The Anterselva range and track are avant-garde structures, used by the most important national teams on the world scene. For us it is a privilege to be able to build partnerships like the one with the Südtirol Arena " reports the head of the major competitive department Davide Dallago.
One year after the inauguration of the "fifth technical coordination section of South Tyrol" at the "Lugramani" barracks in Brunico, in the presence of the commander of the Alpine Troops general of the Army Corps Claudio Berto, the calendar of meetings of the teams of the Army and national teams have significantly thickened.
