Intervista a Elisa Hoban, consigliere dell’Unione Ginnastica Goriziana


Interview to Elisa Hoban, Unione Ginnastica Goriziana’s councilor.


Roberto Sartori:Elisa Hoban, in your opinion, how are these Assoluti going?

Elisa Hoban: Today is the most important day and I can say that is going on very well: Bebe Vio has attracted a lot of people and institutions near us were here and they were really happy.

Is there something that you would like to change or you are totally satisfied with the done job?

I’m happy with the done job, but we have to work on the moment before the matches: the organisation in the part that preceeds every match has to be surely improved.

The students that helped in the realisation of the Assoluti di Scherma project, with the Alternanza scuola-lavoro project, deserve some thanks?

This is my crown jewel, because I created this project. I think that when there’s a big event we have to involve the territory and UGG, which is mainly dedicated to young people, wanted to include students in these Assoluti. Obviously for a work like this, a communication campaign, field’s assistance and graphic design, we couldn’t involve children and so we choose teenagers starting from 16 years old  ones and I’m super happy. It has been exciting to see them in action.

Shall we wish good luck to the athletes who still have to compete?

We wish good luck to the fencers that still have to compete and the best will win..but not only! I wanted to say to the students that we’d like to collaborate again with them and that we have a lot of projects that will involve them again.
