Panathlon International Cultural Foundation – Domenico Chiesa

The exhibition at the Olympic Museum was inaugurated on March 20, 2019

Sports is……….Its values, NO to all forms of violence (from racism to doping and antagonism) an invitation  to consider Fair Play and sports for all.

Great expectations for the exhibition that will be inaugurated on March 20th  at the Olympic Museum of  Lausanne 

In a good atmosphere of effective collaboration with the “Olympic Foundation for Culture and Patrimony”, the 34 works selected for the exhibition will reach Lausanne in the coming days 

The project of the review has followed a pattern to illustrate five chapters: The Essence of sport, its values, the NO to its disvalues represented by Racism, Doping, Antagonism and the Sport for all.

A guide to the exhibition that will accompany the visitors has been published and, in the preamble, the nature of the Panathletic Movement and Chiesa Foundation and the meaning of the International Contest of Graphic Arts, which is living this year its XVII edition. The works that will be exhibited respect a criterion of universality, assuring the presence of all countries of the authors represented in these years. Italy will be, naturally, more represented given the high number of works produced, but this must be an encouragement for all Districts to promote participation of schools and students that the clubs will want to involve. There will be no shortage of works from Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Kenya, Peru, Switzerland, Uruguay.
