One success after another for the historic Accademia d’Armi Musumeci Greco, chaired by Maestro Renzo Musumeci Greco. Lorenzo Roma, who is just nineteen years old, having won the Gold Medal and the World Cup in sabre at the Junior and Cadets World Fencing Championships in Touron – Poland last Sunday, won another world championship, together with the other member of the Italian team (Luca Fioretto, Giacomo Mignuzzi e Michele Gallo), in the final with Russia on Monday.
Lorenzo Roma, who practically grew up in the Academy having held a sabre for the first time at five years of age, is now the best sabreur in the under twenties in the five continents.
The Honorary President of the Academia Musmeci Greco, Emmanuele F. M. Emanuele Professor – who competed as a national fencer and is currently an honorary member of the Fédération Internationale d’Escrime (International Fencing Federation), rejoiced. The Professor, together with Fondazione Terzo Pilastro – Internazionale, which he chairs, supports the activities of one of the oldest and renowned fencing schools established back in 1878 in a prestigious building on via Via del Seminario in Rome that the Emanuele family actually donated to the Greco family. In particular, Fondazione Terzo Pilastro promotes, as advocated by professor Emanuele due to his sensitivity the ‘Scherma senza limiti’ project, created to engage disabled youths in fencing that considerably benefits athletes in terms of integration, mobility and quality of life.
