talk about the San Francisco bay area, it would be greatly

ITALIAN SWIM CAMP
Mary Lokken of Florence, Italy asked me to post this. Mary has been
just a godsend in helping us communicate with the people running the
X FINA Masters World Championships. (Mary is Cal grad). If you want
to combine swimming and traveling, you might try this camp.
"NUOTO" means in Italian "SWIMMING", and "NUOTO+" means "More than Just
Giovanni Franceschi, two times Europoean champion and record-holder, and
41 times winner in Italian Championships, and creator of the summer swim
camps "NUOTO+", is happy to present the calendar for 2004 "NUOTO+" swim
June 27 - July 3 Viareggio (Lucca)
July 11 -17 Numana (Ancona)
July 24 - 31 ClubMed Cervina (Aosta)
August 1-7 Viareggio (Lucca)
August 29 - September 4 Viareggio (Lucca)
September 5 - 11 Citta' del Mare (Palermo)
This is a series of swim camps held in some of the most beautiful
locations in Italy, where beginners as well as advanced swimmers of all
ages can improve the practical and theoretical knowlegde of their
favorite sport, working with tutors of worldwide fame (Domenico
Fioravanti and the coach of the Italian National Swim Team, Alberto
Castagnetti, just to name two).
We would like to highlight the philosophy which characterizes NUOTO+ :
swimming activities, which are central to the program, are surrounded by
a a program in which ethical , behavioral , and sports values are very
important, and this qualifies NUOTO+ as an educational experience, not
only from a technical point of view.
