Associazione per lo studio
del Metodo Feldenkrais®
Associazione sportiva culturale dilettantistica
"The ASSOCIAZIONE PER LO STUDIO DEL METODO FELDENKRAIS® a.s.c.d.
is a non-profit Organization uninvolved in any political, racial or religious activity.
It aims to: promote activities that deepen the theoretical and applicative aspects of the
Feldenkrais Method®; support the spread of sport disciplines, whether they
are acknowledged by the Italian National Olympic Committee or not; further the training of its
members and of young people; spread the culture of the practiced disciplines and encourage the
study of related issues. It organizes national and international sport events and related advertisement,
conferences, congresses, symposia; it initiates social actions and afterschool training by promoting
projects that support active attitudes and behaviours and applying the methods of free associating.
The Associazione seeks to contact and meet with the social forces active in our society, with public
Institutions, local agencies, cultural, tourist and sports organizations to contribute to the
implementation of projects within a community plan for leisure and sports activities. It can perform
recreational and teaching activities in the field of sports, environment and other fields of common
interest. In compliance with the national laws and regulations, federal statutes and any other
relavant regulation in the case in point, it can carry out any other necessary activity to raise
funds in order to support the athletic, civil, cultural and democratic development of the Association
and its members.
The Associazione is or will be affiliate to any Italian Sport Federation or other similar bodies and
to international organisations for the Feldenkrais Method® that it will judge appropriate to join,
accepting explicitly and applying their regulations and any other decision made by the Federal bodies.
The colours of the Associazione, beside the National colours (green, white, and red), as well as its
symbol will be decided after the approval of these by-laws."
