On Thursday December 21st, the talk show “SciVolando” and the 3tre history return to the Salone Hofer in Madonna di Campiglio, for a night dedicated to Alberto Tomba and all the aspects of his career and character, at the presence of the champion himself
For the third year in a row, Madonna di Campiglio proposes its now-traditional appointment with history, culture and fashion on the eve of the AUDI FIS Ski Alpine World Cup night slalom of Friday December 22nd. In view of the showdown of the ski superstars and the expected duel between Henrik Kristoffersen and Marcel Hirscher, the third edition of the talk-show “SciVolando” will be focused on victory as main theme. On Thursday December 21st at the Salone Hofer (8.00 pm CET), the event, anchored by Italian journalist Marco di Marco, will tell the amazing story of Alberto Tomba, whose highlights in every aspect will be told by Tomba himself and a number of high-profile insiders and witnesses.
“3Tre is a great sports event – commented 3Tre President Lorenzo Conci - matching history, culture and glamour. Our event and Italian alpine ski as a whole are full of stories and champions, symbols of different ages. Alberto Tomba is certainly one of those.”
An idol of the supporters thanks to his powerful skiing, addressed by the “Valanga Azzurra” coach Mario Cotelli as an “all-wheel drive”, the athlete’s side of Tomba was joined by his prominent media personality: no less than the famous Sanremo Music Festival was interrupted to announce the gold medal at the Calgary ’88 Olympic Games. Together with the Italian ski legend, the talk-show will feature Tomba’s historical coaches, like Gustav Thoeni and the President of the Italian Winter Sports Federation Flavio Roda, and journalists such as RaiSport’s deputy-Director Ivana Vaccari, TV commentator Paolo De Chiesa and SkySport’s co-director Giovanni Bruno, who will hold an insightful face-to-face interview with the three-time Olympic Champion.
The second part of the talk show will be dedicated to the year 1987 and the Alberto Tomba first triumph in Madonna di Campiglio. The anniversary will also be celebrated in the two appointments of the “3Tre Legend”, on Thursday December 21st and Friday 22nd. The story of that unforgettable night will also be told by the direct witnesses on the Canalone Miramonti, whilst the event will be closed in style with the presence of the Alberto Tomba Fans Club.
The “SciVolando… sulla Vittoria” initiative, promoted in collaboration between 3Tre, Marcialonga and the Province of Trento, will be repeated in the 2018 Marcialonga opening ceremony: on the occasion, Lillehammer ‘94 Olympic Champion Maurilio De Zolt will be the guest star of the event.
