The various challenges in the program are inspired by the theme of this VIII edition: the Superheroes.
Very often, in fact, the people of art4sport and, more generally, the Paralympic athletes are seen as superheroes, especially by children with disabilities (but not only by them …). This is very important for art4sport because it helps many children and their families to find the motivations and the strength to leave the house and go to socialize through the practice of sporting activity, true heart of the association’s mission.

ART4SPORT and BEBE
The association art4sport ONLUS was founded at the end of 2009 inspired by the experience of Bebe (Beatrice Vio), vital girl and with many passions including fencing, which in 2008 was hit by a serious disease that caused the amputation of the four arts. A difficult condition that has not prevented her from going back to practicing fencing, now in a wheelchair, and winning many important trophies and medals. In particular, from 2014 onwards, he won gold in all competitions in which he participated: 2 European Championships (2014 and 2016), 2 World Cups (2015 and 2017) and the Rio 2016 Paralympics.
Bebe is involved in promoting the movement of Paralympic sport in Italy by involving more and more children with disabilities to approach sport. From this activity he draws the art4sport lymph that aims to improve the quality of life of children and teenagers who wear limb prostheses and consequently that of their families.
