WO*MEN’S RUGBY LAND OF FREEDOM: a window on the world – INTERVIEWS
What is freedom for you?
For us it is a world in which a woman and a man can decide to take control of their lives regardless of stereotypes and prejudices.
Starting with small things … even just choosing a sport that you enjoy, that makes you feel good and makes your eyes shine when you think about it.
Then, that feeling of pride of the first tackle … the tightening of your stomach before the game because you know it will be hard … the joy of hugging your teammates when you win and the feeling of not being alone when you lose … all this helps you take other steps in life.

A 30-YEAR LONG BRIDGE: A GENERATIONAL OVERVIEW OF MINDSET AND FREEDOM
The national part of our project tells the stories of Italian rugby players who competed in the first 1991 World Female Championship – and the stories of today’s athletes, who are going to play in a competition that is different in terms of both organisation and political geography, thirty years later.
Who were those first players who, while still being not recognised by the Federation, defied both public opinion and the male-dominated rugby scene?
What are the differences and the similarities with today’s Azzurre?
From 1991 to 2021, an overview of women in rugby as the central theme of a changing world.
