The Arcese Group, one of the main transport and logistics companies in Italy and Europe, has confirmed its partnership with the Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel for the second year. The event is a concrete opportunity to share the passion for the two wheels and the sporting values that are both part of the company and of the Maratona. To offer a great atmosphere at the event not only to the athletes but also to those accompanying them, Arcese will set up a special stage for old and young. Caricaturists, make-up artists and performers like Ciccio Tempesta and Mr. Baloons will involve everyone for the whole weekend with shows and lots of surprises. It all starts on Saturday morning, immediately after the Maratona for Kids and then goes on into the afternoon at the Maratona Village. It will continue on Sunday with the full staff of artists who will perform just a few metres from the Maratona finish line.
Matteo Arcese, the company’s president, comments about Arcese’s participation to the 29th edition: “We are proud to renew our partnership and to take part to the Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel for the second year running. We share our passion for sport and respect for the environment with this event. Experiencing the race to the full and ignoring your fatigue to reach the finish line is a truly unique and moving experience: for both the athletes and those supporting them, even as simple spectators. It is also a unique opportunity for visibility and advertising through event-linked communication for our brand.”
The director of the Maratona, Claudio Canins comments: “The Arcese group has always promoted eco-sustainable logistics that respects nature, helping the event in Alta Badia not only to be a great celebration of sport for old and young, but also a celebration of the environment”.

“Let your heart decide” they say, and it is true: decisions made with the heart, when they are deeply felt, are always the right ones.
However, in order to feel with your HEART, the mind must be cleaned, purified and liberated. We have to stop lying to ourselves, in order to deal with our daily lives, as much as possible, with our heart.
We don’t need sport, or a holiday, or to free ourselves from stress…the mind frees itself with a tool that is within everyone’s grasp: forgiveness.
The black dots represent the negative that we experience every day … a tiff, disappointment, a ‘no’… but also our unstoppable desire to appear better than others, our arrogance, judgement and ego.
In the logo our mind is represented as a dark and obscure labyrinth, dotted with black points, but forgiveness intervenes with its strength (colour) to protect our heart and leave it intact.
