Sport is life! Basket in wheelchair: our boys won the silver medal!


“We can be just like everybody else, even in sports!” (cit. Riccardo e Luigi Tozzi)

Sport is life and is for everybody. Competing for something very important relights the flame of your passion and makes you feel really alive. Each of us should find his/her own sport, doing something that likes and fits his/her own personality. We have plenty of options, fortunately, and satisfactions could be too many, from a very young age!


Our boys Riccardo and Luigi Tozzi, partners founders of Mitofusin 2 Project, are proof ot that. Thay have been playing a beautiful competitive team sport, basket in wheelchair, with so much passion for a time, achieving successfull outcomes. Last June 5th, at the end of a beautiful season, together with their team Volpi Rossi Menarini they win the silver medal at the National Championship Under 22.
