Veronica Squinzi,CEO of Mapei and Vice President of U.S. Sassuolo Calcio, had this to say: “Generazione S is a wonderfully innovative project for promoting the ethical and educational principles of sport among young people. A great social responsibility project open to everybody in the spirit of sharing and inclusion, which Mapei immediately decided to lend its full support. We believe football is a means of promoting such values as fairness, responsibility and equality among boys and girls: an efficient means of educating them, bringing out their skills and talents and nourishing their dreams. As Mapei has grown, it has also been inspired by passion, hard work, talent, teamwork, enthusiasm, determination and perseverance in taking on new challenges, values that have always been in its DNA. Our support for the world of sport also comes from a desire to help the community and entire country to develop socially”.
