Mens sana in corpore sano (a healthy mind in a healthy body) is a famous Latin quotation. It derives from Satire X of the Roman poet Juvenal. It sums up somehow the importance that ancient Greek-Roman tradition gave to the body and health, a balance between body and mind for a happy life.
Nowadays Roman people still keep this notion and live in accordance to it. Ever since the most ancient times Roman Sports have been part of the culture and has had a relevant place in the life of its citizens.
This year just live up to the the past editions, and Rome will not only offer its classical beauty but also Big Gym, the sports village where you can relax enjoying the ‘’Dolce far niente’’, keep fit and have fun as well.
