The goal of this event is to bring together guys from different cultures and to make them understand that despite their different backgrounds there should be no discrimination.
Short description of the event: 
We organized a football tournament in a park in Macerata in collaboration with two associations that take care of immigrants in our city, the G.U.S. and Perigeo associations. Immigrants and Erasmus students, after playing football, spent the afternoon together having a picnic, singing and dancing on the lawn.

Feedback: 
After what happened in Macerata on February 3, 2018, the day when an Italian boy started shooting all the black people he met around the city, we think it is very important to organize such activities. The meeting between the different cultures that coexist in our territory is essential, as is the fight against racism. This activity was also useful to make immigrants understand that not all Italians and Europeans are against immigration, but rather that there are many people who are in favor of their integration into the society that is hosting them.
