"We are pleased to welcome again this year an international chess event in our town from May 25th until June 4th. Hosting such a prestigious chess sporting event is a consolidated tradition for us since many years, and thanks to the commitment of the Municipality of Acqui Terme and of the organisers, Cristina Pernici Rigo and Michele Cordara, it has become a regular and not to be missed event in the Acqui Terme events calendar.
The game of chess is one of the world's most popular one, capable of bringing together even the most distant generations thanks to the irrepressible charm of the 'mental duel' each match generates, and to the opportunity to play almost everywhere.
For this reason, we are honoured to host in Acqui Terme players from all over Europe, to make them feel at home, promoting the long-lasting tradition of the Italian hospitality".
"It will be a unique and enjoyable opportunity to introduce this wonderful and fascinating discipline to all lovers and not of the genre. All chess players are considered athletes par excellence, since chess is a mental discipline offering innumerable benefits for all ages.
We therefore congratulate all the players competing with such great commitment in this discipline based on high logic skill and strategy.
Moreover, we would like to remind that the entire tournament will be supported by numerous side events: blitz chess tournaments, local produce tastings and many other interesting activities to colour our city under the magical “chess” atmosphere.
We wish everyone a successful tournament and good luck to all participants!"
