This is not the first time the bridge is part of the programming of the channel Rai Sport, in 2009 the same channel aired a series of programs focused on bridge, organized by the current President of the FIGB (Italian Federation Bridge). No doubt this will be a valuable tool for the visibility and dissemination of bridge as a sport.
This 2013 begins a new adventure, with a new transmission every two weeks. The first episode will air on April 24 at 18.30 Italian time on Rai Sport 2 (repeated at 00.20). The testimony of honor for this baptism is the President of CONI, Giovanni Malagò, President of FIGB Gianni Medugno and Deputy Director, Rai Sport, Jacopo Volpi.
