We are happy to start our new partnership with Società Canottieri Firenze, one of the oldest sports clubs in Italy and the first Florentine rowing society, formally established in 1886.
The first rowing activity yesterday was a great success.
After a tour at the historical premises of Società Canottieri, and a technical training “on the ground”, it was time for our students to venture into the boat and conquer the beautiful Arno River that runs through Florence, offering spectacular views on Ponte Vecchio and a different point of view on the city centre’s most iconic buildings.
The sportive trial lesson proved to be an important lesson on teambuilding for participating students from various year groups and nationalities, as well as on the importance of team effort and leadership: rowing is a unique sport activity that requires intensive individual effort in order to succeed as a group.
A valuable lesson for our aspiring managers and business leaders!
A special thanks to the president of the rowing society Mr Michele Nannelli for hosting us!
ESE Florence students now have the unique opportunity you become a temporary member of this exclusive rowing society and take part in training sessions on the water.
In addition, they will have access to fitness training (yoga, pilates, spinning), to the club’s well-equipped gym, as well as the Terrace (great for studying or simply admiring the view on the Arno River) bar and restaurant.
You can find the Florentine rowing society “Società Canottieri Firenze” on the Lungarno Anna Maria Luisa de Medici, n°8: look or the little green door near the Uffizi Gallery’s viewing platform!
