MILAN – On Sunday 20 February San Siro played host to not only a top-class football match but also an event which taught life lessons to the youth of today.

There’s no room for discrimination in football. We are all taught this and we take it into our everyday lives. We are all equals, both on and off the pitch. Our differences enrich us; be it in how we look, our tastes, our passions, and our sensibilities. They offer us opportunities to grow, not a chance to build walls.

At the end of the activity the students and teachers got to enjoy a special evening at San Siro watching Inter v Sassuolo. While the result didn’t go in the Nerazzurri’s favour it was an unforgettable experience and a great way to round off the “Show Racism the Red Card” project, which was co-financed by the European Union and aimed at youngsters around the continent.
