Insieme si può
Maratona Village is not only a fixed event on our calendar, but an actual institution within the Maratona itself. With over 37 commercial operators and 15,000 visitors, the Maratona Village in San Leonardo in Badia is a three-day event centred around fun and is full of surprises and entertainment for all the ages. Once again this year, the event's program is jam-packed with events and special guests ready to surprise and entertain the diverse group of people the marathon attracts.
The exhibition area will host a fashion show every day with models walking down a cycling catwalk wearing the Maratona's technical clothing.
The food corner in which to try the exhibitor's different products maybe shouldn't be called a corner, seeing as it takes up so much space and also offers companies in the industry the opportunity to present their products.
There's also a mega-screen projecting images of the Maratona and the village, and the much-loved wheel of fortune with many prizes up for grabs.
In the 'village', it's possible to meet famous people and celebrities who are available for interviews, chats, signing autographs and taking pictures. Like in previous years, day after day companies supporting the event will showcase many new, interesting products for the first time, starting from Segafredo, who will delight those attending with fair trade organic coffee. As always, there's Technogym taking part with the "Mycycling" treadmill, a revolutionary way to work out when going outdoors is not an option. Then there's Pinarello, showcasing Nitro, a new electric bicycle and a true gem of technology and innovation, which you'll be able to see and touch with your own hands. And there's more: Kask+Koo will showcase its new sunglasses and helmet collection; Rigamonti will tickle your taste buds with bresaola-based finger food; Selle Italia will continue to promote ID-Match, the innovative system to finding the right saddle, while Enervit will be available to advise you on the use of energy products while cycling. Many people are looking forward to visiting the Pirelli stand which offers a tyre check-up service to all participants.
Also confirmed its attendance is Mapei, who for years has been a welcome presence, and lastly, a visit to the Enel corner cannot go amiss: here you will discover the amazing world of electrical bicycles.
Even children will have their space thanks to the Arcese initiatives and Fabio Vettori's design lab, while Cantine Maschio, the official spumante provider of the Maratona, is bringing along its finest bottles for the adults. Last but not least, there are the hoteliers of the area who are preparing a tasting of local dishes for all cyclists and sports lovers.
Thanks to the renewed collaboration with Castelli, in the Maratona Shop you'll find the official products of Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel; you can purchase beautiful sweater-T-shirts for your free time, including the original vibrantly-coloured cycling clothing with all the accessories: gloves, socks and long underwear so you can enjoy cycling on every occasion.
Among the many surprises and confirmations worth mentioning, there's the massage service provided by the Enrico Fermi Institute, the school for sports masseuses; the social wall which gives you the chance to interact with the other people attending the event; the bicycle depot at your disposal to visit the village; the shuttle service which takes participants from the towns to the bib collection area and the village and, lastly, Audi, which is bringing its new food snow mobile!
There's nothing left for us to say but enjoy Maratona Village, a place of gathering and exploration for all!
