Celebrative Sticker #38: ANDREA LANFRI!

Who knows what it’s like to see the world from the top of Everest. The Celebrative Sticker #38 solidarity sticker is dedicated to Andrea Lanfri. Born in Lucca, in life he has always had a passion for school, sport and the mountains. In 2015, fulminant meningitis with meningococcal sepsis took away both of his legs, and seven fingers on his hands.

Andrea from this traumatic “experience” was able to find incredible strength of mind and spirit, in the stubborn awareness that his dreams had only suffered a setback. That the sky was still possible to touch, with a finger.

After a long and painful period, Lanfri, thanks to crowdfunding, can begin his new life path as an established sportsman. He enters the Paralympic national running team, wins 9 Italian titles in two years. He won the silver medal in the 4×100m relay at the 2017 World Championships, one silver and two bronze medals at the European Championships. The biggest regret is not being called up for the Rio Olympics despite having achieved the necessary results.

However, Andrea’s real journey has yet to begin. The initial idea of ​​this Celebrative Sticker was to remember a Paralympic athlete, perhaps it will happen in the future, but it is the charm of the mountain, of its peaks that directs the project towards the incredible objectives achieved.

Mountaineering is a sport! To remove any doubts is his presence in the legendary albums “Campioni dello Sport” of the 60s that opened those pages where the myth crossed the legend. Andrea’s climb begins in 2018 with Monte Rosa, from 2019 to 2021 he reaches some of the most exciting peaks in the world on different continents. In 2022 it’s time to climb Everest, on May 13 Andrea reaches the summit at 8,849 meters. becoming the first man to climb the roof of the world with multiple amputations.

As an incredible interlude, before starting the ascent Andrea, in the village of Gorakshep, on April 1st sets a Guinness World Record, running the fastest mile with blades at an altitude of 5 164m, 9 minutes and 48 seconds.

Andrea Lanfri is a symbol of the fortitude of how much one can overturn the “plans of destiny” and rebuild them in one’s own image. Andrea is not a superhero, he is an example, a sportsman, a man.

ANDREA FOR THE “ADOTTA CON LA FIGURINA” PROJECT!

With this solidarity sticker it will be possible to support the “Adotta con la Figurina” project where Figurine Forever engages annually in different solidarity projects. Andrea Lanfri’s solidarity sticker is linked in particular to the support of the Art4Sport Onlus Association (https://www.art4sport.org).

Celebrative Sticker #31: FORTITUDO WHITE SOX!

There are sports stories that it is a pleasure to make known, tell, remember, celebrate. They are not always stories of a single athlete, it would not be enough, sometimes there is an entire team to be the center of attention. An important story of champions in sport and in some way also in life. The Celebrative Sticker #31 is dedicated to the Fortitudo Bologna White Sox!

We often write it, the primary purpose of our project, even before that of fundraising (always important anyway) is to use the charm of “figurine” to tell stories, about sport and often much more, in this series. Sometimes it happens on the contrary, we are the first to come into contact with realities and events we did not know, remaining struck and attracted by them. Perfect and meaningful to make them a solidarity sticker.

The Fortitudo Bologna White Sox are Italy’s champion team in Baseball for the Blind. The team is made up of blind, visually impaired and sighted players, needed to coordinate some game actions. We have tried to convey the idea of ​​the speed, precision and potential of the players inside the folder, in the splendid photos (thanks again to the availability of Giovanni Pini of nonsolovolley.it), the invitation that all we do is to go and watch the sport live.

Baseball for the blind has different rules from the classic one, for example the role of the pitcher does not exist; the hitter, in the attack phase, uses the bat to hit from below, throwing the ball. Sight prompters are provided both in attack and defense, which help blind people to orient themselves better. The ball releases a sound that helps athletes understand its direction.

The photo of the sticker, taken like the others at the final in Milan, celebrates the second consecutive Scudetto. White Sox that not only in Italy but also in Europe and the Americas had the opportunity to compete with other teams, waiting, who knows, to one day have this discipline at the Paralympic Games. Less simple than one might think, also considering how little traditional baseball is considered by the IOC.

FIGURINE FOREVER for WHITE SOX!

With this solidarity sticker it will be possible to support the “Adotta con la Figurina” project where Figurine Forever engages annually in different solidarity projects and support the team and help raise awareness of the unique and incredible reality of Baseball for the Blind.
