The non-competitive event will see participants self-arbitrate the meeting in the name of fair play.

Furthermore, at the Mondiali Antirazzisti it will be possible to watch the performances, and in some cases even try, of different sports: bmx, skate, pakur, integrated dance, juggling and circus, boxing, running and walking, roller skates, table football and ping pong.

Info and specific program of the Mondiali Antirazzisti in Florence.

Copula Mundi is an experimental festival for the creation of shared imagery, which brings together different cultural, artistic and sporting associations of Tuscany. In the manifesto we read: We reject all discrimination, whatever it may be. We consider the differences as a fundamental resource in all fields of life: it is from different points of view that the “different” solutions arrive to solve the usual problems, those that “normal” solutions cannot solve. The same nature is based on “bio diversity”: the real unnatural thing is homologation.

We really recommend a visit both to support the Mondiali Antirazzisti and to visit the spaces dedicated to debates, creativity, play and exchange.
