GAME OPEN: #ILTROFEOACASATUA
WATCH THE VIDEO PRESENTATION IN ENGLISH
Il Trofeo Città di Prato joins the great family of Italian sport to launch the GAME OPEN: #ILTROFEOACASATUA campaign with the goal of get together children, young people, educators, teachers, parents and coaches supporting each other to overcome the Covid-19 crisis.
An initiative that will try to keep alive the aims of this organism of our city, which for about 50 years has supported and supported the world of schools in the teaching of motor and school sports activities.
We will try to be still operational and useful to children, young people, teachers, parents, through game and movement proposals that we hope will be mutually supportive in the period that will serve to overcome the current crisis imposed by the Covid-19 emergency.
We want to do our part to make the “#RESTAREACASA” more pleasant and therefore to help prevent the further spread of the virus, offering ideas to spend the days in a positive and useful way.
Moving, jumping, smiling and having fun can become not only a way to keep active, but a duty to feel better and externalize our internal resources, stimulating the desire to create and collaborate together even in the small spaces that we have available today.
An opportunity to reflect with your family on the importance of positive values that even simple movement and play activities can convey.
Children and young people can be great teachers in this and we think that with a few and suitable suggestions, creative ideas and games can be develop and the childrens can also involve the family members.
WE MUST HELP OUR PARASYMPATHIC SYSTEM TO WORK. HOW?
Starting from Friday 27 March, every Tuesday and Friday, through the official website of the Città di Prato Trophy www.trofeocittadiprato.it, the school teachers, with whom the TCP will interact from the beginning, and the social channels of the CGFS, a TCP Educator will launch a game proposal to be made at home with what you have available.
Tips and ideas for building, even with recycled materials, small sports tools, thus stimulating children, teenagers and parents to develop, create and play, researching imaginative possibilities of safe use in the spaces available, indoors or outdoors.
Once sure of what has been achieved and experienced, each family will have to film themselves at work, and then share online through any social channel (facebook, instagram, twitter, youtube, tik-tok or other….) your video, making sure to include at least one of our hashtags in the post: #ILTROFEOACASATUA #IOGIOCOACASA #IOMIALLENOACASA #T ROFEOCITTADIPRATO #CGFS. Posting the hashtag is very important because only in this way can we recognize ourselves and find ourselves on the WEB.
HOW TO MAKE THE VIDEO. SOME ADVICES
Even if there are no pre-established rules, we advise you to post videos of about 30/45 seconds maximum.
Indicatively, each video could be structured as follows:
- THE PRESENTATION OF THE TEAM (5 seconds) – e.g. “Hi, we are Andrea, Marta and Luca and we made this video entitled … NB: not only brothers, but also parents, grandparents and any pets are welcome in the video
- SHOW US YOUR TOOL (2 seconds)
- THE GAME TITLE (5 seconds) – e.g. “The game we invented to use the tool is called … (the name of the game is important and it’s up to your imagination to create it!)
- THE EXPLANATION OF THE GAME (15/30 seconds) – “You play like this …” (it is recommended not only to explain, but also to show the game in action)
- THE GREETINGS (2 seconds) – Greet your audience and take on the challenge of inventing an equally creative and fun game. Furthermore, if you have a printer, you can print and frame the sign that can be downloaded at this link
If you prefer don’t show your children, You can Download the mask and start the game:
We recommend posting only one video per game.
Those who want to invent more games with the same tool can post more videos. It is not forbidden!
Nobody will win, indeed we will all win!
There will be no better or worse video and there will be no leaderboards.
The goal is to create empathy, strength, courage, a desire to have fun, share ideas and smiles, to move as much as possible within our homes.
In short, help our parasympathetic system!
In an old Jim Jarmusch movie “Daunbailò”, a young actor Roberto Benigni is arrested and placed in an American prison, made only of bars.
Do you know what our fellow citizen does first?
He takes a chalk and draws a window in the wall and says: “Here there is no air, it suffocates, better open the window!”

WE ASK CHILDREN, BOYS AND PARENTS TO DO THE SAME, TO OPEN AN IDEAL WINDOW ON THE WORLD. AND TO DO IT THROUGH THE GAME THAT IS THE REAL PROGENITOR OF SPORT.
With a promise: when everything is over we will organize a large outdoor party, all together, young and old, without fear of touching and hugging us. On that occasion it will be nice to review all the videos and remember the strength and courage we have had these days.
We can all become supporters of each other!
Let’s do our part to stop the virus, do something more for people in our community and inspire others to do the same! GAME OPEN!
Thanks in advance
