Italy comes back to host the "great fencing" by choosing Foggia and the entire Capitanata. 
A choice honoring what the local socio-economic and sport context has done in favor of fencing all over the years.
Foggia was the first Italian southern city to have a fencing indoor stadium in which the Cadets European Championship experimental edition took place; more over, many athletes, referees and coaches, esteemed at international level, come from this territory.
Choosing Foggia, formerly City Partner of the Italian Fencing Federation, is the answer to a social aim: in my opinion sport, in particular fencing, can be a chance for release and for economic opportunities, especially for so-called "arid" territories.
Foggia 2019 Cadets and Junior European Fencing Championship is a chance to muster all the socio-economic powers working in Capitanata, as well as the Apulian fencing lovers that will host in the best way they can all the over 1000 athletes representing the 42 Countries of the European Confederation.
Foggia - as the Mayor, Franco Landella, highlighted when he received the European Confederation flag in Sochi - will provide for its warming welcome to the thousands people who will be able to admire the naural beauties and the energy of the City, country-seat of Capitanata.
I am sure that local administrations, the Municipality as well as the Region and the Italian Fencing Federation for sure, will support the President and the Organizing Committee.
As the President of the Italian Fencing Federation, I also want to thank all the Sponsors, for choosing to sustain this high-profile sport event, because it is an extraordinary socio-economic growth opportunity for all the territory. 
To the Organizing Committee my best wishes in its work and an appeal to overcome any inevitable trouble with the passion and enthusiasm marking the Apulian fencing.
Good job everybody and "see you" in Foggia for all the athletes!

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.
