Good news and, at the same time, a recognition that gratifies all the staff of Ravenna Runners Club has arrived in the last few hours from the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism which is headed today by Minister Dario Franceschini.
The National Committee for the Celebrations of the 700th anniversary of Dante Alighieri’s death, established by a specific decree by the MiBACT Ministry of Cultural Heritage itself, has in fact communicated that it has granted, after careful evaluation, the patronage of the Ravenna Marathon City of Art.
This patronage is linked to the medal decorated by hand in Byzantine mosaic that shows the profile of the Supreme Poet and which, in its three versions different in size, should have represented the fantastic prize for all the finishers of the Marathon, Half Marathon and Good Morning Ravenna 2020.
Medals that, hand-made one by one in the Annafietta laboratory in the historic center of Ravenna, will still be the protagonists of the 2021 Marathon weekend scheduled from 12 to 14 November.
It is a real pride to see the commitment and attention with which Ravenna Runners Club promotes the city and the entire territory around the world every day by linking art, history, culture and sport.
