twenty minutes later.

 

The leader of the parade will be the Picket of Honour of the Forest Guard who will march on horseback, followed by the City Band of the City Hall of Erbè and then gradually by the delegations of the participating nations, made of athletes and staff, each with its own flag.

 

The last in the parade, the athletes of the Italian Federation will be followed by four historic carriages from the beginning of the twentieth century, at the disposal of the authorities, and by four vintage cars. Along with the parade a few artists wearing historical outfits will march in occasion of the Centenary of the Arena Opera. The mayor of Verona Flavio Tosi, the president of the FEI Ian Williams, the president of the Lagodigarda Tutto l’anno Aldo Brancher and the president of Garda Endurance Cup James Coppini will deliver speeches on the stage set up between Palazzo Barbieri, the seat of the City Hall of Verona and the Arena.

 

“All the citizens of Verona and the many of tourists wandering through the streets of the city are invited to the party”, says Massimo Meldo, artistic director of the Ceremony. “The show promises to be suggestive and eye-catching. Not everybody is familiar with the fascinating world of horses and the choice to introduce the World Cup here, in the heart of Verona, is meant to bring as many people as possible closer to this wonderful sport.”
