On October 3, 2016, the Association of the LUISS Business School Alumni is honoured to give a warm welcome to Timothy Shriver, President of Special Olympics, which is the world’s greatest sports organisation uniting athletes of all ages with intellectual disabilities. The meeting will take place in the heart of Rome, in the suggestive Stadium of Domitian.

The event will be opened by Maurizio Romiti, President of Special Olympics Italy, and Leonardo Iacovelli, Managing Director of BLSA Qatar, followed by Francesco Rullani, Head of ERS Hub at LUISS University, and Edoardo Magnotta, Head of Alumni Network Development at LUISS Business School. In fact, the alumni community of LUISS Business School is planning to support the spirit of the Special Olympics, empowering in particular the connection between sport and education.

The topics covered include the value of sport’s social impact and, thanks to the presence of Timothy Shriver at the event, the experiences of the organisation of Special Olympics.
