“In this year of work I have known many wonderful realities such as that of your maestro Maddaloni – explained the Councilor for Sport Emanuela Ferrante. I believe that there should be a garrison of this kind in all of our city, in all the Municipalities, because , as the Mayor also states, sport must not be so much agonism and competition, but must above all be an investment for the social sector and this is also why we wanted to make the bet of nominating Naples as the European capital of sport 2026 “.
“Susi as well as Zeudy Di Palma, Miss Italy 2022, represent two girls from Scampia who have become ambassadors of beauty and positive values - said the President of the Municipality 8 Scampia, Nicola Nardella – in an area that experiences a very strong stigma but which, thanks to experiences like these, he manages to place himself in a different narrative”.
“I thank Susy for the prestige she brings to the area – observed the President of the Sport Commission Gennaro Esposito – I would like to ask her to bring her experience to the schools of the eighth municipality to make it clear to the many kids, who have distorted life models, if anything, how much sport is beautiful and how many satisfactions and how many emotions it can give. I hope you can crown this experience with participation in the Olympics and we will be by your side as institutions”.
“ Your experience is an important example for all young people – added Sergio Colella, municipal councilor of the Metropolitan City, delegate for sport and young people – Precisely for this reason we are also committed to strengthening the network of gyms in the area, which are a fundamental ”.
“Thank you for believing in me, and supporting my dreams – concluded the young athlete, Susy Scutto I must admit that I have always been afraid to face life but on the tatami I have never felt small. I hope my example can make young people understand that sport can help you in life and make a big difference”.
