Italian Open Championships, Grosseto, Italy

The 2014 IPC Athletics Grand Prix Italian Open Championships will take place in Grosseto, Italy, from 30 May-1 June at the Carlo Zecchini Olympic Stadium. In recent years, this competition venue has hosted the 2013 edition of the IPC Grand Prix, several national athletics championships and two major athletics events: the IAAF World Junior Championships in 2004 and the European Junior Championships in 2001.

The Italian Federation of Paralympic and Experimental Sports (the FISPES) will act as Local Organising Committee. Grosseto has once again been selected as host of the Italian leg of the IPC Grand Prix for its renowned hospitality capacity and its excellent sporting facility which has two IAAF certified tracks.

Grosseto is a city located in famous Tuscany at the heart of Maremma, a coastal area extending along the region. The city centre is situated 12km away from the seaside.

The Fattoria La Principina hotel, one of Maremma’s best resorts, has been designated by the Local Organising Committee as the main event’s accommodation and headquarters, offering all athletes, teams and officials the most suitable hospitality.

Classification opportunities for athletes with a physical (PI), visual (VI) and intellectual (II) impairment will be held from 28-29 May.
