A.S.D. Canottieri Moto Guzzi tells its story: “It was founded in 1929 as a form of recreation by the entrepreneurial organisation founded by Carlo Guzzi, Giorgio Parodi, and Giovanni Ravelli in Mandello del Lario (Lecco, Italy). The first appearance of a watercraft tagged ‘G.S. Moto Guzzi’ was at Comacina Island on 8 July 1929. Subsequently, the sport team also participated in the international competitions which, on 31 August 1947 in Lucerna, earned the legendary 4 - with Moioli, Morille, Invernizzi, and Faggi, the gold medal in the European Championships.

This was the first win that would lead to the most glorious period of the sport association. The 4- Giuseppe Moioli, Elio Morille, Giovanni Invernizzi, and Franco Faggi, then became Olympic Champions in London with a time of 6’39” on 9 August 1948.

A.S.D. Canottieri Moto Guzzi decided to launch, along with the Arcobaleno section of the Mandello del Lario Polisportiva, a project of sports inclusion to favour the complete autonomy of the athlete and to conduct a normalised sporting practise. Rowing can be practised by people with motor disabilities and intellectual disabilities. Rowing provides an important psychological benefit. In fact, contact with the water favours relaxation and serenity. Rowing together on a long boat creates positive synergy and perspectives of increased social relationships with clear advantages for building a greater sense of integration and adaptation.

12 September 2023 – “As we were in Italy celebrating the anniversary of the Olympic Gold Medal, in Belgrade Andrea Panizza and his teammates, inspired us by winning a silver medal in the World Championships!”

From 2019, A.S.D. Canottieri Moto Guzzi began to organise a sport path dedicated to these young people and the funds raised are destined for: a new boat suitable for the practise; equipment to adapt the watercraft (i.e. floats), platforms to enter the water for those with physical disabilities; new rowing machines; providing specific training courses for the current coaches; hiring new specialised and dedicated staff.”
