6 June 2014 — Rêves de Gosse at the "Panero" Airport

On June 6th the important international event "Rêves de Gosse" (Child Dreams) made a stop for the first time in Italy, organized by the French Association "Le Chevaliers du Ciel", under the patronage of the French Senate and the sponsorship of several public and private companies and associations, including Rotary International and Lions. The effort of the Chevaliers is directed towards accepting differences and involves children in school projects that culminate in each stopping place in a "baptism of flying", onboard airplanes made available by the pilots of the Association and a military transport plane of the Armée de l'Air. The stop at Villanova, an absolute first in Italy in 18 editions, must be credited to the intense effort of the Aeroclub Savona and his President, Mauro G. Zunino.

For the occasion, the Rotary Clubs Albenga and Alassio have provided their support and have taken part in the event with a stand inside the airport.
