These days it bounces the news that the prosecutor of Florence, following the expert opinion submitted by Professor Gaetano Thiene and filed with the public prosecutor of Udine is investigating the issue of fitness for competitive sports activities released to Davide Astori, the footballer died of a cardiac pathology.
In an interview with the Prof. Gaetano Thiene, doctor who in 1979, dissecting and analysing the heart of a young athlete who died while playing tennis, he has discovered the cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic right ventricular, the heart disease that led to the death of the footballer Davide Astori, it argues that as soon as they appear, the signs and symptoms that may lead to this disease, it is necessary to refer the athlete for further tests.
Also Prof. Gaetano Thiene, explains in his interview: “Everything is provided by the Cocis, by the cardiac protocols for the assessment of sporting fitness. Just follow them. In the case of a path crash, especially under stress, it is necessary to subject the athlete to a holter monitor and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging of the heart, which highlights the pathology. In addition, according to international diagnostic criteria, heart biopsy is also planned.“
All this should lead us to think more about how sport is experienced. What should be the basis for a sporting activity, that is, the physical and mental wellbeing, more so for those who do not chose to experience the sport in a professional manner (we refer to the vast world of the amateur), has been exceeded by bringing the attention only to the continuous search for improvement of sports performance. Are neglected the controls, there is the tendency to invest large sums of money to buy the instrument in order to improve sports performance, while:
You are looking for savings, looking for centres which issue certificates of fitness sports at the lowest cost, thereby subjecting such centres, in order to meet this need, to minimize costs rather than to improve the excellence of the controls.
The power supply plays an important role, if not fundamental to a physical well-being, especially if addressed towards the physical activity, but also in this case, the tendency is to go to the save, rather than go to qualified professionals, the user is brought to turning to non-medical personnel and will not correctly format in order to receive advice on sports nutrition.
We should all take a step back and focus first and foremost on well-being and on that basis, choose the right activity and rhythm according to your physical condition.

Jacopo Bianchi | Federico Cuomo / la medicina dello sport returns to Turin, at a crucial moment for educational policies and programs in the field of motor activity. This is the main message that emerged from the conference dedicated to the perspectives in medicine and Traumatology of sport, held in the Hall Honoris of the School of Business Administration in Turin.
The meeting, coordinated by the Health Director, Suism, Giorgio Diaferia, gathered around a table of leading figures from the medical field-sports of turin-by professor Ezio Ghigo of the School of Medicine of the University of Turin, Riccardo D’elicio, president of Cus, by professor Marco Minetto School of specialisation in Sports Medicine to dr. Sara Belcastro, a specialist in endocrinology. The councilman Marco Chessa, member of the Sports Commission at Palazzo Civico, has brought the greetings of the City Council of Turin.
Your Marco Chessa opened the long series of interventions planned in the course of the day, placing the emphasis on the need to improve the physical education given to new generations and to the large sporting events that will characterize the immediate future of the city.
Chessa recalled an alarming fact: in Italy two out of three children cannot complete a somersault. A clear signal of how national and local politics must necessarily intervene to stimulate the movement generations increasingly accustomed to sedentarity, with heavy repercussions on the health system. He also recalled that the city is about to host international events, such as the European Masters Game and, in 2019, the Volley World Cup.
The majority leader has finally left an open door to the much debated Olympic candidacy for 2026, pointing out that the administration is moving to bring to the city something bigger than the events already scheduled.The word is then passed to Ezio Ghigo, who has focused attention on the importance of the figure of the physician, but also on the need to create team work by communication experts with trained professionals from the department of exercise Sciences, will know how to rehabilitate effectively with patients and treat certain diseases through physical activity. About the faculty dedicated to the professions of sports, from any year, located in different structures, Ghigo has reiterated the need to identify a single location that can constitute a pole where you can create synergies between medicine and sports. Following this logic, Marco Minetto noted as the return under the wheels of the school of specialization for doctors in sports is an incredible resource, even more in a panorama of national healthcare in which the request of this specific professional figure is in constant increase. A small victory at a time when the city is called upon to reflect widely on its future, including the medical-sporty one. Who knows that one day the Olympic Turin of white nights cannot join that of the centres of excellence of sports medicine. For now we are waiting, and it is to be hoped that politics will strike a blow.
