Third appointment in the series The things we have in common. In this episode, a special interview, in which the two students Niccolò Guerrini and Anna Manca confront the Italian captain Giorgio Chiellini.

What do a multiple champion and two kids have in common? First of all Livorno! But then also higher concepts, let’s say a philosophy of life. But let’s proceed in order. We don’t have to say much about Giorgio Chiellini, except that he has made Juventus fans and all Italians dream with his black and blue jersey. Niccolò and Anna, on the other hand, need more introduction, because their dreams are still in their infancy… Niccolò and Anna, like many kids their age, study. And at school, they also follow the beautiful project of a school garden.

So the elements of commonality multiply, and they are not just Livorno. Because creating a vegetable garden, just like playing a final match, is a team game; because it is a grassy field, the playing field; and because the concept of fair play has many similarities.

Let’s compare distant worlds – that of those who have embarked on a career that is a dream for many young people, and that of those who are developing that dream right now – and discover how the common elements are a sense of passion, hard work, challenge… sometimes even boredom! Why do we want to put the hours spent training to defend the net or tilling the soil?

Let’s follow the online encounter between Giorgio, Anna and Niccolò on the homepage of this platform, and try to discover their common traits.

Let’s also explore the Vegetable Gardens in Conduct project, in which many children and young people have participated!
