Foggia is proud to host such a great technic value sport event, because it will confirm - and in some cases, it will reveal - the fencing world champions of the next years.
Thanks to Dauno Fencing Club and to other enriching experiences of the last decays, our City can praise a high level fencing tradition, generating athletes, coaches, referees and managers esteemed at international level. Still nowadays, our fellow citizens, athletes in the national team, represent an important contribution to the success of Italy in international fencing competitions.
The European Championship is an extraordinary chance for the visibility of our territory, not only from the sport-organizing point of view, but also from the cultural and tourist one. Capitanata is ready to confirm its traditional welcome.

The Archangel Michael is the millenial "testimonial" of the territory hosting the Cadets and Junior European Fencing Championship. From Skelling Michael in Ireland, to Mount Carmel in Israel, passing through England, France, Monte Sant'Angelo - here, in our territory - and Greece, the sword of the Archangel Michael, recurring in all the images portrayed, is necessary to divide the Good and the Evil, to show what can keep the people together.
