VAL DI PEJO – OFFICIAL 2022 SUMMER TRAINING LOCATION

For the first time in our Club’s history, the mountains of Val di Pejo in Trentino will host the Crociati. The team, technical staff and directors will stay in the Kristiania Pure Nature Hotel & Spa and Domina Parco dello Stelvio and train at the Celledizzo Sports Centre, which also has a gym and a press room to speak to the media. During their preparations, the Crociati will also get to know Pejo in all its beauty through the organisation of events in collaboration with the Municipality of Pejo and the Pejo 3000 Tourist Consortium, both of whom made this agreement possible.

MATTIA INCANNELLA (Sales Director – Parma Calcio 1913)

“We’re really happy to have come to this arrangement with Val di Pejo. It will be the first time that our Club has been hosted here, which is another reason to be enthusiastic and excited. It’ll be great to see our fans again: they’ll be able to watch our training sessions and matches and also take part in the activities that will be organised to fully discover this wonderful location. We’d like to thank the Municipality of Pejo and the Pejo 3000 Tourist Consortium for their hard work and cooperation.”

Val di Pejo, a natural oasis with wonderful hospitality in the Trentino part of the Stelvio National Park, is synonymous with nature, history, culture and sports, as well as active, relaxing and wellness holidays. The thermal springs in the village of Pejo Fonti are particularly well-known, while the Pejo 3000 is the first plastic-free ski resort in Europe. The entire valley is both a summer and winter tourist destination, with picturesque landscapes, leisurely walks and exciting mountain hikes making it extremely popular (www.visitvaldipejo.it).

GIANPIETRO MARTINOLLI (Municipality of Pejo Councillor for Tourism, Sport and Leisure)

“Val di Pejo is excited to welcome Parma Calcio 1913 and make our sports centre and services available so that the team can enjoy a productive training camp. We’d like to strengthen our relationship with the city of Parma, a world reference point in terms of food and culture, and with Parma citizens, many of whom come to Val di Pejo to ski, enjoy our thermal baths and take in the Stelvio National Park.”
