This is the case for his Malpensata neighborhood Malpensata Campagnola Sports Center, who began cooperating with the Nerazzurri Club. With a goal beyond sport.
“Unfortunately, the Malpensata does not have a good reputation – he says Antonino mayothe secretary of the sports club – this is said because it is a social residential neighborhood: with this partnership we are also trying to give a place to the neighborhood.”
“There was already cooperation – adds Maggio – now and then the children of Atalanta football schools came to play matches in our structures, and we made the spaces available. Since last year, we have addressed this issue in more depth.”

So the boy who finished soccer school and doesn’t stay in Atalanta doesn’t stay without a team and doesn’t have to start over to look for a team.
