MILAN – The Milan Parish Recreational Centre initiative continued on Sunday afternoon with a stop off in Reggio Emilia in the Madonna della Neve centre in Gavasseto.The Parish centre is represented by Dino Giansoldati and is frequented by around 300 children between the ages of 5 and 20. The centre was given special recognition today for the work done in educating youngsters of the healthy values taught through sport.The sporting activities taught through the centre come under the name of “ASD Invicta” which dates back to 1976. The main activities are football and volleyball but the centre also provides an outlet for other activities such as theatre, music, song and dance.A delegation of Milan players led by young midfielder Bryan Cristante met some of the children as well as Dino Giansoldati and presented them with a commemorative plaque as well as autographs and complimentary tickets for this evening’s match against Sassuolo.This initiative last season invited 307 Parish centres to Milan’s home matches bringing over 5800 children to the San Siro stadium in the city.
