“The unity of our Federation also passes through the organization of federal events of the various specialties in a single location – said Federal President Marco Giunio De Sanctis – Two years ago we proposed for the first time the unified Absolute Italian Championships of Raffa, Volo and Petanque and it was an organizational and image success ”.

“We must work in this sense, or rather on the unification of the events, since, albeit with the technical differences in the game, we must speak only one language – continued De Sanctis – Since 2017, Fib has been working to ensure that from the formal unification, already started in 1980, we also arrive at a substantial unification of our sports movement “.
