A Muso Duro / Hard Nosed

Italian wheelchair basketball team 1960s Panel Discussion with Director Marco Pontecorvo (in person attendance) begins at 7 pm, screening begins at 7:45 pm.

In the backdrop of the 1950s, a time when impairments often led to loss of employment and social exclusion, Antonio Maglio, a visionary physician and manager at INAIL, dared to challenge the status quo. He staunchly believed in the transformative power of sports as a vital tool for rehabilitation. Maglio's idea was nothing short of revolutionary: he envisioned the fusion of the 1960 Olympics with an international tournament. This ground-breaking event aimed to liberate disabled individuals from the shadows, showcasing their remarkable abilities on the global stage for the very first time.
