The Aurora Udine Est Association was founded by a group of people who share a passion for sport and have always lived in the same neighborhood. Noticing the changes it has undergone over the years, they decided to devote their free time to providing amenities in the area, so that children, teenagers and even the not so young can make full use of and enjoy the precious open spaces it contains. A worthy example of urban re-appropriation and regeneration from below.
The foundation supports the Aurora Udine Est Association in running the green area and helps organize the recreational and sports activities, tournaments and events. The goal is to upgrade the Via Valente park in Udine and make it attractive to all the area’s inhabitants.
Having obtained Udine town council’s go-ahead to run the Via Valente sports fields, in the Aurora district, the association is now looking after the entire area, consisting of a football field and a seven-a-side field, a basketball court, a rollerskating rink, a small playground and green areas.
The association has agreed to organize a series of activities, including:
- □ soccer tournaments
- □ a day dedicated to the maintenance of public spaces
- □ interventions in schools
- □ a sportsday
- □ the organization of the Auroriadi (Auroralympics).
