I took the risk and opened it. Here it is:

General Cooperation proposal

Let me introduce myself: my name is Roberto Saladini; I am a Master in Genova Nuoto Team specialist in middle, long distance and open water events.

I was charged by Mister Brunello Graja, dean in our team, breaststroke World champion, founder of Italian Master Swimming Organization, and Beatrice Inghilleri, chairman of Masters Team, to launch a cooperation initiative with USMS. Teams .

Genova Nuoto is the oldest swimming Team in Italy. We have athletes in all Italian categories of agonistic events: Young, Adults Swimmers and Masters. Sometime we proudly provide someone of them to Italian National Swimming Team.

In Masters we have specialist for all age’s categories in speed, distance and open water freestyle, and, of course, in backstroke, fly and breaststroke classical events. Someone of them, Italian Champion. Our long course facilities are operative in winter and summer available for training six days/week.
You can find out more information in our web site : www.genovanuoto.net unfortunately just in Italian ,but I will be happy to answer to your questions. You can see Facilities Photos clicking on La Sciorba.

I do believe we can cooperate in, at least, four group of activities:

1- Competition and Workouts
2- Facilities and Support for travelers masters in Italy, Europe and US
3- Swimming Medicine
4- Organization

More in details

1-Competition and Workouts

Providing a common list of main national and international competitions of our interests and time by time decide in which manner we can joint our efforts to participate.

Change our info about the workouts for Macro cycle, Micro cycle, in Midseason, Competition and Taper…dry land training (Weights, Flexibility…)

2-Facilities and Support for travelers Masters

Every traveler hopes to find a friend and swimming pool when abroad! More we can provide info for reservations, ground and air transportation and maybe services for your organization in Europe and same you can do for us in US.

3-Swimming Medicine

Nutrition, injuries prevention and treatment very important for young and old Masters


In Italy we don’t have Masters Postal Meetings like you in the US. Their creation would be a great chance to capture many others to our beloved and evergreen sport.

Thanks in advance for your interest

I was fortunate enough to go to Rome about eight years ago and swim with some Italian teams, the names I can't remember now, but I ended up moving there in 2005, and stayed there for quite some time. I would be interested in hearing any further ideas or proposals you have. I also speak Italian fairly well (although not as fluent as I once was :() so if that's any help to anyone, I'd be willing to help with your proposal.
