AICS – Associazione Italiana Cultura e Sport

It is classified among the National Sporting Promotion Boards (EPS). Over the years it has extended its fields of interest to the areas of solidarity, culture, social policies, the Third Sector, social tourism, the environment, attention towards the marginalized and the disabled, civil protection and training.

The AICS was born from the experience gained in the ’50s by two distinct associations, that of the Italian Sports Club (UCSI) and that of the Italian Social Sports Association (ASSI). The first National Congress of the Association was interpreted in Rome on the occasion of the decision to combine these two circuits to face the development of Italian society with a new project. On September 14, 1962, also in Rome, the National Council of the Association was held, which completed the founding path in terms of cultural and representative address. The Constitutive Act was drafted on October 10, 1962 in the presence of Giacomo Brodolini, Cesare Bensi, Matteo Matteotti, Enrico Guabello, Giovanni Piepoli and Enrico Manca, with the name Associazione Italiana Circoli Sportivi (AICS) and as a non-profit association for the promotion of cultural and social initiatives and sports activities for the whole population. The manuscript deed by the notary Francesco Alfieri (Rep. 19499 Prog. 8489) is now preserved in the District Notary Archives of Rome (R. 7462 pages 403-419). The Association was formed when the post-war reconstruction ended, at the beginning of the 60s, Italy began to confront the new problems of the industrial society, showing more attention to domestic rather than international issues. However, many felt that the reality of the Cold War would be overcome not only by military initiatives or political power, but also by an overall transformation of society, of cultural ideals, of many concrete behaviors. In those years, in Italy as in other countries, the contrast of the Cold War also translated into electoral representations that favored belonging to one or the other side, or encouraged to undertake alternative paths. In these paths the AICS continues to find energy for its own development. In the electoral confrontation between the Christian Democrats (DC) and the Italian Communist Party (PCI), the Italian Socialist Party (PSI) was the smallest faction and in which the social conflicts and the search for alternative solutions were more evident, both in practice as daily as in horizons of new ideality. In this situation, the PSI has certainly been an important reference that has contributed to the growth of the AICS, giving it an important political support, and that has drawn ideas, experiences and resources from AICS.

The AICS organizes its initiatives subdividing them into 16 sectors:

  • Sports;
  • Environment;
  • LGBT Department (GAYCS);
  • Equal Commission;
  • Communication and Press;
  • Organization;
  • Youth Policies;
  • Social Policies;
  • Civil protection;
  • International Policies;
  • Relations with MIUR;
  • Civil service;
  • Third sector;
  • Culture;
  • Scientific Committee;
  • Tourism.

Lazio Basket has been an important team in the history of the Italian national championship. It has been refounded from zero by the current President, Simone Santi, an Italian entrepreneur, whose family has always played an important role on the basketball scene in Italy.

The focus of the association is on social activities. Through the initiative called “Progetto Colors”, S.S. Lazio Basket has offered children of different nationalities living in disadvantaged areas of Italy (and especially Rome) the opportunity to learn a sport that, just like education, is one of the greatest tools of equality of our time. Up to now, hundreds of young players of about 30 nationalities have had the opportunity to play basketball for free in various centers created by the Colors Project in Italy. Within the same Project, S.S. Lazio Basket has also created in Zimpeto, a suburb of the Mozambican capital Maputo, basketball teams for boys and girls of different ages, inside a center for orphans and street children. Women’s teams have quickly achieved very positive results (Mozambique has a long tradition in women’s basketball) and played in the official Mozambique championships (with exceptional results). For this purpose a local branch of Lazio Basket was established, the Associação Desportiva Lazio Basket.

The path is similar for the amateur and promotional sector too. Although very young (the company was founded in 2008 by the merger of two schools managed separately by the current administrators, Martellucci Serena and Costa Barbara), thanks to the numerous competitors and students of the promotional / amateur sector, after only 2 years of activity the S.S. Lazio Amateur Dance Sport S.r.l. needs larger spaces (it is not easy to find structures of minimum 400 square meters with parquet and mirrors and economically accessible). The Italian Champions of Argentine Tango cl. C in charge are part of the S.S. school Lazio Danza Sportiva and moreover, thanks to the score obtained, 5 couples have earned the transition to the upper class, one of which in the international class. The activities are proposed and supervised by the same technical technicians of the technical / artistic management who also operate in the primary and secondary public schools of 1 °, in which, for some years now, integrated courses have been activated (with pathologies found both in physical / psychological nature, that of serious environmental maladjustment) in school hours (as implementation) or as a matter of widening the training plan (still constituting credit, and as such, object of evaluation); the courses are structured as first forms of agonism in school age (Student Sports Games).

The Amateur Sports Association Lazio Sport Lazio 5 is the soccer section 5 of the Polisportiva S.S. Lazio. From its foundation until today it has always played in the top flight. It was founded in 1996 in Rome, after the acquisition of the sporting title of Torrino Sporting Club, by the founders Roberto Sordini, Fabio Cragnotti and Fabio Quaglia. In the first season in Serie A, 1996-97 ended in third place, in the following year instead conquered Scudetto and Coppa Italia. In 1998-99 he managed to reach the final of the European Champions Tournament (progenitor of the UEFA Cup), but was defeated in the final by Dina Mosca. The victory of the second Italian Cup and, in the youth sector, of the Juniores championship, softened the season finale. The 2016/2017 season sees the men’s Serie A reach an anticipated salvation at the end of a very hard season, but that has in the permanence of the category the point of maximum happiness. The victory at the home of the Kaos in the second round and the success at the table with Pescara was decisive. At the same time, however, a not brilliant vintage for the female Elite. The greatest successes, however, come once again from the youths: the Giovanissimi take the Scudetto, the students stop only in the regional final, the Juniores of Reali comes to a breath from the tricolor, beaten 1-0 by Napoli in the final championship. Who sews the biancorossoverde on the chest is the female U18 that, for the second consecutive year, wins the Italian title. 2017-18 consumes yet another revolution: after three seasons the marriage with coach Mannino, replaced by Gianfranco Angelini, is interrupted. The vintage is the lowest point in the history of the company: the team, which immediately appeared inadequate to the highest category, plots in the rear, leading to the newly promoted Milan the penultimate position that would avoid direct relegation. Angelini is exonerated during the second round and replaced by Fabrizio Reali, however, he can not reverse the course. In the meantime, the successful resignation of Pescara reduces to one the number of retrocessions, determined by the play-out between the last and second-last classified. Lazio and Milan end the regular season paired but the best goal difference rewards the Lombard team, which will play the return home race.
