Why we chose to focus our own educational project on sport? Before we start analyzing the educational aspects of the meaning of the word itself.

And ‘curious and emblematic as simple lexical point of view the word sport is one of those rare terms which does not have the translations in different languages, giving the universal definition of -a set of complex activities on the psycho-physical level aimed at achieving a result achieved through the agonistico- spirit.
