Founded in Bologna in 1957, for 60 years Polisportiva Pontevecchio Bologna has been meaning union and competition for thousands of young people in the capital of Emilia. And there’s more, since Pontevecchio has been the beating heart of sport in the city for 60 years.
The history of Pontevecchio is marked by excellence and victories of their competitive teams, as well as by the daily responsibility to represent and spread an inclusive approach to sport, accessible and available to all citizens.
Since 1957, Pontevecchio Bologna has brought its competitive sections under the spotlights of the world and tens of thousands of young Felsinei grew up wearing the amaranth shirt with the discobolo placed on their hearts.
Pontevecchio Bologna is currently composed by ten sports sections, plus a wide range of motor activities aimed at the well-being of citizens of all ages, throughout the city area. Pontevecchio Bologna manages dozens of sports facilities, gyms and halls available to the citizens, with constantly updated and high quality proposals.
Among their most prestigious results in recent years, we remember the gymnast Anna Basta, selected in the “Farfalle Azzurre” team preparing the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and their victory during the last World Championships of rhythmic gymnastics in Pesaro. Moreover, the victory of the Serie A2 championship and the admission to the A1 series of the rhythmic gymnastics team is to be cited. In roller skating, Alessandro Amadesi, Alessandro Liberatore and Federico Degli Esposti won several world titles; while Gabriele Calarota gained a silver medal at the Worlds of ultimate Frisbee. He also entered the Champions League with the Pontevecchio-DiscoBolo team.
