Circolo Canottieri Aniene History
In 1892 Alessandro Morani and the Fasoli brothers founded the Aniene Rowing Club. The historic crew of the first four gigs, called "Rugantino", collected the first prestigious laurels, rapidly increasing the consideration of the Aniene Rowing Club in Rome and throughout our country.
In rowing to the unforgettable successes of the 30s and 40s obtained by athletes such as Antonio Ghiardello, Giliante D'Este, Francesco Cossu and Antonio Provenzani medaled at the Los Angeles Olympics of '34 together with Romolo Pasta bronze medal in the London Olympics of '48, a period of continuous affirmations followed.
Ghiardello, represented a real competitive explosion. Towards the 1950s, the club made a decisive choice for its future and laid the foundations for the construction of the large complex that currently constitutes our headquarters.
With the new course, impressed on the Aniene Rowing Club by the transfer to Acqua Acetosa, other disciplines joined the rowing, which remains the pride of our partnership. In fact, over the years tennis, five-a-side football, canoeing and swimming have also been added.
By virtue and as a demonstration of the constant commitment to the dissemination of sport and the passion for sports, on 23 January 2002 the President of the Council, on the proposal of CONI, handed over to the Aniene Rowing Club, the first and only Sports Club to obtain this recognition, the Collare d'Oro, the highest honor in the sports field of our country.
The Aniene Rowing Club has now become a social and sporting reality of absolute value both in Italy and internationally thanks to the activities of its members, managers, technicians and athletes who lend their work.
